Took me back to younger days! Lol

Such a cute movie! Took me a bit to figure out the name, it's been 30 years or more since I saw it. All I could remember is a white female cat and Paris and a ice Male cat. Lol Ended up watching The Aristocats and realized quickly that wasn't the movie I was looking was cute though. Animation has come a ways, but I still enjoyed it.

A rare look at the talents of Judy Garland.

Judy Garland, Robert Goulet, and Red Buttons; what’s not to like? I saw this at the theatre before I was ten years old. It made such an impression on me then that this year I ordered it for my granddaughter. She loved it. It’s animation looks like an impressionist painting and there’s no CGI but it’s unique.

Shockingly bad
Verified purchase
To say that I expected more from this production is an understatement. Considering the talent involved, I could not believe the poor quality of animation or pathetic script. Clearly the cast wasn’t given much to work with. Skip this one. I could t even watch the whole thing because I respect Judy Garland too much. Yeesh…..

A Classic! Judy Garland And Robert Goulet And Red Buttons Are Wonderful
Verified purchase
I watched this animated movie Gay Purree years ago, and I’ve always loved it. The talents of the late Judy Garland, Robert Goulet and Red Buttons come to life as cats in a wonderful adventure set in Paris. Great songs, enjoyable for all ages.

For the Children In Us All!!!
Verified purchase
Seller's price point was competitive.
This is a fantastic movie. The clarity and colour in dvd format is amazing. This is a great way to introduce children to the old masters of European art, and music. The movie is an animated painting set in the back drop of Paris and the countryside, with fantastic songs and a very charming story line. Judy Garland sings to delight, and so does Robert Goulet. The voice artistry lists a phenomenal cast.
Have loved this movie since I was a child. My children loved it; and so will the grandchildren! If you haven't seen it, then you have no idea what you are missing.
I would highly recommend this movie. Sit and enjoy by yourself, or better yet, with some children and sing along!

Beautifully drawn. Music disappointing.
Verified purchase
We enjoy animated movies and especially Judy Garland. Unfortunately most of the music was pretty lame, and Judy's voice was well past its prime.

Wonderful classic
Verified purchase
This theatrical length animated classic has everything. Great voice cast, music and songs. The animation style reflects the Warner Brothers studio's short cartoons and has the look and feel of Chuck Jones' influence. Most importantly, it's funny when it needs to be. I've seen this many times over the last 40 years and it's still funny. Especially the cat villain Meowrice, voiced by Paul Frees and Hermione Gingold as the cat madam. Judy Garland's performance is bright and perky, her singing voice still vibrant. Besides a trip down memory lane, this is a great family film suitable for the young, and young at heart.
My only complaint is that the movie was produced full frame, but the DVD is "matted" to match the theatrical aspect ratio. This has aired countless times full frame on tv, and that's how everyone is used to seeing it. There's no option to view the DVD full frame, but it's a small sacrifice considering it's such a beautiful copy of the film.
Highly recommended!

As an artist who speaks French, I absolutely enjoy the color in this movie, the little French references, the famous voices...I think it's spectacular
