Disney’s 20th full-length animated feature "The Aristocats" arrives on crystal clear Blu-ray that deserves two paws up from this critic. Kind of a "101 Dalmatians" for the cat lover, "The Aristocats" takes place in Paris where an eccentric heiress leaves her entire estate to her hoity-toity cat Duchess (Eva Gabor) and her three kittens. But the goofy butler Edgar wants the estate for himself so he goes about arranging a cat-napping that is bungled when an alley cat named Thomas O’Malley (Phil Harris) and his "jazz cats" foil his plans. With songs by Disney legends Richard and Robert Sherman, "The Aristocats" is not one of the more popular Disney films, but it is well worth revisiting for its humor and classic style of animation. It looks colorful and bright on Blu-ray and its humor is pretty charming.
Packaged with a Blu-ray and DVD, there are a number of Special Features on both discs:
The Sherman Brothers: The Aristocats of Disney Songs - a tribute to the songwriting duo.
Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack
