The animation is masterful and the overall design is appealing.

I kind of feel the same way about the Aristocats as I felt about Fun, Fancy and Free. Both felt very lazy and derivative of better films.

The Aristocats is in there with the good ones. It is light and pleasant and funny, the characterization is strong, and the voices of Phil Harris and Eva Gabor are charming in their absolute rightness.

The carefully painted Paris setting has the watery air of Ardizzone, while light and colour are used beautifully throughout.

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

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

Jazz and hijinks make this Disney cat tale meow.

Insofar as the film has any real ambition driving it, that ambition seems to be that the Disney brand name must be kept alive until somebody could figure out what to do with it.

An enjoyable mix of fine animation, catchy songs, and outstanding voice characterizations.

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.
November 4, 2009
One of the less successful Disney offerings from the beginning of the 70s.

This 1970 animated feature is dull, careless, and all too typical of the Disney studio's slapdash output before the unexpected renaissance of The Rescuers.

has a charm behind it that shines through

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.

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.
February 4, 2008
The Aristocats is one of the slightest of director Wolfgang Reitherman's contributions to the Disney animated feature canon, which is to say it's still among the studio's least suffocatingly ornate and ideologically risible films.

...not a bad film...just a middle-of-the-road one from a studio that has given us some true animated classics.
