* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Both comedy scenes involving Edgar and the hound dogs. The first occurs when Edgar is trying to dump the cats in the countryside. The only event that's strictly relevant to the plot - when Edgar loses the basket - happens early in the scene. The slapstick chase sequence goes on for about five minutes, involving Edgar getting flung into the air ''twice'' and a windmill. The second scene, where Edgar returns and retrieves the objects he lost during the chase, isn't actually required for the plot at all.
* DesignatedVillain: Edgar is implied to have been a dutiful servant to Madame Adelaide for years if not decades, and now finds out she's leaving her entire fortune ''to her cats'' before him, specifically telling her lawyer that Edgar will only get the money once each of her cats has lived out their lives. Considering Edgar is getting the shaft despite his years of service, is shown to live in squalor, and that it's implied Adelaide is maybe a little senile given she's obviously a CrazyCatLady, it's not hard to understand his actions. He also never really crosses the MoralEventHorizon prior to the finale -- despite having numerous, easier opportunities to just kill them and get it over with, Edgar only ever attempts to get rid of the cats, and never physically harms them until his VillainousBreakdown.

* GeniusBonus: Zigzagged a bit with "Scales and Arpeggios". While there's plenty of both in ''Marie's'' part, most of the accompaniment that Berlioz plays is a third technique, known as "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alberti_bass Alberti bass]]".

This is {{justified|Trope}} by the rules of musical counterpoint, which among other things frowns upon the use of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consecutive_fifths parallel octaves]], i.e. two different voices playing the same exact material.

** During the climatic battle, as Roquefort tries to unlock the chest they're locked in and as Edgar is being attacked by the alley cats, Rouquefort gets them all to temporarily stop their fight and hold still so he can concentrate on unlocking it. Edgar doesn't take the opportunity to stop the mouse. Then again, [[RuleOfFunny that might have been the joke.]]

** Marie is getting a disproportionate amount of attention in Japan, and is more frequently featured in Tokyo Disneyland. The reason why? Japanese love kittens. So much so that she's gotten her own manga that was [[NoExportForYou released in Japan a few years ago called]] [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Miriya_%26_Marie "Miriya & Marie"]]

If you're looking for ''Aristocats'' merchandise outside Japan, you won't find any outside of the DVD and Blu-Ray, and the occasional novelization and picture book. Marie merchandise, on the other hand...

Added DiffLines:

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A mild case all things considered, but the story of a wealthy individual leaving their entire fortune to their pampered pets likely would not get a pass today.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The delivery truck that collects the trunk (With Edgar inside) is ''very clearly'' the same truck from ''101 Dalmatians''; the rotoscoping effect used on it is even more obvious here, making it look much more fake.

* OneSceneWonder:
** Bill Thompson as the ''hilariously'' drunk Uncle Waldo. Even the main characters comment on it.
---> "I like Uncle Waldo."
---> "Yes, especially when he's 'marinated.'"
** Unfortunately, this was also Bill Thompson's final role in an animated film, due to him dying of septic shock a few months later.

* MoralEventHorizon: Edgar attacking O'Malley with a pitchfork and before that king after him with a sickle, which certainly would have killed him. Then again, [[CatsHaveNineLives he did have a few lives to spare.]]
