In a small Massachusetts town, two bumbling criminals mistakenly kidnap a maid, thinking her to be the wife of a prominent businessman. D.C., short for Darn Cat, is an alley cat who, while looking for his nightly snack, stumbles upon the kidnap victim, bound and gagged in a shed. The kidnap victim scratches a plea for help on the back of her wristwatch and puts it around the cat's neck. Patti finds the watch and links it to the missing maid. Playing amateur detective, she enlists the aid of an FBI agent, Zeke, who has been assigned to the case. Patti and Zeke follow D.C. through tight openings to track down the captive. Written by
Dean Jones acted in both "That Darn Cat" movies. In 1965's original, That Darn Cat! (1965) he had the top leading actor's role as FBI agent, Zeke Kelso. In the remake, That Darn Cat (1997) his acting was very short with character role, Mister Flint. See more »
The position of the two ropes keeping Patti tied up appear to change dramatically between shots. When Patti is first seen tied up the ropes appear to tightly intersect each other. The ropes seem to suddenly be inches apart vertically when Zeke shows up seconds later, only to go back to their original tight intersection when there is a close up of Patti right before she gets free.

I was 12 years old when I saw the original film (I lived in Italy and the Italian title was "FBI, OPERATION CAT!") That was a fun film and not just for kids. This awful remake it's pathetic even for a 5 year old! What possessed Disney to ruin their reputation and the memory of a lovely film I don't know and I just can't believe it. Even the title song in the original film (both original version and the dubbed Italian version) was extremely nice and creating the mood for the story. On this remake the title song is even worst than the movie itself. It was just nice to see Dean Jones even if for just a cameo appearance, he was a regular on the great old Disney's films. I cannot honestly see anything else positive in this remade movie.
