Disney 53: The Aristocats

As we march bravely on through 2013, Thn will take a nostalgic yet critical look at the 53 Walt Disney Animated Classics, from Snow White to Wreck-it Ralph, through the obscurity of Fun And Fancy Free to the second Golden Age of Beauty And The Beast.

And this week we’re thinking goose with The Aristocats.

1970/ 78 minutes

Directed by Wolfgang Reitherman
