I never did get to see this one when it came out 25 years ago. I was in college at the time. So, seeing it on Blu-Ray, this was my first time. This movie took me back in time, though. It’s an 80’s music explosion mixed with an old Dickens’ tale about an orphan who finds a home. Disney is able to make this combination work perfectly by making the Oliver Twist characters animals instead of humans, but there are humans that adopt Oliver and Company.

The Making of Oliver and Company
In the heart of New York City, Oliver, a mischievous orphaned kitten, is befriended by Dodger, a carefree pooch and his ragtag family of misfit mutts. Life gets even better for Oliver when he is adopted by a lonely little girl named Jenny. But when tough guy Sykes and his Doberman sidekicks try to keep Jenny and Oliver apart, the spirited kitten and his newfound friends discover the meaning of courage and find a home where they truly belong.
