In the six Cartoon Modern programs I had the opportunity to see many old favorites. I also learned about the Cartoon Modern movement in the Netherlands in the 1950’s and ‘60’s and the Contemporary Cartoon Modern program showed us that the legacy of the 1950’s is still very much alive.
Far too often when I see a film that I saw and loved years ago it turns out to be a big disappointment, but the UPA feature Gay Pur-ee” was as wonderful as the first time I saw it on the big screen when it was released in 1962. Judy Garland in her only animated film role was the perfect voice for the lovely, pampered house cat Mewsette, and Robert Goulet in his first film role brought the champion mouser Jaune Tom, who is in love with Mewsette, to life. The sequence of paintings of Mewsette in the styles of various famous artists such as Lautrec, Henri Rousseau, and Picasso is a delight for anyone who knows art history. Gay Pur-ee was 85 minutes of purr-fect pleasure for me.
