Synopsis
On the streets of New York City, an adorable orphaned kitten named Oliver finds friendship and adventure with a pack of pickpocket pooches - including Dodger, a cool canine with street savoir faire, a hilarious, fiery Chihuahua named Tito, and their human master Fagin. But when Jenny - the lonely little girl who adopts Oliver - is kidnapped by fagin's evil boss and a pair of daunting Dobermans, it's non-stop action and suspense as Oliver & Company stage a daring rescue through the city's subway system.

Set against the dramatic skylines of modern day New York City, this contemporary re-telling of CHarles Dickens' classic novel, "Oliver Twist", includes five outstanding new songs performed by top rock and pop artists such as Billy Joel, Bette Midler and Huey Lewis.

Oliver & Company heralded an exciting period of growth and creativity at the Walt DIsney Studios, with a new breed of animators ably filling the shoes of some of their retiring masters. This was the first animated feature to be commissioned by Disney's recently appointed chief executive officer, Michael Eisner, and it was under his fresh new management style that these talented individuals were given the freedom to innovate and expand their art-form. The film's release on 18 November 1988 presented a new genearation of audiences with a foretaste of delights to come, such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.

Overflowing with brilliant animation and loveable characters, Oliver & Company is a modern masterpiece that richly deserves a place in every DIsney enthusiast's collection.
