With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
Retired opera star Adelaide Bonfamille enjoys the good life in her Paris villa with even classier cat Duchess and three kittens: pianist Berlioz, painter Toulouse and sanctimonious Marie. When loyal butler Edgar overhears her will leaves everything to the cats until their death, he drugs and kidnaps them. However retired army dogs make his sidecar capsize on the country. Crafty stray cat Thomas O'Malley takes them under his wing back to Paris. Edgar tries to cover his tracks and catch them at return, but more animals turn on him, from the cart horse Frou-Frou to the tame mouse Roquefort and O'Malley's jazz friends.Written by
When Duchess and the kittens are drinking the cream in the beginning of the movie, each bowl has a colored ring around it that matches the color of the bows/ties/collar of the cat drinking it. See more »
In the beginning credits, they show that the song She Never Felt Alone by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman is in the movie - but the song never played in the film. The first part was supposed to be played before the lawyer came into the bedroom that the will was created at by the old woman, and the second part was supposed to play when Duchess explaining to Thomas why she has to return to Paris.

Morning, Frou-Frou, my pretty steed.
Can you keep a secret?
Of course you can.
I've some news straight from the horse's mouth. If you'll pardon the expression, of course.

In the UK VHS version of The Aristocats, the opening song "THE ARISTOCATS" by Maurice Chevalier is sung half in English and half in French, differently from the soundtrack. See more »
The AristoCats follows a rich feline and her three kittens, after their elderly owner willed all of her belongings to the cats, her butler Edgar plots to get rid of the felines.
This movie is hilarious. The characters are loveable, the dialogue is great and there some fun slapstick action scenes.
The music is great! The song "Everybody Wants to be a Cat" will be stuck in your head for days!
The plot isn't very realistic (Is Disney ever "Realistic"?) But it's a lot if fun. The kids will definitely enjoy it!
The voice-acting is good too. You may recognize Sterling Holloway, known for voicing Winnie the Pooh and the Cheshire Cat. Here he lends his voice to the cats' mouse friend.
The AristoCats definitely deserves it's place among the Walt Disney Animated Studios canon.
