The Brains behind "Mr. Kitty's True Soap Stories" Speaks!

Mr. Kitty and Stacy

The brilliant parody that took the Internet by storm recently was the four installments of True Soap Stories of Y&R’s stuffed cat, Mr. Kitty.   Greg Edwards, Y&R’s web content developer is the man behind the spoof and he spoke with Soap Opera Digest about the genesis of the concept and how he incorporated much of the cast.  Here are some exceprts:

“I started reading all the fan comments about the cat, and how there must’ve been some weird negotiations between Paul played by Doug Davidon and the kitty, and I figured I’d take that and embellish it and go way out into left field with it. I then went and talked to all of the actors and asked them to think about other actors they’d worked with in the past; I then said, “Okay, tell stories about those actors, but just put the Mr. Kitty name in instead.” I put it all together like that and it turned into this really wild story.  I came up with about a page of basic story about the cat that’s the clichéd small town person comes to Hollywood and they don’t know anybody, and all of a sudden, their head and their ego gets huge as they gain stardom … it followed every story out there, every cliché [laughs]. It was these certain points that I wanted the actors to hit. Then I’d sit down with the record button and I’d improv with them and act like I was interviewing them. Some of the actors I’d be really short with and rude to, and some I’d be really cool to. I tried to mold the story as it went. That was the way it went with everybody except for Jeanne Cooper[Kay]. I hit the record button with her and she just went off into this crazy story and 10 minutes later, my jaw was dropped and I said, “Okay, we’re done.”
