Even the term did not exist back then, but "De Kat" (the Cat), the eponymous protagonist of this TV series, is what we would today call an ecoterrorist. In a feline disguise, the Cat has vowed to put a stop to the environmental depredations of some greedy captains of industry by engaging in (by present-day standards relatively benign) acts of sabotage. The public's sympathy is mostly on the Cat's side, but things get really complicated when some people start to engage in copycat actions, and the real Cat has to figure out who is using his name and trademark disguise to pull off some daring capers of their own.Written by

Pretty interesting series from the early 70's about a superhero of sorts, called "The Cat". In his costume and mask he resembles Batman, but his foes are of a different kind. Our hero is what would later probably be called an ecoterrorist, infiltrating and sabotaging a company that clearly is polluting the environment.
His actions do not harm anyone - as a matter of fact he gains a lot of friends as the series proceeds - and eventually even gains sympathy from the unlikeliest of people.
A great series for its time, supposedly situated in Flanders, but in actuality filmed on location in the south of France, lending a kind of surreal quality to the series to those who saw and enjoyed it.
