The Wizard Of Paws (1939)

The first great mew-sical tells the tail of a young kitten from Kansas and her dog Toto (dog!!). When a tornado sweeps across their farm, they are whisked off to the magical land of Paws. There she meets up with a hair-brained group of misfits in a quest to find the Wizard of Paws.

Singin' In The Rain (1952)

This is another mew-sical starring the great Gene Kitty, this time with leading lady, Debbie Ren-Folds. A silent film production company and cast make a difficult transition to sound. Will Kathy continue to "aspire", or will she get the break she deserves ?
