Favorite Films: The AristoCats (1970)

When I was a child, I would watch The AristoCats (1970) over and over again - I absolutely loved to be enveloped in the gorgeous color scheme, characters, and setting of the movie. Even now, The Aristocats ranks very high on my favorite films list, and I think the animation is vastly underrated. Here are some of my favorite stills from the movie!

What were your favorite films as a child?

  1. Personally I loved and I still do 101 Dalmatians and The Jungle Book. I just thought a singing bear was the coolest thing ever.

  8. This is such a timely post - just yesterday I was singing "Thomas O'Malley" and pretending to be a kitty cat. The Aristocats is one of the few Disney movies that I've replaced with a DVD, though all of the original Disney films are wonderful!

  18. As a child, I was a big fan of The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Star Wars. As an adult, I love the kid-friendly movies The Princess Bride, How to Train Your Dragon and Ghostbusters.

    I gave you a shoutout on my blog (Anna de los Muertos) because I adore your posts. Oh, and it seems that some of your older images (great job, by the way, they're lovely) aren't showing up due to photobucket being too full. :)

  19. I loved anything Disney and Tim Burton as a child because that's what my dad would always watch with me. My favorite movies from when I was little are The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mulan, and The Last Unicorn. I wore out the tape on The Nightmare Before Christmas and I really loved how brave Mulan was! ^^

  28. I have always loved the Aristocats, it's one of my favourite Disney films! It's very hard to pick a favourite, but if I had to choose I'd maybe say Beauty and the Beast. But what I really love about the Aristocats is the drawing style. And the songs.

  29. Nice screencaps! I've always loved this film, but I hadn't watched it since I was a kid, so when I watched it as an adult a couple of years back I was shocked at how unpolished the animation is. This is not a bad thing, though! We're used to computerised perfection, and it was actually refreshing to see something that looks made by actual people. It made me wonder, though, if the kids of today actually like the film or only the merchandise...

  36. This is one of my favourite films too :D I like how you've taken the time to show the variety of backgrounds in the film of all the settings in Paris, when you watch the film you don't take it in as much so its great to see these images and appreciate them and how beautifully created they are :D xx
