Top Cat Begins Coming to UK Theatres in May

7 March 2016 4:22 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Classic cartoon lovers rejoice! That fantastic feline superstar returns to UK movie screens in just a few weeks. As the Hoyt Curtin TV theme proclaims, “…but above everything, he’s the most tip top…Top Cat!”. Tc, as close friends call him, did indeed debut on American  TV screens on the then fledgling ABC network in September of 1961 (talk about your nine lives!). This show, along with “The Jetsons” and “Jonny Quest” was an attempt by animation studio Hanna-Barbera to replicate the prime time success of that “modern stone-age family “The Flintstones” just a year or so before. Unfortunately Tc was not the rating smash that Fred and company were, so only one season (30 half hour episodes) were produced. But the kitty con-artist and his pals endured as a Saturday morning staple,then a syndicated smash. As beloved as the show was in its native Us, “Top Cat” was an even bigger hit overseas, »

First Trailer And Poster For Top Cat Begins Slink Online

7 March 2016 1:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Top Cat, the most effectual, is the star of the show in the first trailer for Andres Couturier’s upcoming animated feature, Top Cat Begins.

A tip of the hat to the original 60s cartoon in more ways than one, Jason Harris (Rio 2) lends his vocal chords to the titular feline, headlining a crew of alley cats comprised of Fancy-Fancy, Spook, Choo-Choo, along with Brain and Benny. It is, at its core, an origins story to Hanna-Barbera’s beloved trickster, shedding light on how Harris’ Top Cat crossed paths with Benny before forming their famous gang of felines.

First released in Mexico late last year, Top Cat Begins is also a prequel to 2011 animated flick Top Cat: The Movie, though early reviews for Couturier’s cheeky feature weren’t too kind.

Top Cat Begins slinks into theaters in the UK come May 27, and we’ll keep you updated as »
