Cats Kilworth au head canons.
eSo if you don’t know, the Kilworth 2019 production of cats was very ww2 based. The set an all the costumes reflected that. I strongly recommend looking the designs up because they’re really cool. (and they inspired theses soo)
-Jennyanydots was a teacher once upon a time. When the war started up she joined the army as a nurse. While on active duty she met Skimbleshanks who had left his job as a conductor to join the army as well. The two fell in love and when they left the army got married.
-Old Deuteronomy is a WW1 vet. He was drafted when his sons were very young (Tugger only two) and when he returned he discovered Grizabella had abandoned the boys. They were in the care of a young woman named Jellylorum and her father in law named Gus. The two had taken care of the kids in order to do their part, as Jellylorum’s husband had also went away to war. Later, when the Jellicle’s became a group who took shelter in the subways, Deuteronomy was chosen as the community leader thanks to his war expertise.
-Munkustrap joined the military in order to follow in his father’s footsteps but was unable to continue because of health reasons. He received an honorable discharge but was always ashamed of it.
-Demeter was a ‘lady of the night’ so to speak. She had to make money somehow, and incidentally got pregnant by Macavity. She told him but he completely rejected her at first. When Munkustrap arrived home from war he found out about what his brother did and invited Demeter and her sister to stay with his family so he could right his brother’s wrongs. Macavity found out and got extremely jealous.
-Admetus, Electra, and Carbucketty are all children of Jellylorum and Asparagus Jr. While Admetus aims to be a civilized gentlemen, his young siblings are feral children. This is because, after their home town was bombed everyone in the Jellicle tribe went to live in the underground train station. In those circumstances Jellylorum could barely manage to raise her young kids to be prim and proper.
-Mistofelees is a milkman, but also the person who gathers rations for the group. Rum Tum Tugger swears he’s magical, and tells stories about it to entertain the kids, but the adults have no idea if he's just making them up or not.

Some sleepy cats!
You have Misto in the magic box with Tantomile and Coricopat
Some Old Deut with Munkustrap, Tugger, and Macavity
Some Tugger being an absolutely terror to Misto
Some Bustopher Jones
Some Gus with Asparagus Jr, Jennyanydots, Jellylorum, and Skimbleshanks as kittens. (Skimble is wearing a hat)
And some Growltiger being very displeased about Raffish Misto’s presence.

Ah yes, Asparagus, Asparagus Jr, and Admetus. Three generations of terrible naming decisions together again.

Skimbleshanks: But I didn’t get rid of everything! Look! I made keepsake boxes for the kids! Tiny clothes! Tiny teeth! Tiny toys! Anything tiny, I kept it.
Jennyanydots:....Well I do like tiny things.
Skimbleshanks: I know you do honey.
Asparagus Jr: *cracks up*
Skimbleshanks: Shut up Jr!

Gus: Deut, your kids can’t eat top ramen for the rest of their lives.
Old Deut: I can’t cook anything else. What would you prefer? My kids eat nothing but cold cereal like Asparagus Jr. did?
Jennyanydots:...Okay, I think both of you shouldn’t be cooking for your children.

Jellylorum: *Holding baby Pouncival* Sweetheart! What were you thinking!? You could have broken your neck jumping that high.
Asparagus Jr: Jelly, relax. We have like five kittens. If he does break his neck we have spares.

Okay, so you know how Asparagus Jr. is gone during Gus’ song? Now, I know its because he played the vision of Fireforfiddle. But I was thinking of an in universe explanation and-
What if everyone in the tribe thought that tonight was the night Gus would be chosen. That he was getting so old and so sickly that there was no way it wouldn’t be him. And what if, Asparagus Jr. was in denial about this. He didn’t want to hear Jellylorum help Gus step by step through his final performance. He didn't want to see Gus suddenly break down at the very end. Because if he does, he’ll be reminded that he’d be loosing his father soon.

Young Gus: These ‘No smoking with a child in the car’ rules are so stupid. I mean, you should have seen the little guy. He was freezing his little ass off outside while I was smoking in the car.
Deuteronomy: You made Asparagus Jr. stand outside while you smoked?
Young Gus: Well yeah, its the law. Were you not listening?

(This is a part two)
Old Deuteronomy: I can’t believe it...
Skimbleshanks: They’re adults Deut. You can’t be surprised they know already know about sex.
Old Deuteronomy: I feel like I failed as a parent. I was intending on talking with them earlier. Things just kept coming up.
Asparagus Jr.: What exactly was ‘coming’? Tugger?

A sit-com but it’s literally just Jennyanydots and Skimbleshank’s parenting compared to Jellylorum and Aspargus Jr.’s parenting. And they all get together and gossip on the weekends.

Jennyanydots: Skimble! The kittens are awake!
Skimble: Sweet little angels, they could hardly wait.
Jellylorum: They’re awake...
Asparagus Jr.: What...? Its three in the morning, dad hasn’t even put the gifts out yet!
*crashing in the distance*
Asparagus Jr.: Oh god, Pouncival must’ve gotten loose.
Jellylorum: YOU DID THIS TO ME!

Asparagus Jr.: Yeah, honestly, you’re a real fucking nightmare sometimes.

Okay okay! So we all know the head canon that George/Admetus is the son of Asparagus Jr. and Jellylorum right? (at least in the 1998 version)
This would make him Gus’ grandson. Imagine like, George/Admetus as a little kitten really really being into Growltiger because he got to see granddad play him once. So, he gathered up the other kittens one day and decided they were going to put on a play of Growltiger. Jellylorum and Jennyanydots thought it was adorable so they made costumes for everyone, then on Gus’ birthday the kittens all got together and put on their play for him. Despite the god awful singing Gus was brought to tears by his grandson loving theatre just as much as he did.
As an added bonus, Munkustrap remembered the kiddie play for all eternity and let George/Admetus play the great rumpus cat.

Okay, like, the Oldies but they all sleep in one bed like the grandparents in Charlie and the Chocolate factory. Like, Asparagus Jr. and Jellylorum sleeping one way and Skimbleshanks and Jennyanydots sleeping the other.
