The Aristocats

Synopsis: Retired madame Adelaide Bonfamille enjoys the good life in her Paris villa with even classier cat Duchess and three kittens: pianist Berlioz, painter Toulouse and sanctimonious Marie. When loyal butler Edgar overhears her will leaves everything to the cats until their death, he drugs and kidnaps them. However retired army dogs make his sidecar capsize on the country. Crafty stray cat Thomas O'Malley takes them under his wing back to Paris. Edgar tries to cover his tracks and catch them at return, but more animals turn on him, from the cart horse Frou-Frou to the tame mouse Roquefort and O'Malley's jazz friends.

Which pet's address

is the finest in Paris?

Which pets possess

the longest pedigree?

Which pets get to sleep

on velvet mats?


The Aristocats

Which pets are blessed with

the fairest forms and faces?

Which pets know best

all the gentle social graces?

Which pets live

on cream and loving pats?


The Aristocats

They show aristocratic bearing

When they're seen upon an airing

And aristocratic flair in what they do

And what they say

Aristocats are never found

in alleyways

Or hanging 'round the garbage cans

Where common kitties play

Oh, no

Which pets are known

to never show their claws

Which pets are prone

to hardly any flaws?

To which pets do the others

tip their hats?


The Aristocats

Marie, my little one.

You're going to be

as beautiful as your mother.

Isn't she, Duchess?

Careful, Toulouse.

You're making it

very difficult for Edgar.

Whoa, Frou-Frou, whoa.

Steady, girl.

Thank you, Edgar.

Oh, of course, Frou-Frou.

I almost forgot.

Madame... may I take

your parcel, Madame?

It really is much too heavy

for you, Madame.

Now, tut-tut, Edgar.

Don't fuss over me.

Berlioz, come back here.

Haven't you forgotten

something, darling?

Thank you, Miss Frou-Frou, for

letting me ride on your back.

You're quite welcome, young man.

How was that, Mama?

Very good, darling.

That was very nice.

Come along, Duchess. Kittens.

Come along.

Oh, and Edgar,

I'm expecting my attorney,

Georges Hautecourt.

You'll remember him, of course.

Of course, Madame.

How could anyone forget him?

Not as spry as I was when I was 80, eh?

Oh, good day, sir.

Madame is expecting you, sir.

Evening. Evening, Edgar.

Another ringer, sir.

You never miss.

Come on, Edgar! The last one

up the stairs is a nincompoop!

Could we take the elevator

this time, sir?

Oh, that birdcage? Poppycock.

Elevators are for old people.

May I give you a hand, sir?

You haven't got an extra foot,

have you, Edgar?

That always makes me laugh, sir.

Every time.

Let go of my cane!

Careful, sir. Please.

Frightfully sorry, sir.

Don't panic, Edgar.

Upward and onward!

Am I going too fast for you, Edgar?

Please, sir, hold...

There now, Duchess.

That's better.

We must both look our best

for Georges.

He's our oldest

and dearest friend, you know.

Come in.





Oh, my goodness, Edgar.

I know Georges.

Adelaide, my dear.

So good to see you, Georges.

Still the softest hands in all Paris.

You're a shameless flatterer, Georges.

Adelaide, that's music.

It's from Carmen, isn't it?

That's right. It was my favourite role.

Yes, yes.

It was the night of your grand

premiere that we first met. Remember?

Oh, indeed, I do.

And how we celebrated your success.

Champagne, dancing the night away...

Oh, Georges.

Thank goodness.

Just in time.


We're just a pair

of sentimental old fools.

Now, Georges, do be serious.

I've asked you to come here

on a very important legal matter.

Splendid, splendid.

Who do you want me to sue, eh?

Come now, Georges.

I don't wish you to sue anyone.

I simply want to make my will.

Will, eh? Will...


Now, then, who are the beneficiaries?

Well, as you know,

I have no living relatives.

Naturally, I want my beloved cats

to be always well-cared for.

Certainly, no one can do this better

than my faithful servant, Edgar.


Adelaide, you mean to say you're

leaving your vast fortune to Edgar?

Everything you possess?

Stocks and bonds?

This mansion? Your country chateau?

Your treasures, jewels, and?
