    Synopsis


    Gay Purr-ee
    In the wake of the success of Disney's "101 Dalmatians," Warner Brothers has come up with a story about cats called "Gay Purr-ee." This song-filled adventure begins with Mewsette, a rural femme feline longing for the exciting life in Paris. She is kidnapped by some criminal cats. Things look bad until Jaune-Tom and his faithful friend Robespierre discover the crime and claw their way to Mewsette's side in hopes of rescuing the purloined pussy. Judy Garland does the voice of Mewsette, and sings eight songs by Yip Harburg and Harold Arlen. The most memorable is "Paris Is A Lonely Town." Robert Goulet is the voice of Jaune-Tom, with Red Buttons as Robespierre. Other voices are by the legendary Mel Blanc, Hermione Gingold, Paul Frees, Morey Amsterdam, Julie Bennett and Joan Gardner. The superior animation was supervised by Chuck Jones, with the screenplay by Jones and his wife Dorothy. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

      Judy Garland and Robert Goulet lend their voices to the main two cats, Mewsette and Jaune Tom, so this is filled with wonderful musical numbers. While not as famous as the Disney's Aristocats, I think it stands just as strong and should be in the home of everyone who loves a good classic cartoon with great animation and fantastic music. It depicts Paris beautifully in its plot of a poor country cat wanting to go to Paris and be rich. It even has a small segment in the middle honoring a few famous artists such as Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Georges Seurat, Henri Rousseau, Amedeo Modigliani, Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin and Pablo Picasso. Over-all it is well done and well worth adding to your cartoon collection either for yourself or for your children.
