Mr. Bigglesworth is the hairless pet cat of Douglas Powers in the Austin Powers movie series. He was originally a long-haired white Persian cat like the one constantly held by villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld of the James Bond series. Along with Dr. Evil, Mr. Bigglesworth was forced into a hasty escape in a cryogenic capsule. All of his hair had fallen out during the process rendering him permanently bald.
Mr. Bigglesworth is played by a champion purebred hairless Egyptian Sphynx cat named SGC Belfry Ted Nude-Gent, bred by Michelle Berge of Belfry Cattery. Ted Nude-Gent is also something of a cinematic pioneer, having been cast in a role more suitable for a dog due to the necessary training deemed impossible to do with a cat; Sphinxes are among the most easily trained of all cats and among the most sociable. Filming of the three Austin Powers films was delayed more than once because of Ted's particular fondness for Mike Myers, upon whose lap he would often be found sleeping.
Dr. Evil's miniature clone Mini-Me has a tiny version appropriately named "Mini Mr. Bigglesworth." Three Sphinx kittens named Mel Gibskin, Paul Nudeman and Skindiana Jones were cast in the role.
