|First appearance||"Mother's Day" (2ACV14)|
Q.T. McWhiskers is an invention by Professor Farnsworth which is intended to be a cat shaped children's toy which when petted, shoots rainbows from its eyes and says meow. The rainbows emitted do not appear to be dangerous to humans. They are, though, powerful enough to light cigarettes if held close to the eye. However, Mom wanted to weaponize the toys by making them 8 feet tall and replacing the rainbows with neutron lasers, which angered Professor Farnsworth, causing him to dump her, which began their conflict. Undeterred, Mom proceeded with her modifications and re-purposed the disturbingly charming toys as intimidating and destructive weapons, specifically to support the Mother's Day Robot Rebellion.
Prof. Farnsworth: Good news, Mom. I've invented a new children's toy. I call it "Q.T. McWhiskers". When you pet it, it shoots rainbows from its eyes.
[He strokes the cat. It meows and projects rainbows onto Prof. Farnsworth's and Mom's foreheads.]
Mom: Wonderful, Hubie. We'll build them 8-feet tall and replace the rainbow with a neutron laser. We'll make billions on the intergalactic arms market!
Prof. Farnsworth: But things 8-feet tall aren't cute! Thats why my calossal tamie tinkle doll was such a failure!
Mom: Darling Hubie, I should never have tried to tamper with that cute little Q.T. McWhiskers.
Prof. Farnsworth: No, it was silly of me to object; one-foot tall, eight-feet, 15-feet, what does it matter?
Mom: You should see the new 16-foot models.
Prof. Farnsworth: [He pulls his hands away.] 16 feet? Go to hell!
