‘Pet’ catches showbiz bug

Show tunes, duets, cheeky humor permeate Disney's latest

HOLLYWOOD — Disney heard voices Sunday at the preem of “Teacher’s Pet.”

Bigscreen version of the Saturday morning toon pours on everything theater, from rah-rah show tunes to snappy duets and cheeky humor largely unseen in kids animation. (Indeed, pic is rated PG.)

Voice actors Kelsey Grammer, Wallace Shawn, David Ogden Stiers and Shaun Flemming graced the El Capitan, but star Nathan Lane was in Gotham, where he’s reprising his role in “The Producers.”

The Mouse House camp included Dick Cook, Chuck Viane, Oren Aviv, Barry Blumberg; and producer/creator Gary Baseman, co-writers Bill and Cherie Steinkellner and director Timothy Bjorklund.
