The Wonderful World of Puss 'N Boots

Director: Fred Ladd
    see all cast/crew...
Genre: Anime, Kids, Action Anime, Animated
Languages: English, French, Japanese, Italian, Russian

The Wonderful World of Puss 'N Boots reveals that an outlaw can possess some very redeeming qualities and suggests that sometimes the seemingly simple-minded just need a little push to live up to their full potential. The Japanese 1969 classic Puss 'N Boots details the story of a good-hearted outlaw cat named Pero and his role in the coming of age of a young boy named Pierre. Consistently chased by three blundering police cats for the crime of saving the lives of mice, Pero is a scrappy cat whose sword rarely pauses in its offensive. When Pero encounters the mistreated and innocent Pierre, he convinces Pierre to leave his unkind brothers and accompanying Pero on his wandering travels. Amidst the action-packed sword fights and chase scenes, Pero convinces Pierre to pose as a Prince and suitor to the Princess. The initially timid boy begins a process of maturation that leads him to fight for the Princess's hand and eventually reveals his heretofore unseen innate strength and optimism. This DVD features the original (restored and remastered) Puss 'N Boots as it was released in Japan in 1969 as well as the English dubbed version featuring Fred Ladd and optional English subtitles and slates. Hayao Miyazaki's (My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaa Valley of the Wind) animation work in key action scenes showcases his early talents and is of special interest to Miyazaki fans. Bonus features include a music and effects soundtrack, theatrical trailer, photo gallery of over 40 rare black and white stills, and text interviews with director Kimio Yabuki and Animator Yoichi Kotabe. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Okay for 5-year-olds by MBreslau July 11, 2009 - 7:15 AM PDT

As a (nearly-senile) adult, I was underwhelmed by this movie.
Seven-year-olds may have outgrown it's 'ancient' American animation style (does not look like anime) and primitive story line.

I rented this because of Miyazaki's contribution, but I was disappointed

Still the art quality was okay...
