Sergeant Stripes is a TV series created by David Bonner which first aired on CBeebies on 1 September 2003. Stripes is a cute gray cat who lives in a sleepy provincial police station with little Katie and her father, PC Harker. Both they and pretty Sergeant Parker think Stripes is merely a meowing moggy, but when this little cat slopes off to his bed underneath the stairs for a nap, well, that's when the fun really starts.
