Helped immeasurably by the voices of Phil Harris, Eva Gabor, Sterling Holloway, Scatman Crothers and others, plus some outstanding animation, songs, sentiment, some excellent dialog and even a touch of psychedelia.

Harris, who gave Jungle Book a lot of its punch, is even more prominent here as the voice of an alley cat who rescues Gabor and her three kittens. Gabor’s voice and related animation are excellent, ditto that for two hound dogs, Pat Buttram and George Lindsey.

The technical details of the $4 million cartoon are marvelous to behold.
