The 1970's saw Disney less focused on animated films and more on live action family films, predominantly for a young audience. The output was of various quality and didn't really ignite any sparks at the box office.
This live action offering is about a superintelligent extraterrestrial cat who lands on Earth to make repairs to it's spacecraft.
It's a rather humble film, with no great set pieces or visual effects, but it's pleasing to its intended market, though it's probably only watchable nowadays as a nostalgia piece.
