A new TBBT lawsuit has fans shocked. Warner Brothers and Chuck Lorre both had charges brought against them involving the Soft Kitty lyrics. Copyright Infringement charges were at the center of the case. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true- here’s what happened.

Sheldon’s Soft Kitty song is a true Big Bang Theory hit. Real TBBT fans know the lyrics by heart. Sheldon learned the poem as a young child, and his mother would often sing it to him when he needed comfort. As fans know, Sheldon is a terrible patient when he’s sick. He’ll often demand his friends sing him this song to feel better.
Penny even caught on to the song and has demanded it herself. As the show went on the Soft Kitty joke grew, and now it is an iconic moment in TBBT history.

If you don’t know the lyrics yet, you better start memorizing:
Soft kitty, warm kitty
Little ball of fur
Happy kitty, sleepy kitty
Purr, purr, purr

Who would have thought that such an innocent song would bring the television show legal troubles? The lawsuit was filed by two daughters of a nursery school teacher. The daughters claim that their mother wrote the lyrics back in 1937.
However, the charges have been dismissed. A New York judge ruled that those accusing “have failed to establish that they own a valid copyright as necessary to state a copyright infringement claim.”

The TBBT writers probably had heard the song as a child. It’s hard to say when you first learn songs like this, and it’s even harder to pinpoint an exact source. Thankfully, the network and Chuck Lorre did not have to suffer any consequences.
