''Cats Don't Dance'' is a 1997 film, and, other than ''WesternAnimation/ThePagemaster'' in 1994, the only one made by Turner Entertainment's animation unit before Creator/WarnerBros took over. The film was choreographed by Gene Kelly, and the main character was based on him as well. Kelly died in 1996 mid-production.

* TuftOfHeadFur: Both feline main characters have a significant amount of fur atop their heads. Orange tabby tom Danny has the standard tuft that even his straw hat can't contain, while pretty angora kitty Sawyer likes to curl hers into a stylish swirl. Being the main characters, theirs are the most prominent of all the anthropomorphic characters in-universe.
