Synopsis Plot Summary: A Mother and her Kittens were taking a walk when they came upo a hungry Tora-Chan. Giving the kittens their lunch which consisted of milk, she took the remainder of the milk and feed Tora-Chan. The Mother kitten brings home Tora with her family and all seem to get along with him, except for the youngest cat daughter. When the youngest cat runs away, Tora-chan looks for her.
Review There is music and songs all the way through, so this is really a musical. The animation makes the cats more human than cat, and the overall result is perhaps a little odd, and the monochrome contributes a further layer of unreality.
