Originally there was meant to be a direct-to-video sequel titled AristoCats II. It was intended for a 2007 release, but production was canceled back in 2006 after John Lasseter became CEO of both Disney and Pixar. See more »
Frou-Frou (the horse) bites off the tails on Edgars tux after he puts the cats in the trunk and tries to push them outside to be shipped to Timbuktu. Then in the next scene the tails re-appear. See more »
At the end of the final reprise of "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat" Lafayette says, "Hey, Napoleon. That sounds like the end". Napoleon responds, "Wait a minute. I'm the leader, I'll say when it's the end". The title "The End" bumps into Napoleon's head and he says, "It's the end". The title then throbs to the music. During the final fade out we hear Toulouse say "Oh, yeah." See more »

Originally there was meant to be a direct-to-video sequel titled AristoCats II , it was intended for a 2007 release, but production got canceled back in 2006. The funny characters fascinating Visual Style and Humor in one of Disney's best of the 70s . This was the last animated feature to be approved by Walt Disney and the studio's first animated feature to be entirely completed after his death. It should be noted, however, that Disney had spent time working on the story for The rescuers (1977) , released seven years later , around the time Jungle Book (1967) entered production. This agreeable animation movie contains a lively and enjoyable musical score by George Bruns .
motion picture was well directed by Wolfgang Reitherman helped by Eric Larson , in fact this was the last film in which Larson worked as a supervising animator ; from then on he concentrated on training the younger animators that came to the studio during the seventies and eighties a good craftsman from Disney factory . Director Reitherman often animated fast action sequences or dances , and known for "re-using" animation from older films and placing them in newer films . He co-directed several Disney movies such as Aristocats , Jungle Book , 101 Dalmatians , Peter Pan , Cinderella , Dumbo , among others .
