"I RODE THE KITTY 'ROUND NEW YORK CITY" mystery ringer tee

What's this Screen Stars vintage tee about? "I RODE THE KITTY 'ROUND NEW YORK CITY." This much I know: it pictures the World Trade Center, which was completed in 1973, and some sort of large - and possibly floating - feline such as a panther or tiger that says TNT on it. The Circle Line seems to have had no boats with a feline name or theme. Was it a TNT office party? A Circle Line boat? I haven't a clue! Do you? (Year/provenance/value). Thank you!

Date wise - because of the A on the tag - we know it's 1983+

But I can't dig up anything about the print - assuming it's a tourist boat ride of some sort.

Value - $50, but I would accept anything over $30.

Thanks Jimmy J! I found out more about it (hypothetically) - there was a high-speed TNT Hydroline ferry in NYC back in the day. (The cat perhaps symbolizing a catamaran?).
