A cute, feline version of "Lady and the Tramp" that should enthrall families . . . and, of course, cat lovers.

The animals' exuberance is so infectious and their "acting" so true to human life that by the fadeout The Aristocats does, indeed, give the audience paws for reflection.

Helped immeasurably by the voices of Phil Harris, Eva Gabor, Sterling Holloway, Scatman Crothers and others, plus some outstanding animation, songs, sentiment, some excellent dialog and even a touch of psychedelia.

A nice-enough Disney feature that some consider an under-appreciated classic and others view as a movie that's distinguished only by the inclusion of a handful of cool jazz tunes.
Full Review | Original Score: 75/100

The Aristocats is largely an up-scale cat version of 101 Dalmatians minus the deliciously dastardly villain.

Proves that even the studio's halfhearted larks still have life in them, thanks to golden-age animators...tunesmiths...and vocal talent.

The real beauty of the picture, which is as amusing, smoothly machined and beautifully colored as any Disney should be, is in the characterizations, sustained within a sprightly but simple format.

It's a happy, all singing, very cute and well told tale that will keep the kiddies enthralled while lightening a few older hearts.

Before the disastrous Aughts, was there a worse decade for Disney animated features than the 1970s?
