For a while I've had this extraordinary idea for a brand new Disney animated series based on the classic film That Darn Cat!. Full of mysteries, adventure and to top it off some comedy.
Set in New York City, That Darn Cat: The Animated Seires follows the adventures of Patti Randall, a teenage computer-whiz and her mischievous cat D.C. Together the these two unlikely heroes often find themselves on the edge of adventure whenever there is a mystery afoot. Working together, they face off some of the cities most dangerous and not so dangerous criminal masterminds and bring them to justice. At the same time, Patti struggles with her average teenage school life while D.C. tries to enjoy the average life of a cat, but with a cat like D.C. there is one heck of a menace under all that fur.
