Floyd: Merely I don't want to hurt him. I merely want to eat him. ha ha ha!
|~ Muriel and Floyd|
Muriel and Floyd are supporting antagonists of The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue. They are two stray cats who intend to eat the mice of NIMH, particularly Timothy Brisby.
Muriel and Floyd originally worked for Martin Brisby who has turned evil.
Muriel was voiced by Andrea Martin, and Floyd was voiced by the late Harvey Korman (who also played Hedley Lamarr).
Muriel & Floyd first appear while they were singing in the alley, only to be thrown trash by the neighbors. However, Dr. Valentine, who was hypnotized by Martin. lure the cats with cat food. Later, Floyd and Muriel were hypnotized and were turn into big cats. Later in the film, Timothy, who is Martin's bribe's little brother, comes to rescue him. However, Timothy was forced to guard and watch if anyone comes, only for Muriel and Floyd to capture them. Muriel would later take Jenny away. After Timothy was free by his sidekick, Muriel & Floyd later chased Tim to the elevator, as they would later be defeated with the help of Cecil. However, Muriel and Floyd survived the fall while they were on the elevator. They were last seen chasing Timmy to the elevator again, only to fall while the cats are still out of sight. This causes Floyd to tell Muriel, "I always love you, Muriel!", which Muriel responds with "Oh shut up, Floyd.", as Muriel and Floyd both fall to their presumed deaths, making them fall to the bottom of the building. It is unknown if they survived or not, but it could be implied they either.
