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

Pusses, actually...
9 February 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a nice looking but rather dull cartoon from Ub Iwerks. It begins poorly--with some saccharine singing. Then the story begins. It seems that an evil ogre has captured the princess and a young man and his four cats go in search of her. However, they don't realize that the ogre has a magic liquid and he turned her into a bird...and he soon does the same to the young man. So, it is up to the four cats to come to the rescue.

The biggest problem with this cartoon is that it isn't funny. The film retells a fairy tale but in a manner that does little to impress the viewer and get them to want more. Inspid and not one of Iwerks' better films despite it being in color and with nice animation.
