Mewsette!Reviewed bydecembercld2007Vote: 10/10

I love this movie because the cats are so cute. To me this movie feels like a Golden Era Hollywood musical that got turned into a cartoon with music. Judy Garland's singing is superb. She hit all of her notes and the other voice over actors are good too. The artwork is very French and I liked the clip where Mewsette was being shown in multiple paintings. Major French artists got to have their works represented to children.

There is not much violence so kids can easily watch this movie. I don't think this movie could ever be remade because the talent was there behind the scenes and on camera. It's not easy to make a film about singing cats and keep my attention. But they were able.

A rather underrated animated musicalReviewed byTheOneManBoxOfficeVote: 8/10

Animation historians may have heard of the studio called United Productions of America. They were best known for creating animated shorts such as the Oscar-winning Gerald McBoing-Boing, the suspenseful short adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart narrated by James Mason, and the Mr. Magoo television series. They've made two animated features during their run. The first was the 1959 loose adaptation of 1001 Arabian Nights released under Columbia. The second one became the 1962 film Gay Purr-ee, released under Warner Brothers and directed by Abe Levitow, who has worked on many a Looney Tunes short with his partner Chuck Jones prior to this.

Set in France in the 1890s, also known as the Gay '90s as the title implies, the film is about Mewsette (Judy Garland in her only voice role), a country feline living on a farm with the mouser Jaune-Tom (Robert Goulet in his film debut) and his partner, a small blue kitten named Robespierre (Red Buttons). However, tired of her farm life, she hears about the beauty of living in the city of Paris, and decides to run away and catch the train. She is introduced by a black-and-white schemer named Meowrice (I swear, I'm not making that name up), not knowing that he has some rather slimy plans for her. Jaune-Tom learns of Mewsette's departure from Robespierre and they head for Paris to try and find her.

Even though the film is animated, it is, at heart, a musical, on par with many other musical films released before this, including the ones that also star Judy Garland. In fact, all of the songs written for the picture were done by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg, the same duo who wrote the songs for the beloved 1939 MGM classic The Wizard of Oz. Even after 23 years, their songwriting still held water, with songs like the uplifting "Roses Red, Violets Blue", and the slower ballads like "Take My Hand Paris", "Little Drops of Rain", and my favorite one of them all, "Paris is a Lonely Town", to name a few.

For the animation, if you're familiar with the shorts made by UPA, the animation is limited, but visually appealing and influential in terms of design and style, with French expressionism being a large inspiration of how the final film is supposed to look. For an animated film made in the '60s, this is probably the most colorful and very much alive. This is further utilized in a later scene where the film's artists make parody portraits based on the works of Vincent Van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Claude Monet, and, yes, even Pablo Picasso. After watching the scene, you'll know why UPA was known for their unique style that other studios weren't doing in their heyday.

The sad thing about this film is that it is not as well recognized as a lot of other animated classics. Even the 1970 animated Disney film "The Aristocats", which also took place in France and focuses on...well...cats, became more popular. The only people that would remember this film is if they were film and animation historians or if you saw it via Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre back in the '90s. Thankfully, however, the film is being re-discovered, with airings on Turner Classic Movies and releases on DVD via the Warner Archive Collection. For me, this is an underrated piece of animated cinema that should've gotten more recognition over the years. If you enjoy classic animation, definitely pick this one up.

two of the most important parts of popular culture finally meet (there's also a link to current events)Reviewed bylee_eisenbergVote: 7/10

"The Wizard of Oz" is one of the most beloved movies of all time. The Looney Tunes are one of the most popular cartoon franchises of all time. The two indirectly crossed paths with Abe Levitow's "Gay Purr-ee", with Judy Garland voicing a cat who leaves rural France for Paris with the aim of making it big. It's obviously not the most famous animated feature, but it has an enjoyable plot. The writing by Chuck Jones and additional voice work by Mel Blanc make for an unusual connection to a certain screwy rabbit, lisping duck and stuttering pig (in fact, Abe Levitow directed a couple of Looney Tunes cartoons for Chuck Jones).

The rest of the voice work includes Robert Goulet (the villain in "Naked Gun 2 1/2"), Red Buttons (Oscar-winner for "Sayonara"), Paul Frees (the voice of Boris on "Rocky & Bullwinkle" and the Ghost Host in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion) and Morey Amsterdam (Buddy on "The Dick Van Dyke Show"). As it happens, Julie Bennett (who voiced one of the women in the Provence scene) died of the coronavirus earlier this year). Strange how these things work out.

Anyway, cool movie.
