Tribute to The Aristocats


This is an animated classic that I happen to have grown up on. I used to watch this when I was about three or four years old, and I can still remember all the characters as vividly as when I first watched this movie. You have to watch this, especially if you're a child of the '90's who grew up on Disney classics like The Little Mermaid, to understand the fundamental elements of an animated movie Disney style.

The main characters are Duchess and her three little children, Marie, Berlioz and Toulouse, all pet cats of a wealthy old woman in Paris who pampers them to no end. But all is not well when the butler happens to catch wind of his employer's plan to leave most of her wealth to her cats. He makes the cats disappear, banishing them to a place far outside of town in the rain. Not to fear though, as Thomas O'Malley, a street-wise alley cat shows up and helps them find their way back. The rest of the story involves them making their way back to Paris as they -- and we the audience -- encounter a host of eccentric characters who help them along in some way or the other. You've got to watch it.

This movie was first released way back in 1971, before I was born. Still though, I have to say that it's a cartoon-movie that I'll remember for as long as I can store a memory in this old noggin. Don't know if there's anything technically brilliant about this movie, but you have to check it out for the comedy and the music and songs that make up the soundtrack. The Aristocats is a treat for the whole family.
