One of the lesser-known stops in the illustrious career of Judy Garland is likewise one of her most beloved by enthusiasts of all ages. GAY PURR-EE (1962) is a full-length animated feature highlighted by voice-overs and vocals featuring Garland (Mewsette) and Robert Goulet (Juane-Tom) as a pair of Parisian felines. Interestingly, it was not Disney Studios who created GAY PURR-EE, but rather Warner Brothers' Chuck Jones and United Productions of America. Not only did the primary cast act out Jones's screenplay, they sang a host of memorable compositions by none other than Harold Arlen and E.Y. "Yip" Harburg, the duo responsible for the score to THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939) some two decades earlier. By this point Garland's career was on another ascent. She had just won five Grammies for JUDY AT CARNEGIE HALL (1961) and had been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Supporting Actress category for JUDGMENT AT NUREMBURG (1961). Garland's confidence is evident throughout, especially on the enchanting ballad "Little Drops of Rain," the happy-go-lucky "Roses Red, Violets Blue," and the achingly poignant "Paris Is a Lonely Town"--any of which could easily stand up against her voluminous cinematic repertoire.
