The Aristo Cats is a movie about four cats who belong to a rich lady in Paris set in 1910, one day the wake up a long way from home, out in the country! They need to get home so they take on the help of an alley cat, Thomas O'Mally, and two geese, Amelia and Abigal. When they get home there is another surprise waiting!
Costumes: 7, There aren't very many costumes because it is mostly about cats. But the few that are there are very nice.

Story: "The Aristocats" is based on a story by Tom McGowan and Tom Rowe.  I had no idea about this fact, I have been watching this movie since, well, pretty much since I was born and I only saw this fact the last time I watched it, if you could read the story first that would be great!
Fun Facts: This is the last animated film to be approved by Disney himself.
Questions: Why didn't Edgar wait? In one scene Edgar says, "Millions of dollars" but since it is in Paris, France, so shouldn't it be Euros?
Overall Score: 8
Quiz: What is Edgar's license plate number?

Thank you so much for reading!!



  1. I haven't seen this movie, but my younger siblings have and they love it!

  2. I love this movie, It would be interesting to read the book.

  3. There weren't any Euros at the time the movie was made, but you're right in principle: should be French currency, probably francs!

    1. My bad, well, also my sister's, she mentioned it. :-)
