Puss in Boots (長靴をはいた猫, Nagagutsu o Haita Neko?, literally The Cat Who Wore Boots) is a 1969 Japanese animated feature film adaptation of Charles Perrault's fairy tale of the same name. Hayao Miyazaki worked as a storyboard artist and key animator on the film. Miyazaki also wrote the manga adaptation, which was serialized in Chūnichi Shinbun Nichiyō Ban (Chunichi Newspaper Sunday Version).
The main character, Pero the cat is the mascot of Toei Animation. Pero's name is shortened from Perrault.
It was followed by two sequels, The Three Musketeers in Boots (ながぐつ三銃士, Nagagutsu Sanjūshi?) (1972) and Puss in Boots Travels Around the World (長靴をはいた猫 80日間世界一周, Nagagutsu o Haita Neko: Hachijū Nichikan Sekai Isshū?) (1976).
