Frequently Bought Together
A cuddly little orphaned kitten finds himself on the streets of New York, where he finds friendship with a group of pickpocketing dogs. He becomes involved in the dogs' fun and games, but must face reality when the girl who wants to adopt Oliver is kidnapped by the evil Fagin. This is Disney's animated musical animal-based version of Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist'.
Disney does Dickens in this animated version of Oliver Twist, in which a homeless New York City cat falls in with a bunch of mischievous dogs under the leadership of the appealing scoundrel Fagin. The roots of Disney's success with animation in the 1990s begins with this clever, energetic, atmospheric movie, which succeeds in capturing the grim world Dickens conjured. Lyricist Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid) worked on the songs, the best of which is sung by Billy Joel, who provides the voice of (the Artful) Dodger. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Oliver and Company has been given a quality treatment and the DVD boasts the new technology with an animated menu and sound (not just a static picture). From the menu you can choose your various options including the well-endowed Bonus Features section.
The Bonus Features are fitting and plentiful including a lovely animated short (cartoon) called 'Puss Café' from Disney's Golden Age. The 14 page extensive gallery with conceptual art, character development and layouts makes for good viewing and is a rare peak in to the wonderful making of the film progress which is also documented in an ample featurette.
In addition to these features Disney have also included a short featurette on the theatrical re-release of the film as well as a featurette on the animation of Disney animals throughout Disney history - a gem of a bonus on this disc.
In true Disney style, as on R1 DVD releases, the DVD also has two Sing Along features.
The presentation, detail and consideration that has gone in to this DVD release sets a high standard for the new wave of UK DVDs from Disney. The included documentaries feature interviews with Bette Midler and Billy Joel et al. and are padded with interesting information which fans will welcome.
This film is a historic one for Disney - just note the trial of CGI and rebirth of Disney magic under the omniscient eye of Roy Disney in his foundation attempts to regain dwindling love for the House of Mouse.
A winning feature with no flaws - and many paws.
The plot is somewhat based on Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist; Imagine a modern setting: New York City, but the characters being portayed as Animals (Stray Dogs and Cats, respectively), while some (Fagin and Sykes) remain as humans, albeit Fagin is a down-and-out and Sykes is a debt collector of some description. Imagine all of the above and you will have a reasonable idea of what the film is like (brilliant, in my opinion).
The casting in this movie is one of Disney's best; Pop singers Billy Joel and Bette Midler (the legend... Dorris Holland, check yourself out in this one, haha... Private Joke on my part!) are superbly cast as Dodger and Georgette, respectively. Also, Robert Loggia is amazing as Sykes (although, I must caution, some younger viewers may find him a little scary... Parents Beware!). Finally, the character of Tito is one of Disney's most lovable, funny and memorable characters, the utmost credit to the actor for his portrayal!
Finally, I must dictate that this is a movie that the kids will love; I have the fondest of memories myself of growing up and listening to my mother singing all the songs ('Why Should I Worry', 'Perfect Isn't Easy', etc. etc.) featured here... also, the kids will in no doubt be educated on one of the finest lessons in life: the importance of building a teamwork of friends and retain that eternally.
So, without further ado, get buying and Happy Viewing!
