GET YOUR PAWS ON CATS & DOGS GROUNDBREAKING DVD FEATURES All-New Special Feature Allows Viewers to Create New Identities for Their Own Pets BURBANK, CA (October 4, 2001) - With the highly anticipated VHS and DVD release of Warner Home Video's (WHV) Cats & Dogs set for October 16, families can anticipate all-new, groundbreaking special features, one of which will allow them to create new identities for their pets. Called "My Pet's Secret Identity," this sensational DVD ROM extra lets viewers place photos of dogs and cats from the film - as well as their own pets - into a variety of still scenes from the actual movie; they can also create secret pet identity badges to save, print and e-mail. Cats & Dogs is priced at $22.98 SRP on VHS and $26.98 SRP on DVD. Visitors to the www.catsanddogsmovie.com website, moreover, can get their paws on exclusive content - if they can provide the secret password! A total of 12 passwords will allow visitors to enter both the cat camp and the dog faction and can be obtained through traditional offline advertising (print and broadcast), various Internet sources, banner ads and on the site itself. Fans can access hilarious new material such as memos from the leaders of the Feline Liberation Front (FLF) and the Canine Intelligence Service (CIS), profiles of feline and canine operatives and new games/activities. Visitors who do not have passwords will be recruited by the FLF and CIS and can gain access to the "secret" information by demonstrating their knowledge of their furry friends. They're cunning. They're stealthy. They're waging a top-secret, ultra-high-tech struggle for global domination right under our noses. They're ... Cats & Dogs! Witness this epic "tail" of what happens when an eccentric professor (Jeff Goldblum) makes a discovery that could tip the age-old balance of pet-power. Now, an inexperienced young beagle pup named Lou (voiced by Tobey Maguire) is about to begin the ultimate mission im-paws-ible: to save humanity from a total cat-tastrophe! "WHV is thrilled to offer families a DVD edition of Cats & Dogs that is jam-packed with exciting special features," said Ewa Martinoff, WHV Vice President, Family Entertainment Marketing. "The groundbreaking 'My Pet's Secret Identity' DVD ROM extra is an exciting new feature that allows viewers to insert photos of their own pets into still scenes from the film."

Cats & Dogs also features the voice talents of Michael Clarke Duncan (Academy Award* nominee for The Green Mile; The Whole Nine Yards), Alec Baldwin (Pearl Harbor, The Hunt for Red October), Jon Lovitz (Saturday Night Live, The Critic) and Charlton Heston (Planet of the Apes).
