50. May 3, 2010 - The Aristocats (1970)

Disney movies are great in that, for the most part, I can watch them over and over again. They make me smile more when I'm happy or cheer me up when I'm down. This was before being a "Disney voice" was a big thing, yet Eva Gabor and Scatman Crothers both voice important characters here. The scene where the kittens wake up abandoned by a stream in the French countryside is more disturbing than normal for Disney, but then Phil Harris-voiced Thomas O'Malley shows up and makes it all better. The film's jazzy song "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat" will get stuck in your head for days.

My first review is here.

  1. I remember seeing this movie for the first time last year and was startled by the quick flash of the Asian car and that Disney got away with that. This is minor Disney but, as you say, it's still a fun watch.
