No One Seems To Remember This Classic Gem From The 90s, Do You?

Disney may have taken over most of the cartoon real estate in the 90s, but there are a few hidden gems that weren't made by good ol' Walt and they deserve just as much love. One of the best cartoons to come out of the 90s was made by Warner Brothers (home of The Animaniacs) and was called Cat's Don't Dance. If you have seen this movie, you know that when I say it is absolute perfection, I am not lying. If you haven't, prepare yourself to meet your new favorite movie.

Cat's Don't Dance is the amazing story of what happens when you follow your dreams. It starts off with a cat named Danny with the voice of Scott Bakula leaving his small town to go to Hollywood. He wants to be a star and hopes to play big roles in all the movies, but when he arrives he learns that it's not going to be easy.

The agency he signs up with only wants him to be a cat, which in Hollywood means saying nothing but "meow". The town is run by one tiny little star named Darla Dimple. Darla is kind of like an evil Shirley Temple, a child star who is known for her curly hair and adorable face, but instead of being a sweet kid she is secretly horrible and hateful.

Her two part song in the movie is probably one of the best cartoon songs ever.

Also her henchman Max is this psychotic character that may just haunt your dreams for all time but it's okay because he is hilarious.

Danny makes a few friends on his path to stardom, most importantly Sawyer. She is another cat who wanted to be a star but she gave up her dreams and has become very cynical (but still amazing). There is also Tillie the Hippo, Woolie the Elephant, a fish named Frances a goat named Cranston and of course Danny's best bud in Hollywood, Pudge the Penguin.

The songs in this movie are pretty epic. As I said before, Darla Dimple's big villain song is one for the ages and the finale song is absolutely wonderful as well.

Some movies just stick with you forever and this was always one of those for me. If you haven't seen it, please do yourself a favor and watch it as soon as humanly possible. You will not regret it.

Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else. Between Geena Davis's confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks's cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible. Every character was well-developed and brought something to the movie, and together they told a story that touched a lot of hearts. It has been over 25 years since A League Of Their Own


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he
