The Aristocats

The Aristocats

(1970)is a Disney animated film by director Wolfgang Reitherman.

The plot of the movie is quite simple. The cats live in a Parisian mansion
owned by Madame Adelaide Bonfamille (voice of Hermione Baddeley).
The cats try to become sophisticated aristocrats like their owner, so
they study painting, piano, and singing. Madame Adelaide Bonfamille's

butler Edgar (voice of Roddy Maude-Roxey) thinks he will inherit
when the old woman dies, but then he comes to believe that she has
left everything to her cats, so he abducts the cats and takes them far
away where they can never be able to return.

Once far away in the country they are befriended by a smart alley cat
named Thomas O'Malley (voice of Phil Harris). They are also aided
by a host of other animals including, two redneck dogs named Lafayette
and Napoleon, two silly geese named Abigail Gabble and Amelia Gabble
and a sweet little mouse named Roquefort.

The film is a musical, but the numbers, while pleasant enough, are
not at all memorable. The dialog has few good lines and these
typically come from the sage O'Malley. He is down on humans as a
species reflecting, "Humans don't really worry too much about
their pets.

Puss In Boots

folk tales 300 years ago, including "Cinderella,"

nothing but the cat. This cat turns out to be quite clever and earns the
favor of the King for his master. The cat also obtains land and a castle
