MC Skat Kat is an animated anthropomorphic cat character and fictional rapper who appeared in American singer Paula Abdul's 1989 music video for Opposites Attract, in the album Forever Your Girl, published by Virgin. The music video is noted primarily for both its early fusion of live-action and animation elements and its creation of a fictional musician.

The character was designed and created by American animator Michael Patterson and voiced by The Wild Pair duo of Bruce DeShazer and Marv Gunn on "Opposites Attract", later by Derrick Stevens in the MC Skat Kat Solo album effort.
