(6-Good Film)

Charming. Lovely. Minor.

An affluent, pampered family of cats are cast into nature by their ruthless, scheming butler who hopes to inherit his employer’s fortune after she passes. In his defense, it is ridiculous that she’s passing her wealth on to cats. Lost in the woods, they meet Thomas O’Malley, a cool cat and a stray who makes it his mission to see the family back home. Colorful, unique animation. Distinct characters (a couple of voice actors would go on to voice iconic Winnie the Pooh characters). Catchy songs inspired by jazz music (“Everybody wants to be a cat” is the standout). Holds up in adulthood much better than I expected.

  1. This movie was the first film that my son saw in a theater. His dad took him, and when they returned, my son couldn’t stop talking about the wonders of this movie. I think he was probably three or four years old, so it would have been 1980 or ’81. It’s good to know you still think it’s a good movie. I enjoy reading your reviews!
