Product Details

Product Description


Cats Don't Dance is typical fare: a dancing cat who wants to be a Hollywood star circa 1939. Of course, animals only play animal roles in the movies, but our hero Danny (a cat) won't accept that as an answer. Plenty of big laughs for adults here, but there are also some wonderful characters including the bratty baby starlet Darla Dimple (Shirley Temple meets Baby Herman) and her Schwarzenegger-type bodyguard Max. There's also a jittery hippo, a cute penguin, and a keen elephant who helps Danny fulfill his dream and land the girl--err, cat. Randy Newman's songs are just as inspired as the film: a pleasant, kid-friendly picture with lots to satisfy the older crowd as well. --Doug Thomas

Product Description

The rags-to-riches story of Danny, a talented cat whose lifelong goal of movie stardom is sidetracked when he discovers only humans get the good roles in Hollywood. On the big screen, animals can bark, meow or moo, but cats don't dance. Danny vows to break through the "species barrier" and prove that dreams really can come true.

4.0 out of 5 stars And how does the kitty cat go? July 8 2004
Well, it's been a while since I've seen a musical cartoon not produced by Disney. The movie is about a small town cat who moves to Hollywood to try and become a star, but in Hollywood animals are not considered good enough to be actors. It's good for all ages and the music is great too. I would recommend buying the soundtrack as well.
And in my opinion I really see nothing wrong with this movie...but it doesn't leave you in awe or anything so it gets 4 out 5 stars from me. : )

5.0 out of 5 stars An under-rated gem! Feb. 28 2004
The music is livelier than Disney has had in years, the animation is crisp, clean, and a treat for the eyes. Randy Newman really shows that cats can dance, sing, and make you feel good. The animated cameos of golden age film stars (WC Fields, Mae West, Clark Gable), are iceing on a most delicious cake.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic in its own right.... Jan. 25 2004
As far as Animated Musicals go, the songs in this could rival anything from Disney(Well, Randy Newman has done many things for Disney as well, so it makes perfect sense). The animation is colorful and splashy and the main theme/story is inventive. Not something to common in animated films these days.
The story follows Danny, a cat from Kokomo who has big dreams, dreams of becoming a HUGE story in Hollywood. He's even made a checklist, which includes getting a lead role by the end of the week. But Danny's dreams are cut down-to-size when he is cast in a movie with movie star Darla Dimples(A Shirley Temple-like star), a cute looking girl with a short temper and intense hatred for animals. He soon finds out that animals have no place in Hollywood, except as playing stereotypical roles. Every single other animal he meets has some sort of dreams for making it big, but they've all been crushed in one way or another.
The thing I find so special about "Cats Don't Dance" is that, I really enjoyed it when I was 11yrs. Now I just thought it was a fun cartoon with some great tunes. But now that I'm older I see that the themes in this film parallel that of many ethnic actors trying to break into Hollywood, I guess, particularly blacks.
Cats Don't Dance, isn't for younger children, because well, it wont hold their attention span the whole time(Tried it with my 4yr nephew), even though there is a lot of slap-stick humor that kids love so much. I guess it all depends on the child. :D
If you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary, with some creative ideas, fun characters, great songs, fun animation, and an interesting and intelligent storyline that can appeal to children and adults alike, then I suggest "Cats Don't Dance".
*Enjoy* & God Bless ~Amy

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This for Yourself Nov. 30 2003
I've been waiting for five years for this to come out on DVD because I know if I buy it on VHS I'll just have to buy more copies after I wear the first one out. This is one of the best animated movies of all times. It's an adorable cartoon without the saccharine overdose that many of them have. The hero is the adorable Danny, who dreams of becoming a movie star. The backup cast is just as enchanting, and are a little more jaded than the average cartoon character. The pacing is almost like speed, and it will sweep you up and hold you until the very end. If you want something deep, buy The Lion King. If you want something fun that will make you feel good, buy Cats Don't Dance. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cats Don't Dance: how ironic! Feb. 6 2003
The cats in this film actually DO dance-quite well! Especially since all the "choregraphy" was done by Gene Kelly (who was totally for the idea). This may be one of those cartoons that has a lot of humor only adults would get. I thought it was great how the included 30's actors, like Mae West, Cary Grant and Clark Gable. The lines were great!
My favorite character was Sawyer, the cat who Danny showed her talents. "So much for preservin' the species," she says. The film's songs are overall great. My favorites are Tell me Lies, Hollwood, and Animal Jam. The only part of the latter one that I like is the dancing sequence performed by Danny and Sawyer.
Bottom line: SEE IT!!
