That Darn Cat! (simply known as That Darn Cat! Cat Operation) is a 1965 American thriller comedy film directed by Robert Stevenson and starring Hayley Mills and Dean Jones in a story about bank robbers, a kidnapping and a mischievous cat produced by Walt Disney Productions.

    • I freaking LOVED this movie. Dean Jones was so good and so funny... The Love Bug movies, Blackbeard's Ghost, The Shaggy D.A... he absolutely killed every time he was on screen!

    • This movie is INDEED a gem! As children of the 80s, my Brother and I watched That Darn Cat with our Mom almost every time it aired on the Disney Channel! I can appreciate Doug’s critiques, but I honestly wouldn’t change a thing... except for the fact that the remake- which, like most of Disney’s reboots, I didn’t give the time of day- exists! Sorry. That goes against my “People can watch what they want, even if I think it’s shit!” philosophy. If you liked the remake, more power to you. But the *original D.C.* was well trained, engaging and wasn’t trying to flee from Hayley Mills’ arms every second he was onscreen!

    • Ironically while others didn't know the remake was a remake, I didn't even know a remake of this existed! As a kid...I saw THIS. NOT the remake (I know that because I crack up at the driver thru scene where DC blocks the screen EVERY TIME.) THIS was the film that made me realize not all cats were monsters (Trust me...I had a lot of run ins with my Grandma's cat. So imagine my shock when the second cat I met, a decade later, ended up LOVING me and I him...)

  • I saw this movie as a child... at the drive-in (nostalgia!) and have loved it ever since. Haven't seen the remake. Hailey Mills and Dean Jones are irreplaceable :) There are a bunch of Disney live-action family films from the 60s & 70s I'm hoping to share with my grandchildren-- Swiss Family Robinson was a favorite! Great content & analysis of a childhood favorite-- subscribed!

  • The scene at the drive-in theater will always stand out in terms of all the silliness - DC swatting at a moth in front of the projector (and the shadow being cast over the film, pissing everyone else off), the running around and people crashing into each other (snacks going flying), the detective claiming he's a health inspector (the guy running the drive through asking "Health inspector? Where's your badge?" followed by being angrily honked at), oh man, so much silliness.

  • I sadly watched this film once because the vhs was damaged and could just barely get it to play fully. Liked it as a kid though. Definitely need to rewatch. One thing about the older films is the amount of fun characters and writing. Something I miss with the current movies and overly crowded amount of remakes. Looking back I'm noticing that I recognize more of the actors. Primarily due to such Disney films around the time period. Ed Wynn as the Madd Hatter, not to mention roles in Mary Poppin and The Absent Minded Professor. Elsa Lanchester as Bride of Frankenstein. I was familar with Dean Jones from The Love Bug series and The Shaggy D.A. (sequel to the Shaggy Dog). The two robbers are known for their villain roles. Frank Gorshin for Riddler in the live action series Batman, and I recognize Neville Brand for his various roles in Western films. A good amount of these actors have appeared in The Twilight Zone.

  • Dean Jones was "Mr. Disney" at one point. 1965 -- That Darn Cat 1966 -- The Ugly Dachshund 1967 -- Monkeys, Go Home 1968 -- Blackbeard's Ghost 1968 -- The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit 1968 -- The Love Bug 1971 -- The Million Dollar Duck 1972 -- Snowball Express 1976 -- The Shaggy D.A. 1977 -- Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo Disney found a great actor. His facial expressions were almost as "cartoon-like" as Jim Carrey, and his "every man" looks made him a great lead actor. I hope you eventually review some of these other films next year.

  • Me too! Loved this film as a kid. And still do to this day. I should really check and see if my Disney+ has it in their catalog. Also speaking of old classics from the Disney library, The Great Locomotive Chase was a film that my parents said that I would watch all the time when visiting my grandparents. They had a HUGE VHS collection of old live action Disney films. Just wish that Disney+ had the film too. I haven’t seen it since I was 5 or 6 years old; so I’m not quite sure if it would hold up to this day. I’ve read some reviews that say that it’s kind of a mess. Regardless, I’d still love to check it out now as an adult.

  • The Cat from Outerspace is what got me. I had that movie on vhs. I watched it almost as many times as I watched Enter the Dragon, The Big Boss, or Chinese Connection. The Big Boss was a horror movie to me as kid. Counting from backwards.1 The good guy loses. 2 His entire family dies in an elaborate scheme perpetrated evil foreigners. 3 People stabbing each other as a matter of course. That can't be fun for anyone

Doug's done the Holiday Special, Force Awakens, Rogue One, Last Jedi, Rise of Skywalker, I guess all that's left for a Star Wars clipless review is Solo, unless Channel Awesome decides to go crazy and cover the entire first season of The Mandalorian.
