Grumpy Cat, the frowning puss with a sweet disposition, very patiently tolerated the measuring and fitting required to become the very first feline to be immortalized by the famous Madame Tussauds. Grumpy’s likeness will become a permanent fixture at the San Francisco location later this year.
In step with Grumpy Cat’s digital celebrity, her figure will be an animatronic with five different movements. The animatronic will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds’ San Francisco location later this year in typically aloof fashion by Grumpy Cat herself. After a short stay at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, the animatronic will tour the remaining five Madame Tussauds attractions across the US.
