Oliver & Company has finally been released from the Disney vault! Meet Oliver, a cute orange kitty who’s orphaned in the alleys of New York until he gets adopted by a group of musical mutts led by the street savvy, Dodger.

Paws-itively Cool

Oliver and Company is based on the classic Charles Dickens novel, Oliver Twist about an orphan trying to find his way in the world. Oliver teams up with Dodger to steal some much needed food from the hot dog vendor, but when the cat and dog team is successful, Dodger wraps the sausages around his neck and runs. Oliver is not ditched so easily, and quickly catches up with the greedy dog to demand his share. Dodger respects Oliver’s persistence and invites him into a gang of cool canines that includes Tito the Chihuahua, Einstein, Francis and Rita.

Award-Winning Songs

Since Billy Joel voices Dodger, you know you’re in for lots of great pop sing-along-songs like when Dodger hops from taxi cab to taxi cab and takes Oliver for an impromptu tour of NYC as he belts out “Why Should I Worry?” By the end of the song, Dodger has half the dogs in New York dancing behind him, and when you hear the catchy hooks, you’ll be right there with them! In fact, the song was nominated for a Golden Globe for for Best Original Song!


DVD Extras

Oliver’s Big City Challenge is an interactive game with seven tasks like answering trivia questions and counting sausages to win. The Making of Oliver and Company includes interviews with cast and crew and info on CG animation—the technology was very new when Oliver and Company came out in the 1980’s, but Disney was one of the first animation studios to start using it in their full-length films. The DVD also includes two animated shorts featuring Pluto the dog: Lend a Paw, the Academy Award-winning short and Puss Café, where two cats try to outwit poor Pluto.
