Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Cats Don't Dance

Superior animated feature rivals the best of Disney's better known cartoon spectacles. The story and characters may be simplistic, but the animation is superb - original and imaginatively designed - and there's some fun voice performances and lively songs by Randy Newman. A commercial failure when it was released, this one definitely deserves a cult following.
