Bad Cats Pinball Machine *


Here’s one we don’t come across very often, Bad Cats!

Designed by Barry Oursler and released by Williams in 1989 this relatively low production game had a total run of only 2500 games ever made. Fantastic game play and considered by many as one of the best artistic masterpieces by famed pinball artist, Python Anghelo….there is so much going on, on this game to see.

Bad Cats is one of only 2 late 80’s Williams Pinball Machines that does not have multi-ball, but don’t look past that …as Bad Cats is a very entertaining game with pop bumpers, ramps, two drop target banks, spinning Seafood wheel and backbox animation with the lady hitting the spinning cat with her broom.  Bad Cats is purrrfect pinball fun!

Although this game was operated early on it has spent most of it’s life in home ownership which goes to show for it’s excellent condition.

CABINET: Original exterior cabinet has no fade, but has had a few scuff and scratches touched up with color matched acrylic paint. Coin door has been repainted, legs have been polished and brand new leg bolts and leg levelers installed.

BACKGLASS: Original silkscreened, mirrored backglass is original and in excellent condition with no lifting, flaking or peeling of any kind. Has just a couple small rub marks on the backside from the insert door latch rubbing up against it…quite typical for a Williams Pinball of this era.

PLAYFIELD: The playfield has been thoroughly shopped out meaning that all components (ramps, plastics, posts, etc.)  were removed from the top side of the playfield and cleaned. Entire playing surface has been cleaned and polished and new rubber rings have been installed throughout the playfield. All general illumination and feature bulbs have been upgraded with premium non-ghosting LED’s. These LED’s look much better over standard incandescent bulbs, last longer and consume less energy which is great for this games aging electronics. Playfield is protected by factory mylar and shows very little wear except for a few areas such as the inlane ramp return ball drops. This Bad Cats Pinball has a brand new plastic set installed as well as new target decals have been installed on the drop targets and Vari-Target.
