A frequent plot-line revolved around the local beat cop Charles “Charlie” Dibble, NYPD, and his ineffective attempts to evict the gang from the alley due to them constantly attempting to earn a quick dollar — usually through an illegal scam.
Well I for one loved that show and so was super excited to see the trailer for the new film just in time (well a few days after) for my birthday on May 27th 2016: Top Cat Begins. As you can guess from the title it is how the story all began.
Top Cat Begins Synopsis
Tracing the roots of the famous animated series from cartoon legends Hanna-Barbera, get set for this ‘purrfect’ feature adventure that tells the ‘tail’ of how our hero, T.C. created his infamous, Manhattan alley cats gang. Poor, lonely and living on the streets, Top Cat is one sad cat, until a chance meeting with Benny, a naive and good-hearted cat looking for adventure. The pair quickly become best buddies – and partners in crime – pick pocketing their way out of poverty and quickly believing they are the real cats’ whiskers! Setting their sights higher, they decide to steal from Mr. Big, a mysterious diamond-stealing henchman who rules New York’s backstreets. As Top Cat and Benny hatch a plan to take the diamonds for themselves, little do they know, success is just the start of their problems.
Along the way, our heroes meet fellow alley cats Choo Choo, Fancy-Fancy and Brain, and together they’re a formidable bunch. However, when Mr. Big catches up with them and captures Top Cat, can his new friends save the day?
