User Reviews: Although too long at 85 minutes, this animated musical from UPA is quite tuneful, with visual wit and flair to spare. Slim plot, about a French barnyard feline seeking adventures in Paris, is helped considerably by bright Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg songs, and of course by Judy Garland’s incandescent speaking and singing voice as Mewsette. Never popular with children, the film’s writing tends to place the accent on sophisticated conversation, less on animated hilarity. Consequently, it isn’t a big crowd-pleaser, although students of animation would be wise to check it out (the humorous art history lesson on the Impressionists is worth the time alone). **1/2 from ****
