Default 'The Aristocats' - High-Def Digest Review

Aaron has reviewed 'The Aristocats.' He says this isn't a top-tier Disney title, but it's enjoyable, particularly for the style of it's animation. This Blu-ray features a faithful video presentation coupled with a well-put-together audio track. Fans will be very happy. Recommended.

I loved The Aristocats (or "De Aristokatten") as a child! I'm sure it still holds up. Never heard the English version, but isn't Phil Harris also Baloo The Bear? Isn't that distracting to see him as a cat? Or does he adequately change his voice to suit the feline?

Great intro song by Maurice Chevalier, by the way! Lovely French accent: "Widge cets are best ... are ze finest in Paris ..."

What bothers me about these so-called "second tier Disney releases" is the lack of GOOD bonus content. They should produce retrospective docs, with some of the folks that are still alive (there's bound to be some!) and the people running the studio nowadays, talking about the animation style, how they've come a long way etcetera.
