Butch is a Tom and Jerry character - a black alley cat - who first appeared in the 1943 short Baby Puss, and was known then simply as "Meathead". He was the leader of the alley cat bullies who tormented Tom because his young female owner treated him literally like a baby, especially dressing up Tom up in a diaper, a bonnet, and pink mittens for all of his paws. Tom was quite a mock show for Butch and his gang, as well as Jerry.
