Product Overview

Captains of the City Streets is another trip into the world of the legendary Cat Club of Greenwich Village. Two adventurous young cats -- Sinbad and the Duke -- are best friends who share a "trampish love of the free and easy life." They travel together, away from the tall buildings of the north, in search of a home where they can practice the skip and shuffle of their boxing technique. Along they way, they meet Patchy Pete, a wise old cat, who tells them about the perfect place in the city for cats, "Little Old New York." Since mischievous cats were long ago driven from the neighborhood, Sinbad and the Duke must try to win hearts in this catless part of the city. With luck, they find themselves proud residents of their very own home -- an abandoned shack in an overgrown garden. Their hard times are far from over, however. Food is scarce until one man, an old sea captain new to the neighborhood, notices them and becomes their "Master of the Supper Nook." When the duo follow him home, to thank him, they witness one of the first meetings of the infamous Cat Club. The pet cats Madame Butterfly, Concertina, Solomon the Wise, and the President are all here. Sinbad and the Duke decide they don't need the rules and obligations of membership in any Club. But as they join in its business and frolics, they come to see that perhaps the Club needs them.
Ready for any challenge, Sinbad and the Duke, the Captains of the City Streets, charm the Cat Club's admirers with their free spirits and "nifty" street smarts, as they grow up and ultimately find friendship and a place where they belong.
