This film has been the center of controversy since its release, due to many allegations of animal abuse and cruelty during production. This included allegations that a number of kittens had been killed during filming due to dangerous filming conditions. Due to the film not being supervised by any animal advocacy groups during production, these reports cannot be confirmed. However, many have noted that the extreme and often dangerous conditions the animals were placed in (including footage of a cat falling off of a cliff) were likely due to the filmmakers intentionally putting the animals into these situations.

When Milo's kittens are born, there is one calico kitten that is clearly seen while they are indoors. When the cat family goes outside to meet Otis' family, all the kittens are orange and white, like a mixture of Milo and Joyce would actually be. See more »

I read once where it took the filmmakers four years to make this movie. I don't doubt it. It must have taken great patience to wait and train these animals to do some of these amazing scenes. Where have you ever seen a cat nursing on a pig or a dog hitching a ride on top of a sea turtle, etc.?
There are some incredible scenes involving a number of animals. The scenery here is pretty, too. All of the above means that adults should enjoy this as much as the kids. There is nothing offensive in this nothing....nothing.
Dudley Moore's storytelling narration is a bit annoying in the beginning but settles down and is just fine, even humorous in spots. Overall, he did a credible job. The movie is short but actually could have been better had it been trimmed another 10 minutes to about 80. If you love animals, you really have to check this film out. Even if don't, the footage is so unique it's worth a look.
