Storyline

A man is playing the bagpipes along a riverbank. Nearby, the offspring of Puss in Boots are playing tic-tac-toe. When the kittens fall in the water, the man throws in his bagpipes for the kittens to use as a flotation device. Puss in Boots pledges his loyalty to the man in thanks for saving his children. The king's men announce that an ogre has kidnapped the princess and the man who saves her will be awarded her hand in marriage. Puss vows to help the musician save the princess. The princess has been transformed into a bird and is locked in a cage in the ogre's den. When Puss and the man attempt to sneak in, the man is caught and he too is turned into a bird. Puss and his kittens soldier on and fight the ogre to save the transformed humans. Written by Melissa

A Very Familiar Storyline
20 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

See if this doesn't sound familiar: A proclamation if offered, stating "Whosoever saves the princess from the nasty ogre, he shall marry her. Signed, The King."

Our hero - some human, not Puss or the smaller cats - of course wants to be that guy. We discover the ogre, through some magic liquid he sprays on people, has turned the princess into a small white bird, which he keep caged at home (like Tweety). The Ogre, meanwhile, looks just like you'd picture: hairy, ape-like, a mouth of half-missing teeth and big muscles. He grunts a lot, too.

A neat twist is what happens to the guy coming to rescue the princess, and then what happens to all three major characters when the felines come to the rescue. There are some odd scenes, such as the cats all jumping into the ogre's pants and scratching tic-tac-toe games on his butt! I'm serious.

The only thing that was kind of stupid was what the Ogre allowed to happen to himself. That made no sense and hurt the story.....not that it was believable, to begin with, but it wasn't stupid until that part.
