As a Travelers Insurance Agent we are happy to share their new TV commercial with you, our clients! J  Enjoy the show, and some interesting facts about the commercial that Travelers has shared with us…


Travelers’ new commercial “Cat Burglar” is the first in a series of four television commercials, starring the dog from “Prized Possession.”

Setting the Scene

In “Cat Burglar,” the dog is at home, waiting for the mail to be delivered, when a newspaper is delivered with a front page story – “Cat Burglar Strikes!”  The dog is so alarmed, he runs to his dog house to check on his possessions and continues to stand guard – in spite of opportunities to fetch a ball or go for a walk.  Finally, once he has the Travelers umbrella floating above his dog house, he can begin to romp and play again.
