With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
Retired opera star Adelaide Bonfamille enjoys the good life in her Paris villa with even classier cat Duchess and three kittens: pianist Berlioz, painter Toulouse and sanctimonious Marie. When loyal butler Edgar overhears her will leaves everything to the cats until their death, he drugs and kidnaps them. However retired army dogs make his sidecar capsize on the country. Crafty stray cat Thomas O'Malley takes them under his wing back to Paris. Edgar tries to cover his tracks and catch them at return, but more animals turn on him, from the cart horse Frou-Frou to the tame mouse Roquefort and O'Malley's jazz friends.Written by
When Edgar first hears that the cats were the primary inheritors, he begins to plot their demise. He imagines millions of dollars, with "$" signs dancing in his eyes. But since the movie was set in France, the money unit should have been francs. See more »
Marie, my little one, you're going to be as beautiful as your mother. Isn't she, Duchess?

The opening title at first reads "The Aristocrats." As the three kittens go by, Toulouse notices the title, he removes the second r and pushes the letters together to form "The AristoCats." See more »
In the Italian version, for dubbing reasons, while the two geese Abigail and Amelia kept their English accents, Thomas O'Malley was made Italian, called Romeo and spoke with a heavy Roman accent (he claimed to be from the Coliseum). See more »
> Kids will love this movie, just as they should. But, actually I thought it was cool! The characters and the music (ScatCat rocks) are fantastic to listen to, and the soundtrack is to be recommended.
An old lady makes her beloved cats the owner of her money, in her will. Her clumsy butler, Edgar, finds this idea very stupid and annoying. And a problem, since he was certain that the money would go to him. So, wise as he is, he decides to get the cats out of the picture, so he can get all the cash. Of course. He grabs them in a rainy night and throw them away in a swamp way outside the city in France.
Can't be missing in your Disney-collection.
