New to the forums and I'm trying to make this little 8-bit cat walk across the screen and when he gets there to flip 180 degrees and walk back.  Haven't quite been able to figure out the proper way.  Now I just have a moon-walking cat lol

Welcome to the GreenSock forums!


Thanks for the demo.


The trick here is to invert the scaleX value on each repeat: 

var scale = 1;

function flip(){
    TweenLite.set('.cat-chased',  {
        scaleX: scale *= -1

Your flip() function wasn't being called because it was set to onComplete. Your tween that moved the cat horizontally was set to repeat infinitely (repeat:-1) so technically it would never complete. onRepeat fires after each iteration of the tween is done.
