T.H.E. Cat - Netflix

Out of the night comes a man who saves lives at the risk of his own. Once a circus performer; an aerialist who refused the net. Once a cat burglar; a master among jewel thieves. And now, a professional bodyguard. Primitive, savage, in love with danger--The Cat!

Part Gypsy by birth, Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat lives up to his name, having worked as a circus acrobat and a cat burglar. Now he works as a bodyguard, hiring his services out to those who can afford him. But it's not just money that The Cat is after: it's the thrill of danger and the challenge of the chase.

T.H.E. Cat is an American action drama that aired on NBC during the 1966–1967 television season. The series was co-sponsored by R.J. Reynolds (Winston) and Lever Brothers and was created by Harry Julian Fink. Robert Loggia starred as the title character, Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat. T.H.E. Cat is a forerunner of television characters such as The Equalizer, who skirt the edges of the law and bring skills from earlier careers on behalf of those needing more help than the police can offer. The series preceded the 1968–1970 ABC television series It Takes a Thief, which was also about a cat burglar who used his skills for good.
