We were really lucky to be sent a copy of the brand new Top Cat: The Movie DVD ahead of its release on Monday 15th October. I was a huge Top Cat fan when I was a little girl so I was dying to see it, never mind my children!
Based on the much-loved Hanna-Barbera cartoon that captivated the imagination of children and adults alike since it first appeared in the 1960s, Top Cat: The Movie did not disappoint. It brings the vibrancy, colour and retro charm of the original cartoon to a new generation and will undoubtedly be enjoyed by audiences young and old. After more than a 50-year hiatus, Top Cat and his rap-trap feline gang return with ‘the most tip-top’ adventure that’s purrfect for all the family.
Benny the Ball, Fancy Fancy, Choo Choo, Spook and Brains, and the indisputable leader of the gang TC, are back at war with the long arm of the law when the menacing Police Chief Strickland moves to town, ousting the bumbling Officer Dibble. Determined to put a stop to the feline antics in Hoagy’s Alley with the help of a bullying robot police force, the tech-savvy Strickland threatens to be the most dastardly enemy the gang has ever faced. With their wise-guy lifestyle hanging in the balance, TC and friends are forced to cash in on another of their nine lives to curtail Strickland’s reign of terror and claw their way back to the top!
Joining old favourites TC, his tip-top gang and Officer Dibble, Top Cat: The Movie sees the welcome return of a host of lovable characters from the original Hanna-Barbera cartoon, including the fiery-tempered Griswald the Dog and the esteemed Maharaja of Pookajee. The voice-cast bring all the New York swagger of the original cartoon to this wonderfully mischievous feature-length adventure.
We absolutely loved this movie and it gets a huge thumbs up from all of us! It was great to get a sneak preview but if you want to get your paws on it, Top Cat: The Movie is set to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray family pack on 15 October 2012 and will be available from all good retailers. Enjoy!
