Synopsis by Nathan Southern
This feature-length adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the same title first screened on television in 1987. As it opens, alley cats Fancy-Fancy (John Stephenson), Benny the Ball, Brain (Leo de Lyon), Top Cat (Arnold Stang) and Choo-Choo (Marvin Kaplan) find themselves in Gertrude Vandergelt's posh mansion; meanwhile, a crisis is afoot, as Benny must simultaneously fight his way out of the dog pound, and evade capture by the butler Snerdly and his wolfhound Rasputin. One event leads to another, and before long, Top Hat and his boys find themselves in Beverly Hills, living the high life in limos, crashing ritzy costume parties, saving the heir to a fortune, and much more.
