Top Cat!
The most effectual Top Cat!
Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him T.C.
Providing it’s with dignity.

But above everything,
He’s the most tip top,

Chances are that if you know the words to that little ditty, you’re probably to old to be interested in the following trailer for Top Cat: The Movie. The again…..

Good to see that Vertigo Films have opted for a full animated feature and not the CGI-Live Action blend that seems to have been preferable of late with the likes of Yogi Bear & The Chipmunks. 

Who’s Top Cat (just in case)?

Vertigo Films are pleased to announce the UK theatrical release of TOP CAT: THE MOVIE in 3D on Friday 1st June 2012. Based on the much-loved Hanna-Barbera cartoon that has captivated the imagination of children and adults alike since it first appeared in the 1960s, TOP CAT: THE MOVIE brings the vibrancy, colour and retro charm of the original to a new generation in spectacular 3D that will amaze audiences young and old. This summer, after more than a 50-year hiatus, TC and his rap-trap feline gang return with ‘the most tip-top’ adventure that’s purrfect for all the family.

Benny the Ball, Fancy Fancy, Choo Choo, Spook and Brains, and the indisputable leader of the gang TC, are back at war with the long arm of the law when the menacing Police Chief Strickland moves to town, ousting the bumbling Officer Dibble.

Determined to put a stop to the feline antics in Hoagy’s Alley with the help of a bullying robot police force, the tech-savvy Strickland threatens to be the most dastardly enemy the gang has ever faced.

With their wise-guy lifestyle hanging in the balance TC and friends are forced to cash in on another of their 9 lives to curtail Strickland’s reign of terror and claw their way back to the top!

TOP CAT: THE MOVIE distributor Vertigo Film’s Rupert Preston and Allan Niblo said:
