Product Description

Product Description

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'.

From Amazon.co.uk

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.

This Disney release is a joy - especially considering the poor film-only DVD releases of late on Region 2 format.
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.

In the 1980's the Disney studios released a handful of very good animated features, but the one given the most credit is The Little Mermaid. Oliver and company was released a year or so before the Little Mermaid (though many people believe the re-release was the original release, same goes for Great Mouse Detective). This rendition of Oliver Twist replaces the main character with an abandoned Kitten in 1980's New York. The story is pretty simple, but well executed with great songs, and an 80's favorite of mine, Billy Joel, as the canine version of the Artful Dodger. Changing the characters to adorable, modernized animals in my opinion was a great boost to the original story, in making it much easier to stick with without getting bored. I can watch any and all versions of a Christmas Carol without blinking, but it's easier to be picky with Dicken's other works. Disney once again uses it's enormous ability at improving stories and comes out with a very cute and entertaining film well worth owning on DVD. I'm glad to see it's finally being released in this format, and even happier to see that it will be including several of the kind of extras I LOVE getting on Disney DVD's. They're making major improvements compared to their first DVD releases which had NO extras. I'm looking forward to seeing more and more Disney Titles on DVD, especially the classic stuff, and the difficult to find old television stuff that can only be caught on the Disney Channel on ocassion if at all. I only wish they would stop the editing they sometimes do to their classic films because of stupid Political Correctness. Tampering with TV and movie history is equal with book burning!

Quite simply, this film is one from the Disney Vault; I have read how some people do not like this at all (they feel that this is where Disney Studios went "off the track", if one will, which is fine... everybody has an opinion which must be respected whether we like it or not, and that's life). For me though, this truly is one of Disney's animated Classics and which fully deserves more credit that it actually gets!

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!

This seems to be one of those Disney films that is often forgot or overlooked. That is a shame as this is a really good film and like all Disney films very watchable and enjoyable. For those who haven't seen it this is basically a Disney film version of the Charles Dickens classic story Oliver Twist. Children will definitley love it as will the majority of Disney fans. This is no means up there with Lion King etc but it is still a really good film to watch with the usual good songs and story with a life lesson.
