The Aristocats (1970)



Reviews and Comments

One of Disney's poorest animated films, The Aristocats is plodding, cheaply made, and even somewhat dated. Phil Harris, who made a lovable Baloo, is less effective as alley cat Thomas O'Malley. There's a single memorable song, Everybody Wants To Be a Cat, and one of the better madcap chases that were required in Disney films from the late sixties through the early eighties -- but the rest is only mildly entertaining fluff. It's good for kids and Disney fanatics, but casual viewers should seek a better option.
