Storyline

Cats is a pop-cultural phenomenon that has been performed on stage for more than 50 million patrons in 26 countries for almost 18 years, resulting in more than two billion dollars in ticket sales. Now that Cats has finally made it to the small screen, attention must be paid not just by fans of this critic-proof show, but also by those entertainment mavens who have somehow avoided it until now.

Goofs

During 'Old Deuteronomy', Mungojerrie can been see in the background lying in front of Rumpleteazer with his head on her lap. The film then cuts to a close up, in which Mungojerrie is now lying *behind* Rumpleteazer, propped up on one elbow. When the film goes back to a long shot, Mungojerrie is back to his original position. In some shots, Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer disappear entirely. See more »

Quotes

Rum Tum Tugger: You ought to ask Mr. Mistoffoles, the original conjuring cat. There can be no doubt about that. Please, listen to me and don't scoff. All his inventions are off his own bat.
