Narrated by two members of the feline family--a jungle maneater and a humble housecat--this Disneyland episode gets started by explaining that there are two classifications of human beings: Those who like cats and those who don't. Using newly-minted animation and a few live-action sequences, the episode illustrates its point by tracing the history of cats, from their veneration as sacred icons in the Egypt of 4000 years ago to their important role in the realm of Superstition. Some of the cartoon footage in The Great Cat Family later resurfaced in the 1977 Disney TV special Hallowe'en Hall of Fame.
