Did You Know?

During character development, all of the film's characters had to be approved by Warner Bros. The goal was for the characters to look similar to those from other Hanna Barbera works. Ánima Estudios created newcomers, not featured in the series, such as Trixie, Lou Strickland (a.k.a. Lucas Buenrostro), the army of robots, etc.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The spiked armband on the muscle dog (Don Gato/Top Cat's cell mate) constantly changes from his left arm to his right in every instance he's seen in the movie.See more »
Top Cat:They call me T.C. It's short for "Top Cat".
Trixie:Oh, that's very clever. I'm Trixie, which is short for...
Top Cat:[interrupts] The future Mrs. Top Cat?
Trixie:[chuckles] You're funny, too. Too bad I have to go to work and too bad I don't take anyone from the alley.
Top Cat:Oh, I wasn't joking. I think you have stolen my heart. I'm usually the one who does the taking around here.
Trixie:[gasp] Is that why he's so upset?
Top Cat:[pulls out a bag of bird seed, throws it on Griswald, calls out for birds]
Top Cat:Now, where were we?

Let's be fair..., 18 November 2012
Author: Jon Abbott from United Kingdom

This film did not quite make the grade, as remakes or reboots of much loved originals rarely do, but I have been quite taken aback by the harshness of some of the reviews, which rightly point out the problems but fail to mention what worked. Having seen what's been done to other classic TV shows by Hollywood, I think it's fair to say that what works in this film is only there because the property was farmed out to people keen to make it, rather than interfered with by sticky fingered money men and ass-covering executives.

Unlike many of the other reviewers, who seem to be speaking for entire crowds of people ranging from their entire families, to kids, to all fans everywhere, I will simply speak for myself, a Hanna-Barbera fanboy since Huckleberry Hound.

Yes, there are drawbacks, one avoidable and one not.

The one thing that spoils the film irretrievably is the bad guy, a terrible, horrible character completely out of tune with the spirit of the series, and a major misjudgement. The other problem is that the guys who did the original voices are no longer with us. There's nothing anyone can do about that.

But whatever it's failings, this film is clearly a labour of love by people who love and respect the original series, the style of which belongs to its time, and has by happy chance, proved to be timeless. The endless array of in-jokes were a delight--Laslo Laslo, Arabella, Gus, the Maharajah of Pookajee, the rich lady, Queen for a Day, Griswold, and loads of walk-throughs including A.T. Jazz and his buddy in the pool hall... this was not some careless throwaway deal as some have suggested.

Ever since Star Trek the Motionless Picture in 1979, film-makers have been taking our memories of classic TV shows and trampling all over them, worst offenders being The Avengers (U.K.) and Lost in Space, trashing the concepts and characters, and quite clearly not caring about the originals in any way, shape or form, just cashing in on the good will and name value. It was a pleasure to see a film that, even if they got the Big Picture wrong, respected and acknowledged the source material and the original audience, even to the point of retaining the original music. It's also worth noting that the Don Gato movie had different voice overs. And finally, a New York that has people and cars in it!!

So yes, Top Cat the movie could have done with a couple of rewrites before it went before the cameras, and a bit of tightening up. Let's remember that the Hollywood live action Flintstones went through 38 writers (as opposed to the three guys who wrote all the hundred-plus episodes they were drawing from) and still came up with a lousy bad guy and a dull, over-complicated and uninteresting plot.

I thought this was an interesting failure and a brave try. I can't shake the feeling that if this had been made in L.A. some idiot would have been telling us how dark and gritty they were going to make it, Top Cat would have been a callous rapper dealing drugs, and the film would have opened with the drive-by shooting of Officer Dibble...
