All-New! Oliver's Big City Challenge Game

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Based on Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist," Disney's Oliver and Company was one of the first animated features to incorporate computer images with traditional hand-drawn animation and features the music and voice talents of pop-music giants like Billy Joel, Huey Lewis, and Bette Midler. A traditional story set in the modern world, Oliver and Company is the story of a stray kitten who wanders the streets of New York in search of a loving family. When Oliver encounters a street-wise dog named Dodger, the dog begins to teach him about life in the big city and takes him home to his family of street dogs and their master Fagan. Fagan and his dogs Dodger, Tito, Einstein, Francis, and Rita must often resort to thievery just to survive and during a particularly daring caper, Oliver gets separated from the other dogs and winds up meeting Jenny, a young rich girl with a big heart. As Oliver revels in Jenny's affection and begins to feel like part of her family, the dogs set out to rescue Oliver thinking he's been kidnapped. Eventually both Oliver and Jenny end up in grave danger and the only way Fagan and his dogs can save them is by doing what's right. As fresh on its 20th anniversary as it was when it premiered in 1988, this time-tested film appeals to children and adults of all ages. Bonus features include the Mickey Mouse and Pluto shorts "Lend a Paw" and "Puss Café" as well as a 5-1/2-minute making of featurette in which director George Scribner and animator Glen Kean describe the then brand new technique of blending computer and hand-drawn animation. Also included are sing-along versions of "Why Should I Worry? and "Streets of Gold," an interactive game, fun film facts, and an Oliver and Company scrapbook featuring concept art, storyboards, and publicity materials. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

UPC:786936769739
DESCRIPTION: A timeless classic inspired by Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist, Oliver & Company is a fun-filled, action-packed musical adventure voiced and sung by one of the most talented casts in Disney history!
The film artfully blends lovable characters, cool songs, and action-packed adventure into a contemporary classic. 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 and the musical talents of Billy Joel, Bette Midler, and Huey Lewis -- and overflowing with brilliant animation, Oliver & Company is a modern masterpiece.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Disney classic gets the DVD treatment October 12, 2005
Format:DVD
During the 80's, the studio hit an artistic, creative, and commercial slump. However, I still find that I quite enjoy Disney's 80's films, many of which experimented with computer animation, non-musical storylines, and different source materials. One of my favorite pre-Little Mermaid 80's Disney films is Oliver and Company. Boasting a soundtrack filled with great songs and a wonderful cast of characters, Oliver and Company finally gets the DVD treatment, albeit a less-than-stellar one.

For one, the transfer is good, but it could be much better and it has a fair amount of grain.

The bonus features could have been much better as well. A few fluff EPK-type featurettes, which are nice, but still fluffy, are sadly enough the meat of the bonuses. Also included, fortunately, are the original trailer, original TV spot, and the 1995 re-release trailer. Two sing-alongs are included as well as two classic Disney short cartoons.

Overall, it's nice to see Oliver and Company on DVD at last. This is probably the best DVD edition Disney will give it for at least a while, so if you're considering picking it up, go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absotively, Posolutely Wonderful! July 5, 2001
Format:DVD
Poor, abandoned kitten Oliver is homeless on the streets of 1980s New York City, until he meets a streetwise dog named Dodger. The cool canine takes Oliver under his wing and, with the help of the rest of his all-dog pickpocket gang, begins to teach him how to survive on the wrong side of the law. But when one of their con jobs goes awry, Oliver ends up in the hands of a sweet, lonely, little rich girl named Jenny. Suddenly, Oliver is living the high-life in a Fifth Avenue penthouse, much to the chagrin of Jenny's prize-winning, pampered poodle, Georgette. When the old gang shows up to rescue Oliver from his ritzy new life, they're disappointed to find that he wants to stay with Jenny. Their human ringleader, Fagin, however, is more than happy to send Oliver home, if he can get a healthy ransom in the process. Fagin isn't really a bad guy, he's just one step above homeless and has a really nasty loan-shark breathing down his neck. Jenny shows up on the dark and dangerous docks to pay Oliver's ransom and rescue her little kitty, and her sadness is too much for Fagin to take, but loan-shark Sykes has no troubles from a conscience and sees a chance to make even more dirty money. He snatches up Jenny and plans to hold HER for ransom! Suddenly, Oliver, Dodger, Fagin and the gang find themselves on a desperate rescue mission to save Jenny from the ruthless Sykes and his bloodthirsty Doberman Pinschers, Roscoe and Desoto, and even Georgette is getting in on the heroic action!

There's no doubt about it, Disney's wonderfully charming classic "Oliver and Company" is one of the most dated animated films you'll ever see. Of course, that's a big part of its charm. What could be more "`80s" than 1980s New York City? How about the music of Billy Joel and Huey Lewis?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best movie ever May 27, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been dying to get this movie for a while. When I got it I watched and I STILL cried in the appropriate spots (and Im almost 30). I remember watching this movie in the theater with my Grandma in NY and even with her gone I have this movie to help me bring back those memories. It is a classic disney movie and I will love watching it over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the contemporary Disney Films October 26, 2000
This is one of the only Disney films that I felt didn't insult children's intelligence and the stars that agreed to be in this film knew it. Bette Midler, Billy Joel and others agreed that this film would become a classic and they were right. The music is contemporary in flavor but still appealing to young people. The retelling of Dicken's tale in the big city is the perfect way to present this story to young people. Kudos to Disney.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Disney's Best! March 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Personally, I think that Oliver and Company is a great family film. It has touching moments, and plenty of laughs along the way. From Dodger's carefree city attitude to Tito's hyperness, I'd say that this movie has an excellent cast of charachters. My personal favorite is Einstien, but then again, I love 'em all! This ranks up to the high stats of the Lion King, and Mulan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first time! August 25, 2003
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie last night ( Again) and I loved it!I hadn't seen since I was little, and I'm 12 now. My favorite song is, "Why should I worry?" but I think the 1st song dragged on and on ( and I don't like songs that do that) You may be suprised, but Dodger's not my favorite dog! I love Rita because she reminds me of my best friends, Callie and Kirstie. I can't believe someone called Tito annoying! he's my 2nd favorite!

Any Edits?
No edits that I noticed. The movie looked exactly the same as it did in theaters 20 years ago, cigar smoking villian and all... And Disney does not edit that much stuff. Little Mermaid wasn't edited... Grim or whatever his name is still smokes his pipe. 101 dalmatians still has cruella... Read More

Blu-ray?
I believe that only the platinum editions are getting the bluray treatment for now... as far as the animated classics go. Sleeping Beauty was the first and now its pinnohchio.
