french cats

GAY PURR-EE was released in 1962. the ‘musical’ story, featuring the voices of JUDY GARLAND and ROBERT GOULET, was directed by ABE LEVITOW, produced by UPA. the only thing I find interesting about this piece is the art direction by VICTOR HABOUSH. maybe the colors in some of the BG’s go a bit over the top, and the color combinations are very unusual. the style of the film’s french environment from the early 20th century shows some references to VAN GOGH, CEZANNE and TOULOUSE LAUTREC. following are a few pan background recreations.
