I thought he was a dog, too. What I want to know, though, is why Pete is so nice on the newest episodes?! I swear, he's barely even charging Mickey to go anywhere and seems like he's their friend!

ETA: Wikipedia says he's a cat! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_%2...y_character%29

From Wikipedia

(also known by variations of his name, including Peg-Leg Pete, Bad Pete, Big Pete, Big Bad Pete, and Black Pete) is a fictional character from the Walt Disney Company studios. He is an anthropomorphic cat and is occasionally depicted with a pegleg, and known as the arch-nemesis of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy. Though usually associated with the Mickey Mouse universe, Pete appeared in Disney's animated cartoon series "Alice Comedies" long before Mickey, and is Disney's oldest continuing character. He was a relatively obscure character until appearing as a regular character in the 1990s TV series Goof Troop. Though Pete is officially a cat, his feline appearance was subdued in Goof Troop and he resembled a canine like many other characters in the series.

Yes, Pete is a cat, most people are thrown off by that because he lived in a world of dogs in Goof Troop.

He's a cat. That's why in the original Goofy cartoons that he and Goofy don't get along. Cat vs. dog...

I think on one clubhouse episode it does say he is a cat i thought he was a dog until then but it figures really that a mouse has a cat as an enemy

Pete's a cat.
In one episode they used a ball of yarn to distract him from chasing them - reasoning of course that cats like playing with yarn.

What I really cannot understand is if Tigger, pooh, rabbit and every other animal in the hundred acre wood can speak - why can't Buster?????

This was going to be my reply - the yarn episode.

Maybe Buster doesn't speak because he is a really dog and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood's charcters are make believe?
