The Marble League logo

The Crazy Cat's Eyes are a Marble League team not best known for their appearance in the Marble League, but for being the models for the Marble League logo. The team were personally requested by Pim Leurs, the designer of the logo. The team went for a photo shoot and were joined by a black cat's eye marble. They even got to meet Jelle Bakker while there.

Red Eye, Blue Eye, Yellow Eye, Green Eye, and Cyan Eye, all come from the North African city of Felynia, located between two rivers, known for its prestige in film and entertainment. The sand dunes to the east are nicknamed the "Cat's Dunes" after Crazy Cat's Eye, a Marble Rally athlete who trains there alone as no fan would be crazy enough to travel as far into the desert as him. The team were inspired by him, but are not affiliated with him.

In 2015, Felynia chose marbles from different districts of the city and put them together in a team, so the five didn't know each other previously. Their coach, White Eye, was also chosen at this time. They were submitted and accepted into the 2015 Knikkegen Marble League, which had received an influx of international applications. The Crazy Cat's Eyes' strengths were events focusing on accuracy rather than speed. White Eye made sure to train them in the two ancient Felyni traditions of stealth and speed. The team finished the competition in eleventh.

Over the next two years, the Crazy Cat's Eyes continued to train in order to improve their skills. Suddenly, they were invited to take part in the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers. Seeded in Group A, the team debuted with a third place finish in Curling, where Blue Eye stopped right on the button, showcasing the team's accuracy. Another third place finish in 5 Meter Ice Dash, as well as fifth place finishes in the other two events, put the team in the exact qualifying threshold for Marble League 2018 in 4th of their group.

The Crazy Cat's Eyes started Marble League 2018 with an eleventh place finish in 5 Meter Ice Dash. However, in Event 2, the Ski Jump, Yellow Eye won the team their first medal, a bronze, putting them into 5th overall. Unfortunately, the team faltered in the next event, Halfpipe, finishing in fifteenth. They fell to 10th overall. The team regrouped and made amendments, leading to sixth place finishes in the next three events, and they were 8th overall at the halfway mark.

From this point on, the Crazy Cat's Eyes began to lose their momentum. Red Eye underperformed in Event 7, Snow Rally, and his thirteenth place finish put the team into 11th overall. After two mediocre finishes, the team finally got to their next breakthrough in Event 10, Biathlon, an event that tested speed, handoffs and accuracy. They finished with a time of 25.53, breaking the Marble League record and winning a gold medal. The team entered the final event with the potential to win the League, although it was very unlikely as they were in 10th. Unfortunately, they came in last and finished their first season in 10th overall.

The Crazy Cat's Eyes' poor finishes continued into the offseason. Red Eye failed to finish in the 100 Meter Water Race, and the team came last in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. The team started to doubt about their performances, especially because of their poor second half in Marble League 2018. In fact, they never expected themselves to qualify for Marble League 2019, neither did the marblebase.

That doubt evaporated with the Crazy Cat's Eyes finishing first in the first event of the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, Funnel Race. Green Eye managed to stay in the funnels for 20 seconds more than Mocha of the Chocolatiers in her heat. Undaunted by their last place finish in the next event, Block Pushing, the team proceeded to perform well in the next two events, including a third place finish for Blue Eye in the final event, Underwater Race. The team qualified for Marble League 2019 in third overall.

The Crazy Cat's Eyes had a mediocre start to Marble League 2019. Blue Eye failed to replicate her success from the Qualifiers in Event 1, Underwater Race, finishing ninth. Coach White Eye decided to put Yellow Eye in Event 2, Funnel Race, instead of Green Eye, who was training for 5 Meter Sprint. Unfortunately, Yellow Eye couldn't replicate his teammate's success from the Qualifiers and came 14th, and the team dropped to 12th overall.

The Crazy Cat's Eyes turned their fortunes around by medalling in the next three events. Their first medal, a bronze, came in Balancing, an accuracy-based event. They broke the Marble League record, only to have it broken shortly afterwards by two other teams. The next event was Gravitrax Slalom, the team's preferred track to train on. They came first, winning only their second Marble League gold medal so far. In the next event, 5 Meter Sprint, coach White Eye's strategy paid off when Green Eye came third. This run of medals lifted the team into 4th overall.

The Crazy Cat's Eyes continued the League with some middle of the pack finishes, which was enough to keep them hovering around 5th and 6th overall. Then came Event 13, Elimination Race. Red Eye was chosen to take part, and managed to get into the final after finishing first in the second round of his heat. Red Eye continued to keep his momentum throughout the final until the final three, where he crashed early. This earned him his first ever individual medal, a bronze, and the team jumped back to 5th overall.

Unfortunately, the Crazy Cat's Eyes started to lose sight of the competition. Red Eye was already tired from his performance in the previous event, causing him to finish last in Event 14, Surfing. This was followed by two bottom four finishes in the final two events. The Crazy Cat's Eyes ended Marble League 2019 in 11th overall, which was a huge disappointment for the team. The fans were even more disappointed, especially with their performance in Sand Rally, since they come from the desert and Crazy Cat's Eye is so good on the sand.

Ever since the end of Marble League 2019, the Crazy Cat's Eyes were rarely seen at the their training sessions during the offseason. Rumors started to spread that they had gone out to the Cat's Dunes to train, leading to an assumption that the team would be likely to participate in Marbula One. However, they declined the invite, insisting that they would rather save their energy for the upcoming Marble League 2020 Qualifiers.[2]
