One night, Tibbs is sleeping when he is awakened by the Captain with an urgent message from London. Tibbs and his friend Colonel learn about the fifteen missing Dalmatian Puppies. Tibbs recalls about remembering hearing puppies barking over at Hell Hall (the Old De Vil Place). He and the Colonel travel to the manor. Tibbs enters investigating the area and soon finds 99 Dalmatian puppies (the fifteen original puppies and eighty-four puppies other puppies that were bought from pet stores). Before Tibbs can save the puppies, Cruella De Vil's minions, Jasper and Horace, find the tabby cat (Jasper sees him first when he mistakenly grabs him instead of a bottle of wine) and begin to attack.
Thankfully, Tibbs escapes the Baduns. He reports the finding of the puppies to the Colonel, who sends the message back to London through the barking chain. Later on, Tibbs and the Colonel try to make contact with Pongo and Perdita, the parents of the missing fifteen pups, but to no avail. Out of nowhere, a car makes its way to the De Vil Place, resulting with Tibbs and the Colonel going to investigate yet again. This time around, Tibbs learns the diabolical plan of Cruella De Vil: to make dog-skin fur coats. Tibbs successfully sneaks the puppies out the main living room, but their disappearance is discovered by Jasper and Horace, and a chase follows. Tibbs and the puppies are soon cornered and nearly killed until Pongo and Perdita burst in and battle the Baduns.
Tibbs and the puppies escape with the Colonel back to the barn. There, Tibbs and the Colonel watch the happy reunion, but it all takes a turn for the worst when Jasper and Horace appear once again. The Dalmatians escape, leaving Tibbs, the Colonel and Captain to battle the Baduns. However, their battle leads to Jasper and Horace finding paw prints of the Dalmatians, continuing the chase.
Tibbs was a minor supporting character in the TV series. Here, he was voiced by Jeff Bennett.
In the video game 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue, Tibbs greets either Domino or Oddball in two levels. One of which is in the toy store, where he tells the player how to operate shooting devices and how to operate the train and elevator. He later appears in "Devil Manor," where he sabotages a clock to wake up Horace Badun. Domino/Oddball then lead Horace underneath a chandelier, where Tibbs causes it to drop on top of him.
In the game, Tibbs is voiced by Eddie Izzard.
