Top Cat the Movie? No Way! Yes Way!

I never knew this was coming but I gotta say I am really pleased about this news.Top Cat was one of my favourite cartoons when I was younger and I hope they do this justice.


From the makers of StreetDance 1& 2 and Horrid Henry, Vertigo Films are pleased to announce the UK theatrical release of Top Cat: The Movie in 3D in August 2012.


Based on the classic animated Hanna Barbara cartoon series, Top Cat: The Movie sees TC (Top Cat) and the gang face their biggest adventure yet.  A new tech-savvy police chief joins the force and not only threatens to retire bumbling Officer Dibble, but stop the feline antics in Hoagy’s Alley, once and for all. 


Top Cat: The Movie was created by Anima Studios and will be released both 2D and 3D formats.


Vertigo Film’s Rupert Preston and Allan Niblo said,  “Top Cat is an iconic and much-loved character known by nearly every parent in the UK. We are thrilled to be bringing Top Cat, his mischievous gang and Officer Dibble to a whole new generation”


Richard S. Guardian, of Guardian Entertainment International, negotiated the sale on behalf of Lightning Entertainment and Anima Studios with Vertigo’s Allan Niblo and Rupert Preston. Guardian has said, “I’m excited that Top Cat is being released in the UK by as innovative and dynamic a company as Vertigo Films.  They have their fingers on the pulse of what audiences want to see.  The producers and I are delighted that the team that has handled films such as StreetDanceMonsters, and Horrid Henry will be putting their efforts behind Top Cat”.

  1. I wonder how they will bring this into the 21st century. I’m just glad they didn’t do this live action.
