SAMURAI CAT GOES TO THE MOVIES by Mark E. Rogers

SAMURAI CAT GOES TO THE MOVIES

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Miaowara Tomokato, the feline whose tongue is sharper than his sword, returns for a fifth engagement in this series by Rogers (The Sword of Samurai Cat, 1991, etc.). This time, Tomokato and his nephew, Shiro, take on the heroes of the silver screen in a sequence of parodies of American film favorites. Pursued throughout by the Terminator, Shiro races through the land of Oz, to Zirconsville, where he encounters the wizard, who wears a KKK hood (``Nobody told me he was a Grand Wizard''), and is told that in order to return home, he must steal a tanker of topsoil from the Wicked Witch of the Southeast. Rescued from the mess by Tomokato, Shiro moves on to a parody of the Seven Samurai, then finds himself on board the Starship Eisenhower, with its crew, Captain Paunch, First Officer Spocky, and Chief Cleavage Officer Lt. O'Hara. Tomokato and Shiro's adventures end with an encounter with their guardian angel, Henry, who tries to protect them from the likes of cannibal Hasdrubal Lectern and Ubersaurus Rex, and, of course, the Terminator, who pursues them still. Rogers fans will find this wacky, zany, hilarious. Others may well find it mind-numbingly silly and occasionally offensive.
