Synopsis


Cats Don't Dance
This animated comedy for the family, which gently parodies the movie musicals of the '30s and '40s, follows Danny (voice of Scott Bakula), a cat from Kokomo, Indiana, who loves to sing and dance and longs to be in show business. One day, Danny decides to do something about his ambitions instead of just wishing, so he heads for Hollywood, convinced that he can become a star in a week. However, Danny quickly becomes aware of the species barrier in Tinseltown; the studios don't much care for animals, even ones with star quality, and the best Danny's agent can get for him is a tiny role in a movie with adorable child star Darla Dimple (voice of Ashley Peldon), who turns out to be a mean-spirited brat who loathes animals as soon as the camera is turned off. Danny soon makes the acquaintance of several other animal performers stuck in the same bind as himself, including Sawyer (voice of Jasmine Guy), a pretty but cynical cat; Woolie (voice of John Rhys-Davies), a piano-playing elephant; Tillie (voice of Kathy Najimy), a singing hippo; and Pudge (voice of Mathew Herried), a performing penguin. Together, the critters struggle for acceptance and a chance to show the world what they can do. Sawyer's singing voice for the musical numbers was provided by Natalie Cole; Randy Newman wrote several original songs for the film, and Gene Kelly was a consultant for the character's choreography. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    A Fantastic Hidden Gem

    Beautifully animated and full of wonderful music, I've loved Cat's Don't Dance for a long time. I've always only seen it on television and finally found and bought the DVD. It doesn't come with many extras but the movie itself is wonderful and the story of keep pushing forward is always endearing. The basic plot is Danny, a cat from Indiana, goes to Hollywood (in its Golden Age) to make it big. Unbeknownst to him, Hollywood is less interested in animal actors and more interested in adorable, child actors (cue the villain Darla Dimple: a mean-spirited, rotten, and selfish child star who doesn't want anyone to take her spotlight). There's a lot of song and dance numbers with intense color that is sure to delight little ones (and older ones too!).
