More Details

Synopsis:
This animated Disney film, loosely based on Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist," revolves around a cute orphaned kitten named Oliver, who is given shelter by a streetwise gang of dogs. A human beggar named Fagin does his best to provide for these homeless (and tuneful) animals. But Fagin has a problem: he owes the wicked loan shark Sykes a lot of dough, and has only three days in which to cough it up. Oliver and the pooches take it upon themselves to help Fagin out of the doghouse. Meanwhile, Oliver is adopted by a lonely (and rich) girl named Jenny -- who Sykes later kidnaps. Can Oliver and his canine cohorts find a way to save both Fagin and Jenny?

Reviews:
"...Visuals and sound combine to vividly capture the Big Apple crunch from a feline's-eye view..." - 03/29/1996 USA Today, p.4D


"...A bright, upbeat comedy that should appeal to audiences of all ages....Scribner keeps the pace rapid and the camerawork unusually fluid for an animated feature..." - 11/18/1988 Los Angeles Times, p.C1
