Ages ago, Madkat was an insane and powerful court jester who was replaced. He sought revenge on the jester
who replaced him and the knight, queen and king who imprisoned him in a jack-in-a-box in Season 1 Episode 12.

Centuries later, once brilliant comedian turned asylum patient Lenny Ringtail escapes and fuses with the jester's spirit after finding the jack-in-a-box and gains the ability to warp reality at a whim, this makes him virtually unstoppable and his only weakness is the small balls at the end of his fools cap. Together they take revenge upon those who symbolized the ones' who imprisoned Madkat. He captured David Litterbin {Jester}, Mayor Manx {King}, Callie Briggs {Queen}, and Commander Feral {Knight} (This supports the possibility that Queen Callista may be an ancestor of Callie, and Tabor the Knight may be an ancestor of Commander Feral). After T-Bone destroys Madkat by hitting his weak spot, Ringtail's sanity and career were restored after he is knocked out by Commander Feral and Razor. Lenny was guest-starred on the David Litterbin show to promote his bestselling book Madkat and Me. He appeared only in "Enter the Madkat".

He appeared only in Season 3-6 turned from evil to good..
