Editorial Reviews

Magnificent. That's the voice of Judy Garland. Magnifique. That's Gay Purr-ee, a charming animated musical featuring the great Garland in one of her final roles. She's the singing and speaking voice of Mewsette, a French country cat who runs off to Paris during the Gay '90s. Director: Abe Levitow

"Gay Purr-ee" is a very charming film that is sure to delight the whole family. It is cleverly and artfully presented, with Chuck Jones' trademark Looney Tunes-esque animation, and a sweet little story, which, though rather slim, holds the viewer's interest for every single one of its eighty-six minutes. It also showcases some of the best vocal talent in town: Judy Garland, Robert Goulet, Red Buttons, Paul Frees, and Hermione Gingold. The story is simple: French country farm cat Mewsette (Garland, using clever vocals) is bored with her dull and listless existence, and leaves her home, her ardent suitor Jaune-Tom (Goulet, also in excellent voice), and friend Robespierre (Buttons, whose squeaky characterizations are pefect for his diminutive character). Once in Paris, the naive Mewsette meets up with cunning Meowrice (Frees, perfectly diabolic) and Madame Rubens-Chatte (Gingold, also with interesting vocals), who plan to make a little money by making Mewsette into a courtesan, then selling her off to a fat old tabby cat in Pittsburgh who wants a wife. But Jaune-Tom and Robespierre are hot on their tails... The movie is also blessed with a splendid songbook by E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen, who gave you the score of "The Wizard of Oz". Children will enjoy the film's story and characters, and adults will certainly be amused by familiar voices and the film's light sophistication. No doubt about it: "Gay Purr-ee" is one to see and take pleasure in, for it is abundant in this charming animated classic.

If you've seen every Judy movie but have shied away from this one because Judy doesn't even appear onscreen in it..well you're in for a sueprise!
Judy as Mewsette is so enchanting, so hysterically funny, so French and so feline! There are sad moments, happy moments..but trust me this is an exceptional effort (especially if you love gorgeou animation) and one worth having in your collection.
Here's my original rave review...
Gay Purr-ee is meowriffic!!!!
I love it!!! The animation is gorgeous, striking and technically brilliant, Walt Disney eat your heart out. I particularly love the visuals with the different artists of the 'gay 90's' in France...Cezanne, Toulouse Lautrec, Seurat, Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, etc. Very 'American in Paris', feline style.
Judy's voice is purrfect. As Mewsette, she's very French, very provincial with a touch of Parisian breathlessness, when she sings it's achingly beautiful.
Janune Tom is a honey. And the Money cat is the villain..the scene where the villain is mean is classic. Judy really put on the hysterics.
Funny bits..when she tries to walk with a bowl of milk on her head. And fails. Touches of Gigi.
the buggy ride. 'What's kissing?' 'erm, it's like touching noses' how true.
Chanpagne, Champignons and Champs Elysees. Bad American French. What'll you'll have? Milk? No make it Cream! How about...bubbles? And the cats actually get drunk.
Am I the only one who appreciates this film???
Put Gay Purree up there with Wizard of Oz on the shelf. You won't be disappointed.

While children may appreciate the relatively simple storyline, (boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl), it is the sentimental and romantic adult who will get the most visual enjoyment from this astounding piece of eye candy, as well as the pure pleasure of Miss Garland at her most vulnerable but triumphant best. The background and animation are an incredible combination of French Impressionist art and charming 60s kitsch. A fantastic antidote for today's violent "superhero" cartoons. Have a family snuggle in front of the tube and prepare to be enchanted.

Rare and hard to find nowadays, this was and still is one of my favorite childrens' movies of all time. Sweet story, great vocals, cute characters and Chuck Jones. Couldn't be better! I love the images of France as well.

Format: DVD
I first saw this on the 9 o'clock movie on CBS in the mid-sixties (it was the Friday Night Movie). I was in the first grade at the time. Forty-two years later, it still sticks with me! So, when it came out on DVD, I ordered up my copy! True, the kids today wouldn't even "waste their time." Too bad! This movie was fun to watch - is fun to watch. Judy Garland and Robert Goulet are in great form! Red Buttons is great, also!

Finally, Paul Frees' is absolutely perfect. After all, "The Money Cat Can!" (Me-owwww!!) Get yourself a copy and re-live at least a bit of our childhood when things were much simpler! Five stars for Gay-Puree!!

This was my favorite animated movie as a child. I was transfixed when I saw it at the age of six and still am (too many years later). The colors are beautiful, and one would be hard-pressed to find a little girl who doesn't fall in love with Mewsette. As far as I'm concerned, that is the ONLY name for a fluffy white feline. And Jean-Tom is a real boy's cat, too. I found a copy which my three girls, ages 10, 7, and 3 are all equally in love with. And it also gives a very amusing yet informative mini art lesson.

My wife saw this cartoon when she was a little girl back in the '60 and on a B/W TV. She has been talking about it for all these years and wanting to see it again.
And now it is here on DVD. And I must admit: This is a sweet cartoon. I especially like the sequence where Suzette is painted in many different styles (impressionistic and so on).
And my wife is happy!
