What is a catchprase?

A catchphrase (or catch phrase) is a phrase or expression recognized by its repeated utterance.

Catchphrases have been associated with everyone from comedians, actors, politicians and TV presenters to cartoon characters.

Featured catch phrase lists



Catchphrases often originate in popular culture and in the arts, and typically spread through mass media (such as television and radio, movies, publishing, and video games), as well as word of mouth.

Some catch phrases become the de facto "trademark" or "signature" of the person or character with whom they originated.
