Storyline

Ambrose the kitten renames himself Butch and runs away from home with plans to become a robber. His first intended victim, though, is a real robber: Dirty Bill, a dog. Dirty Bill asks Ambrose/Butch if he's pulled off any big jobs, and he tells of the stagecoach robbery we saw him enacting with dolls and toys at the beginning of the movie, without, of course, mentioning that it was all playacting. Bill asks him about the loot, and Butch brings out a bag of cookies. Bill won't accept that answer, and comes after Ambrose, scaring him right into the bath he earlier avoided.

Always has been one of my favourites
22 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of Disney Silly Symphonies in general, it is hard to single out favourites(though Skeleton Dance, The Old Mill and Flowers and Trees are certainly up there) but The Robber Kitten is definitely one. Once or twice Ambrose/Butch's voice can get a little too cutesy for my tastes especially in the final scene, but that is something so minor because everything that is so good about The Robber Kitten overshadows that one small debit. The animation is smooth and colourful with some good detail in the backgrounds, and the music particularly Dirty Bill's song is very catchy. The story has a quite cute feel with Butch's fabrication about his stagecoach robbery, but also deals with some mature themes also, Dirty Bill turning nasty is quite scary. What is also great about The Robber Kitten is the attention to the characters, Butch is one of those characters that a child can see within them and is cute but not really overly so(apart from a couple of instances), his toughing up act and looking up to Dirty Bill as a hero, who for me is one of the Silly Symphonies' better "villains", is the main reason why Dirty Bill turning nasty is as scary as it is. In conclusion, was one of my favourites and still is. 10/10 Bethany Cox
