Episode Twenty Five: Cats Don’t Dance (1997)

Our first animated film! And it is a film about filmmaking! Sort of. Really it’s a film about stereotypes and using them for comic effect. A drunk fish, a curmudgeonly goat, a scare turtle, etc. Although apparently they didn’t really know the stereotype for a hippo, so they just made that character loud and happy. What would the stereotype for a hippo be? Anyway, I’m wandering. This movie is notable for two reasons near and dear to our heart here at the Better With Booze Film Club. One: the choreographing was allegedly done by Gene Kelly just before he passed away. And two: the songs in the movie were written by Randy Newman. How could you lose?
