Download the Free ToonCat App Here

  • More precisely, you only download a shortcut for the App, to place on your desktop.

  • Optionally, you may run the shortcut directly from this browser's download manager, without needing to save it to your desktop.
  • This App Doesn't Need a Browser

    That's right -- No need to get tangled up with browser issues like cookies, history, or whatever. With our shortcut on your desktop, you can double-click whenever your computer is on-line to get the full ToonCat experience with no browser at all.

    Not Sure if Java is Installed?

    No problem. If you try to run the App without Java being installed on your computer, your browser will auto-open to the Java.com website so that you can download Java for FREE prior to running our app. The page looks something like this, depending on Windows vs Mac, OS version#, etc.

    Blocked by Security?

    Note: Security-stop messages don't always look exactly like this one.

    When starting the App, you might encounter a security stop, on account of this site lacking a standard security certificate. Hey, we're still in R&D here! You'll need to make a one-time change to your Java controls by adding "http://tooncat.com" to the Security Exceptions list. Here's how:

  • For Windows users, Java controls can be reached via the Windows Control Panel (e.g. a right-click on the Start Button in the lower left corner of the console). Find the "Java" icon within the Control Panel. If your Control Panel is viewing by category, you'll find this in the "Programs" group.
  • For Mac users, [???]
  • From here on, steps are the same for Mac or Windows...
  • Note (again): Security Controls don't always look exactly like this.
  • Click this "Java" shortcut, and a grey-ish Java Control Panel will pop up.
  • Click the "Security" tab at the top of the panel.
  • Make sure that the box labeled "Enable Java content in the browser" is checked.
  • Next, click the "Edit Site List..." button. Another grey-ish Exception Site List editor window will pop up.
  • Click the "Add" button and type http://tooncat.com.
  • Click all the "OK" buttons to dismiss these panels.
  • Re-launch the App.
  • What's this App Good For?

    The App is a test-bed proving ground for a new multi-media language called Snippets (written on top of Java). It runs about 6 minutes' worth of silliness straight out of the starting gate, plus a lot of other stuff you can access via the navigator jewel in the lower left corner of the window. You can bet that once we get all the bugs out of Snippets, you'll be seeing stuff seriously more awesome than ToonCat. Enjoy...
