Unjustly overlooked
16 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Puss in Boots (1969) is unjustly forgotten by animation fans. It's a charming and funny film, mixing the innocence and appeal of an early Disney fairy tale with madcap slapstick comedy. It's a good kind of old-fashioned, the sort of film which is no longer produced, here or in Japan.

While the human Rose and Pierre are a little one-dimensional, the titular puss in boots Pero is the star attraction. He's so likable and fun to watch; it's no surprise that Toei made him their mascot. The three cat assassins who chase after him and the villain of the piece, Lucifer, are magnificent adversaries.

I don't care if you think a movie from the late 1960s is "too old" for your enjoyment; watch this film! It's like being a kid again.
