Horrid Henry and the Name Game is the ninth episode in Series 2 and the 61st episode overall.


Henry and Peter adopt a cat - or rather, it adopts them - but they just can't decide what to call it.


In this episode, a black cat appears on Horrid Henry's family's doorstep and they adopt it. Henry decides he would like the cat to be named 'Buster', though Perfect Peter would rather it be called 'Tiddles'. Inspired by their parents, Henry and Peter set out to collect votes on which name is most popular. Meanwhile, the cat, struggling to cope with the arguments, leaves their home and Moody Margaret adopts it instead. Henry and Peter see it in her garden and Margaret calls it Fifi. They later discover that the cat was truly a girl, as it gives birth.



Horrid Henry: His name is Buster!

Perfect Peter: No it's not, his name is Tiddles!

Horrid Henry: Buster!

Perfect Peter: Tiddles!

Horrid Henry: BUSTER!

Perfect Peter: TIDDLES!
