Storyline

A kitten is adopted by a maternal eagle, who teaches the young cat to fly- by using his tail as a spinning propeller. Upon reaching the age to venture into the world on his own, the flying cat uses his extraordinary ability to save an attractive girl cat from a bulldog. These two cats mate and beget a family of flying felines, all of whom fly south with their father each winter and return north in the spring to rejoin their mother.

The Cat Who Thought He Was A Bird
10 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most of this cartoon is told in flashback. It's a goofy premise (hey, it's a cartoon) about a cat who was raised by a big momma bald eagle. He uses his tail as a propeller and learns how to fly. Like all birds, one day it's time to fly the coop and go out in the world on his own.

Soon after he saves a female cat from a big Spike-like bulldog, the kind is always shown in cartoons, it seems. He wins her heart with his flying ability and gives the big dog a "shave" from above as well as a few other things to the big - and humorous - canine.

There is some really nice artwork in here with excellent colors.

The two best-known voices in cartoon history - Mel Blance and Daws Butler - are listed on the IMDb title page but it doesn't say who the narrator is, and he did 99 percent of the talking here.
