A 1986 comedy that originally aired as an episode of The Disney Sunday Movie.

Deceased millionaire Oscar Kohlmeyer left five million dollars to his cat Leo. How far will Oscar's nephew go to grab that money?


This film contains examples of:

  • Henpecked Husband: Mr. Rigsby. If not for his wife pushing him around, he wouldn't have contested the will and the movie wouldn't have a plot.
  • Never My Fault: Mrs. Rigsby forced her husband to contest his uncle's will and later blamed him for losing the money he'd have inherited if the will remained uncontested.
  • On One Condition: Mr. Kohlmeyer's nephew would have inherited twenty-five thousand dollars if he hadn't contested the will.
  • Passed-Over Inheritance: Mr. Kohlmeyer chose his cat over his nephew.
  • Pet Heir: Leo.
  • Secret Keeper: The few characters who knew Leo was a talking cat.
