Welcome to Animation Monday and this week, we dive into the 20th movie released by Walt Disney Animation Studio….The AristoCats. The AristoCats premiered on December 11, 1970 before a full release on Christmas Eve in 1970. The film had a budget of $4 million dollars but made lots of money for the studio with a box office take of $55.7 million.
This film was one of only four films released by the studio in the 1970s along with Robin Hood, The Rescuers, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Like many animated movies of the time, The AristoCats is a short movie coming in at only 78 minutes in length.
