Plot Summary

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 KGF Vissers

Trivia The Aristocats was inspired by the true story of a Parisian family of cats, circa 1910, that inherited a fabulous fortune. See more »
Goofs The character of Duchess is very different in the second scene (the will) than in the rest of the film. In particular she has her nose more clearly defined. The rest of the scene seems also to have been designed by different animators, who used a more "sketchy" style. See more »

Crazy Credits The opening title at first reads "The Aristocrats." As the three kittens go by, Toulouse notices the title, he removes the second r and pushes the letters together to form "The AristoCats." See more »
