[[Toodles Galore]] is a ''[[Tom and Jerry]]'' character, who first appeared in the [[1946]] short, ''[[Springtime for Thomas]]''. Toodles is an attractive female, white cat, and is supposedly [[Tom Cat|Tom's]] ''usual'' love interest. Although Tom is a reputed [[Promiscuity|playboy]], and had other love interests before and after Toodles. Toodles is the only love interest who appeared more than thrice, and is probably the most favored. During the classic era, Tom had to compete twice against [[Butch (Tom and Jerry)|Butch]] and even once against [[Spike (Tom and Jerry)|Spike/Killer]] for Toodles' affection, and he lost them all. Toodles is one of the most anthropomorphic animals in the series, with the only cat features being her tail, nose and ears.
The [[Emperor penguin]] (''Aptenodytes forsteri'') is the world's largest species of penguin, and one of the world's largest birds. It may grow to 1.2m (4 ft) high and weigh up to 40kg (88lb).


Toodles is apparently open to any form of romantic relationships, even with non-cats, as shown in the end of ''[[Casanova Cat]]'' where [[Jerry Mouse|Jerry]] got to make out with Toodles as they left Tom and Butch behind, and ''[[Solid Serenade]]'', where she is clearly interested in a relationship with Spike the [[bulldog]], who tries to woo her by playing with Tom's tail on a [[double bass]].
Like all penguins, it is flightless but a good swimmer.  It is confined to Antarctica, where its habitat is threatened by the melting of the ice cap, leading to fears that it will be extinct by 2100.
