Cats Don’t Dance (1991)

If you are a fan of the old Warner Brothers Bugs Bunny cartoons from the 60’s I believe you will thoroughly enjoy the 1991 production “Cat’s Don’t Dance”. This musical produced by Turner Entertainment and distributed by Warner Brothers Family Entertainment mixes music and mild slapstick humor to give a wonderful performance and unforgettable characters. The story is about a cat named Danny (voice of Scott Bakula) from Kokomo, Indiana, who makes his way to Hollywood in search of fame and fortune as a dancing movie star. While trying to make it big he runs into a cast of animals who are being used as background support for the star of the Mammoth Studios, Darla Dimple. The character of Darla Dimple (voice of Guiding Light child star Ashley Peldon) reminds one of Shirley Temple with a nefarious twist to her personality. Her assistant/henchman, Max is the larger than life thug  based off the character Max Von Mayerling from Sunset Boulevard. The animation is superb with plenty of quick move and freeze moments, hilarious expressions and comical buildups mixed in with a great arrangement of songs written by Randy Newman and choreography influenced by Gene Kelly. This lighthearted movie is a good view for the entire family.
