Thomas O'Malley is the male protagonist in Disney's 1970 feature film, The Aristocats. He was voiced by the late Phil Harris in the original film, and by Steven Curtis Chapman in House of Mouse.


Thomas O'Malley comes off as a smooth-talking, streetwise cat who relishes his life of freedom out in the open with no rules and no responsibilities. All of this changes when he meets Duchess for the first time.

He falls in love with Duchess when he first meets her and he quickly starts flirting with and serenading her.

Although he was obviously a little turned off by the fact that Duchess has kittens, but he and the kittens quickly grow on each other and he becomes like a father to them.

Also, when faced with an adversity, O'Malley will indeed rise to the occasion to protect the ones that he cares for and loves.

The Aristocats

In the film, O'Malley appears after Edgar kidnaps and tries to get rid of the cats, but is chased off by a couple of dogs. He is instantly attracted to Duchess because of her appearance, but is slightly put off when he learns that she has children.

However, he soon has a change of heart and helps Duchess and her children get back to Paris safely. During their return to Paris, he becomes smitten with Duchess once again and starts being fond of her children as well as her.

In the big fight scene, he and the Alley cats battle Edgar as he tries to send Duchess and her kittens to Timbuktu. He saves Duchess and the kids and becomes a part of the family.


  • Thomas has become the subject of a popular internet meme about an infamous episode of the UK Gameshow Family Fortunes, in which presenter Max Bygraves asks the question, "Name a famous Irishman". Thomas O'Malley was one of the infamous stupid answers.
  • In the Italian dub of The Aristocats, Thomas is known as "Romeo". He's Roman and his most famous sentence is "Io so' Romeo, er mejo der Corosseo" ("I am Romeo, the best of the Colosseum").
