One of the weaker efforts from the Disney studios, this involves a group of upper-class cats, who are kidnapped and taken to the countryside by their mean butler. So, the mother cat (voiced by Eva Gabor) and her three kittens attempt to make a journey back to their loving master, with the help of a knowledgeable roadside cat (Phil Harris).

I'd say this is for die-hard Disney fans only. This film was made at a time when the cartoonists at Disney started cutting corners in the production of their pictures. The animation in particular is dull, flat and practically one-dimensional (compared to the brilliant three-dimensional feel of the 1940's and 1950's, and the more recent films of the 80's and 90's). The characters are hardly memorable, as are the lifeless songs, which seem to copy music from previous efforts from Disney. It would take almost twenty years for the company to get back on track in the Animation department. I think it's fair to say that, although admittedly there were a few gems, you should stay away from most Disney efforts made between 1967 and 1989. That includes their dull children's fare, such as this one.
