The Aristocats: Thomas O'Malley
The Aristocats Release date: Dec. 11, 1970 We easily could fill two or three lists with felines from the Disney world of cartoons, but if we have to pick one, it's the only Disney production that's dedicated specifically to celebrating cats. Though not one of Disney's most popular films, "The Aristocats" has something of a cult following. Its central song, "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat," remains an anthem for cat lovers. "The Aristocats" also is notable for being the last film project Walt Disney himself approved before he died, although the movie wasn't completed and released until a few years after his death.
