Behind the scenes[]

  • Keith is from Kalamazoo, which in reality is an actual place located in the state of Michigan. This makes Keith one of the few non-Postcards from Buster characters to come from a place in the real world.
  • He looks similar to a student at Estabrook.
  • He is a self portrait of character designer Richard Morris.[1]


  1. Morris, Rich (May 15, 2019). This little cat-guy is a self portrait I designed. Tumblr. “This little cat-guy is a self portrait I designed for Arthur back in the early 90′s when I was a character designer for the show. He appears in “The Big Blow-Up” as a soccer player playing opposite Arthur and his friends. He later appeared in several crowd scenes at concerts and plays and shows and things… and I believe after I left the series he even got a speaking part as a ‘villain’ in one episode.”
