      Movie Info

      A UFO captained by a cat-like extraterrestrial (Ronnie Schell) is intercepted by the U.S. Military. The spacecraft's feline pilot, who goes by the human name Jake, reveals to his captors that he must locate a substance called "Org 12" to restore his battered spacecraft and reunite with his mothership. With help from scientist Frank Wilson (Ken Berry), Jake figures out the Earth equivalent of Org 12 -- gold -- and then activates his collar's technological capabilities to help retrieve it.

        A cat from space needs help getting home? This is one of the many cat movies from Disney, but it' not the best, in fact it may be the worst. Some kids may find it fun, but it's way too silly and stupid, so I'm not sure about that.

        Still think this is a decent movie. Good ol Disney provides a movie about a talking, telekinetic Cat from outerspace? Cute and kinda funny, kids should still like this movie today. I sure did when i was little.

        A straight-forward Disney movie made during the science fiction craze of "Star Wars". I guess they were still doing the effects for "The Black Hole" so quickly threw this one out to try and catch the kids in the hype. It has a very plain story about the military securing a flying saucer, and a cat who needs help from humans to get back to his home planet. Hey! It sorta sounds like E.T.'s plot four years later. There's an interesting game of pool where the cat helps them win with his hi-tech glowing collar. I didn't care for the human characters much, as they were all goofy unlikeable adults. There weren't any kids to identify with in this movie; just the cute little kitty cat, which kind of reminded me of "That Darn Cat!" and Morris from the "9 Lives" cat food ads.
