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 madame 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 Duchess and the kittens are drinking the cream in the beginning of the movie, each bowl has a colored ring around it that matches the color of the bows/ties/collar of the cat drinking it. See more »
When Toulouse is painting, he steps on the tube of blue paint and we see it squirt out and land on the floor next to Berlioz. Once Toulose has finished the painting, the paint on the floor appears red instead of blue. See more »
That's quite a family. Come to think of it, O'Malley, you're not a cat, you're a rat. Right? Right.

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 UK VHS version of The Aristocats, the opening song "THE ARISTOCATS" by Maurice Chevalier is sung half in English and half in French, differently from the soundtrack. 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.
