Claude, the youngest son of a miller, is unhappy when his late father leaves him only a tomcat. When Claude decides to do away with his feline inheritance, the cat devises a clever plan to save his own skin and transform his dim-witted owner into a noble prince. A splendid comic adaptation of the classic French fairy tale. Ages 5 & up. Children's Music Web Award special judges citation.
I have loved this version since I was a kid and was glad to find it streaming here! Tracey Ullman's narration, especially in her hyperbolic French accent, is funny and strange. I think it's a good test for kids today to watch after living in a world of hyper-real Pixar/Disney/Dreamworks productions. There is no animation, just a panning across of illustration. It is simple and lovely.
