The Pekes and the Pollicles surge into the junkyard and surround the large grey tabby cat… All attention is on Munkustrap.

Munkustrap is an energetic, dignified adult tabby cat that acts as a guide for the Jellicles, a protector of the kittens and a fighter of the infamous Macavity! His mature judgement and strong imposing figure sees him as the second in command of the Jellicles, and he is proven worthy of this position when he courageously throws Macavity out of the junkyard.

Munkustrap is Rum Tum Tugger’s older brother, so as well as keeping a watchful eye over the kittens, he also keeps Tugger in check.

He is strongly connected to Old Deuteronomy and shows his responsibility for the Jellicles in the direction of “The Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles”. Munkustrap oversees the entire show, letting the cats and audience members know when it is time to nominate and choose the cat who will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a new Jellicle Life.
