Disney's 27th full-length animated masterpiece is "Oliver" with a twist - artfully blending lovable characters, cool songs and action-packed adventure into a contmeporary classic that's "charming, funny, musical and thrilling!" (ABC-TV) Disney's hip high-energy tale begins in the concrete canyons of New York City, where Oliver, an adorable orphaned kitten, is befriended by Dodger, a carefree mutt with a certain street savoir faire. The mischievous little cat is welcomed by Dodger's pack of pickpocket pooches, including dim-witted Einstein, ravishing Rita and live-wire Tito. This ragtag family of misfits runs into trouble when the evil mastermind Sykes - aided by his two daunting Dobermans - schemes to kidnap the lonely little rich girl who just adopted Oliver! It's up to the brave kitten and his newfound friends to race to the rescue in an electrifying chase through the city's subway system. Boasting five outstanding original songs, the most famous musical talent of any Disney animated feature - including Billy Joel, Bette Midler and Huey Lewis - and overflowing with brilliant animation, Oliver & Company is a modern masterpiece you can now add to your Disney collection.
