COOL CATS - The 1983-88 Mercury CougarCOOL CATS - The 1983-88 Mercury Cougar


Revised August 3, 2016

Over the last few years we've been trying to document every instance of a 1983-88 Cougar in movies, TV shows and music videos. This, of course, necessitates lots of free time and a penchant for 1980's entertainment. The latter is just fine by us. Except that we're having a little trouble with the former, as we never seem to have enough of it. Still, we've found enough time to add some examples below.

We've already scoured a few movie database sites for the information below, but we've also found some on our own and took screenshots. If you have some info on a Fox Cat that you've seen in a movie, TV show or video, please let us know about it, and (preferably) provide some screen shots if possible. We'd love to keep this collection growing!
