World’s First Goofy Cat Video

Boxing Cats

Have you ever trolled the internet looking at goofy cat videos? OK, stupid question.

But did you ever stop and wonder what was the first funny cat video... or the first cat film for that matter?  Look no further.

Predating YouTube and LOL Cats by more than a century, was the granddaddy of all cat clips, the boxing cats.

This first wacky cat video was actually a black and white film called "Professor Welton’s Boxing Cats." It was shot in 1894 by Thomas Edison's movie studio, Black Maria. This oddity features two cats boxing in a boxing ring, with actual boxing glove on.

This was obviously not ASPCA or Humane Society approved, but the first of its kind, none-the-less.
