Top Cat will be bringing his unique cool to the big screen

Poor, lonely and living on the streets, Top Cat is one sad cat, until a chance meeting with Benny, a naive and good-hearted cat looking for adventure. The pair quickly become best buddies - and partners in crime - pick-pocketing their way out of poverty and quickly believing they are the cats' whiskers!

Setting their sights higher, they decide to steal from Mr. Big, a mysterious diamond-stealing henchman who rules New York's backstreets. As Top Cat and Benny hatch a plan to take the diamonds for themselves, little do they know, success is just the start of their problems. Along the way, our heroes meet fellow alley cats Choo Choo, Fancy-Fancy and Brain, and together they're a formidable bunch. However, when Mr. Big catches up with them and captures Top Cat, can his new friends save the day?

The animated adventure is in cinemas from 27 May.
