Disney Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Oliver and Company!


The 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Edition of Oliver and Company is now on sale from Disney

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of a Disney classic with the stunning Blu-ray debut of Oliver And Company, featuring perfect picture and sound. Relive this charming animated adventure, packed with excitement, fun and unforgettable songs by Billy Joel, Bette Midler and Huey Lewis.

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.

Bonus Features:

Two Bonus Shorts – “Lend a Paw” – Academy Award-Winning Animated Short – Best Short Subject (Cartoon), 1941
– “Puss Cafe” – Animated Short
Disney Sing-Along Mode

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.

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
