The story of two animals and their adventures. Milo, the cat, and Otis, the dog, are two animals who grew up together on the same farm. One day, the two are separated and begin a journey to find each other. The adventurous, and often perilous quest finds the two animals traveling across mountains, plains, and snow-covered lands searching for one another. Written by
The original Japanese title, 'Koneko Monogatari' literally means 'A Kitten's Story'. See more »
A young, small and scrawny raccoon waits on the riverbank for Milo to catch a fish with his tail. When Milo catches the fish and drags it ashore, the raccoon is suddenly a full-sized adult, clearly twice the size of the raccoon in the previous shot. See more »

I read once where it took the filmmakers four years to make this movie. I don't doubt it. It must have taken great patience to wait and train these animals to do some of these amazing scenes. Where have you ever seen a cat nursing on a pig or a dog hitching a ride on top of a sea turtle, etc.?
There are some incredible scenes involving a number of animals. The scenery here is pretty, too. All of the above means that adults should enjoy this as much as the kids. There is nothing offensive in this nothing....nothing.
Dudley Moore's storytelling narration is a bit annoying in the beginning but settles down and is just fine, even humorous in spots. Overall, he did a credible job. The movie is short but actually could have been better had it been trimmed another 10 minutes to about 80. If you love animals, you really have to check this film out. Even if don't, the footage is so unique it's worth a look.
