Storyline

Retired madame 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 KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Marie hops up onto the piano, the lowest keys are hit, but the sounds come from keys in a much higher register. The same thing happens when Berlioz slides down the keyboard to get back at Marie for pulling him off the bench; the keys sound much higher than they should. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Snoop Dogg loves The Aristocats
22 September 2000 | by Mario RodgersSee all my reviews

No. I'm not kidding with this one. He was a guest reviewer for Entertainment Weekly and gave this movie positive marks. And who can blame him? This is a charming, upbeat, and rather funny Disney movie. Who doesn't love kittens? The music in Ev'rybody Wants To Be A Cat is jamming. It makes me want to snap my fingers or something. Only years later when Cats Don't Dance came out have I seen a movie that was that musically fun. What Aristocats lacks in animation and story, it makes up for in charm. Plus, everything moves at a relaxed pace, and even the villain isn't all that scary. It's perfect for the younger set while not being so sappy that adults can't like it. If Snoop was here, I'm sure he would say the same thing. Yeah. Dig those CRAZY cats, man.
