Aristocats KIDS is based on a story by Tom McGowan and Tom Rowe, and revolves around a family of aristocratic cats, and how an alley cat acquaintance helps them after a butler has kidnapped them to gain his mistress' fortune, which was meant to go to them. In Paris, France, in 1910, a mother cat named Duchess and her kittens live in the mansion of retired opera singer Madame Adelaide Bonfamille. Edgar, the jealous butler, hears this While the Aristocats practice singing ("Scales and Arpeggios"), Edgar warms some milk. After they fall asleep, Edgar takes the Aristocats out into the country and leaves them in a ditch. As the Aristocats wake up, lost and alone, Napoleon and his pack of Country Dogs chase Edgar away ("Use Your Nose"). An Alley Cat named O'Malley discovers the Aristocats ("Thomas O'Malley Cat"), who are surprised to find him friendly. Despite the protests of the other Alley Cats, O'Malley agrees to help the Aristocats find their way home to Madame. In Paris, O'Malley and the Alley Cats show the Aristocats the benefits of their freewheeling life ("Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat"). The Dogs and Geese join the Alley Cats to save the Aristocats and ship Edgar away ("The Butler Did It!/Finale"). Madame celebrates the return of her precious Aristocats and agrees to take in all their friends as her treasured pets ("Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat").
