In the year 80 AMM (After Mickey Mouse) on planet X the crime-syndicated Cats try to erase the Mouse-population once and for all. A scientist of the mice, prof. Fushimishi seems to have found the weapon against the threat - so Intermouse calls it's best, but now retired agent - Nick Grabowsky - to get the plans. As a distraction for the Cats, they also send a second agent - Seargent Lazy Dick - for the mission.Written by
In spite of Russian version being completely dubbed, the songs were left in their original Hungarian version with brief voiceover translation of the first few lines. See more »
The relative sizes of the characters change greatly between scenes. For example, Grabovszky easily fits inside a glass bottle dropped from a plane by rats (who are the same size as the cat pilot in that scene), but when the rats fight Grabovzsky they are almost his size; the cat hijackers on the plane are not much bigger than mice, even though in most scenes the cats are huge compared to mice; when Miguel drinks blood from a female cat, he's about her size, even though vampire bats are the size of a mouse in most scenes; and so on.

The American version deletes references to every other passenger dying when the plane Lazy Dick (Billy Bugle in the dub) travels on crashes. See more »
Cat City was my first non-childrens cartoon. And I absolutely loved it. It was not a giant cornball cliche at all and it was funny as hell. The animation was super in that "A Wrinkle In Time" style and the story was terrific: The Evil Cats of Cat City hypnotize mice to service the evil deeds of the cats. Gumshoe, a Rat, is hired to stop them before it's too late.
My favorite part is at the end when the little fat patrol mouse is caught in the jungle with the bats. And, instead of them feasting on him for dinner (or whatever designated mealtime it should happen to be), he serenades them with a swinging trumpet solo, to which the Mexican bats contribute to. It is most excellent.
I highly recommend Macskafogo (aka. Cat City) for anyone looking for a good 'cartoonie' cartoon.
