Walt talks about the cat family, primarily focusing on lions and domestic cats. It is explained particularly on the cats' importance to ancient Egypt and how some people would respect them, and others would fear them as superstitious beings.
Walt then shows the cats of fiction by showing clips from his past films. He recounts Pinocchio's friendship with Figaro, Alice's meeting with the crazy Cheshire Cat and how Cinderella's mouse friends barely escaped the clutches of Lucifer. Finally, he shows a classic cartoon featuring Lambert, the "black sheep" of the great cat family.
