Not one of Disney's best but not quite their worst
on 15 June 2010
From Disney's wilderness period after the departure of studio chief and Walt's son-in-law Ron Miller and before Alan Menken and Howard Ashman revitalised their animated features, until Treasure Planet came along this was a pretty safe bet for Disney's worst animated feature. Short but not terribly sweet, it's a very unconvincingly watered down canine and feline version of Oliver Twist relocated to a lazily animated 1980s New York: Oliver's a kitten, Dodger's a street dog, Fa gin is a warm-hearted dog lover in hock to loan shark Sykes. And an hour after watching it, that's probably all you'll remember about it. Oh, and the fact that the continuity is so bad that the Cheech Marin-voiced Chihuahua's chewed up ear keeps on changing from left to right. Even the animation is nothing to write home about despite some once-groundbreaking early use of computer generated backgrounds. It's not terrible, but sadly the magic just isn't there.
Not much in the way of extras on the DVD - three brief featurettes, stills gallery and vintage cartoon Puss Cafe.
