Storyline

Lorenzo, an arrogant tomcat, lounges indolently on his soft and satin-covered cushion, while flaunting shamelessly his wealth and abundance as well as his dazzling bushy tail to the needy alley cats passing by. However, when a mysterious and tailless black stray cat notices Lorenzo, unexpectedly and as if by magic, the pampered feline will have to go through hell and back before learning a lesson in humility.

Disney got a little freaky on this one
5 August 2004 | by DontBeAfraidOfTheDorkSee all my reviews

I saw this short film before 'Raising Helen", and was quite surprised by it.

The animation combined with CG like movements from background to background is really good, but the storyline leaves something to be desired. An obnoxious cat, gets a spell put on his tail, by a odd mystical black cat, so it comes alive and starts to tango with him. And after a while i was starting to get a little freaked out by what all this cat was trying to do to his tail to make it stop. (running it over with a train, drowning it, electrocuting it, and ultimately wanting to take a knife to it) This cartoon is defiantly a different direction for Disney, and is not for everybody.
