The Catbus is a character in the Studio Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. It is a large creature, depicted as a grinning, twelve legged cat with a hollow body that serves as a bus, complete with windows and seats coated with fur, and a large, bushy tail. The character’s popularity has led to its use in a spinoff film, toys for children, and an art car, among other products and influences. With its large elongated smile and its ability to appear and disappear at will, the Catbus is reminiscent of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, hence this awesome mash-up!

I’m not sure of the exact location of this painting of a giant Yellow Prancing Cat with Wings and a huge Cheshire Cat-like Grin, but it is visible from the High Line Park, somewhere between 30th and 20th Streets.
Here it is with slightly more perspective, if that helps.
Update 1/16/18: I just discovered that the artist is Joseph Ford! Thanks, Internet!
As is so often the case with incredibly beautiful custom cakes like this Cheshire Cat Cake pictured above, it is just too cool to cut up and eat. Am I right? I am.
I love this Cheshire Cat-Inspired Lamp design as part of an Alice in Wonderland-Themed Girl’s Bedroom.
Wow, what a cool collectible or nice housewarming gift for the Alice In Wonderland Fan in your life!
