Disney does Dickens in this animated version of Oliver Twist, in which a homeless New York City cat falls in with a bunch of mischievous dogs under the leadership of the appealing scoundrel Fagin. The roots of Disney's success with animation in the '90s begins with this clever, energetic, atmospheric movie, which succeeds in capturing the grim world Dickens conjured. Lyricist Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid) worked on the songs, the best of which is sung by Billy Joel, who provides the voice of (the Artful) Dodger. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Disney's 27th animated classic does suffer from the fact that it was the last feature from the studio to hit before "The Little Mermaid." Of course this caused inevitable comparisons, and of course there is no competition between the two an any way.
"The Little Mermaid" is in fact a superior film, but the comparisons are unjust because each film is supposed to be very different.
The characters are all likable, with the exception of Tito the chiwaua who just goes over the top sometimes to the point of annoyance. The story is very contemporary, simple, and it works very well. The songs, although every 80's, are still catchy.
The animation in "Oliver & Company" consists of stylized backdrops of New York City and characters that seem flat and hard edged. The best older classic that you could compare it to was 1961s 101 Dalmatians. The film makers made a commendable effort in making this film feel true to it's setting, and moreover give us NYC through a dog's perspective. The film's artists actually endured strange glances from New Yorkers, as they squatted or laid down on the sidewalks to draw the city from a dog's eye level. It's also a great kick to see all the animated human characters on the streets in 80's fashions. ( O/T Seriously, what were designers thinking back then? ) The Twin Towers also make a bittersweet appearance.
"Oliver & Company" also was the first Disney film to extensively use computers. Whereas "The Great Mouse Detective" used computers for the impressive Big Ben sequence, in "Oliver" the computer is used more. The cars, the subway and many other elements are impressive uses of the new technology, which led the way for everything from The Flying Carpet in "Aladdin" to the ballroom sequence in "Beauty and the Beast.

Oliver & Company is a new twist on an Old story. This one has a little flare and music with a lot of personality. The story is around the street of New York City. And to let you know the emotional impact, it opens with an animated aerial view of the Manhattan Skyline - which includes the World Trade Center buildings. (This movie was made in 1988)
My favorite character - besides Oliver's innocence, is Bette Midler and Cheech Marin. They steel the scenes with their wit and humor. Very sharp and emotional are their deliveries of the lines.
The kids will relate to the young girl finding her new kitten and the adults can relate to those every threatening debts we all seem to have. The music is fun, but not consistent. (By this I mean all the songs are from different writers - there is no common thread in the music and songs.)
I enjoyed this movie a lot. My favorite Disney of all time is still The Little Mermaid. The DVD Extras are great for the kids and the behinds the scenes the adults will find interesting.

Before the success of such phenomenal Disney musicals like Beauty and the Beast and the Little Mermaid, Oliver & Company came along. This film totally embodies the eighties with its music, voice talent, and art direction. The music is very good. The songs are very hip and cool. The animation is exciting, and the plot grabs you and sometimes you feel as if you are watching a regular caper movie than an animated film. An exciting Disney ride that is fun for everybody. I highly reccomend this film.

Really, I liked this movie a lot (it's one of my favorites), however, why does it seem to me like dobermans are always the bad guys? Being my favorite breed of dogs, dobermans are almost always (if not always) given a bad rep in the movies, and I don't think it's very nice. Maybe if there were a couple nice dobes in movies out there, people wouldn't misjudge them as much as they do.

One of my all time favorite Disney Animated flicks is now on DVD to own and i bought it the other day!
This 1988 Animated feature was a hit that lead to the successes of other Disney Hits but this was never released on Video but got a re-issue in theaters and on Video. I still remembered when i was 6 years old back in 1988 when i was living in Omaha Nebraska, i was treated to see this movie and i saw it twice. But then it got re-issued back into theaters in 1996, i loved it again, it's basically about a orphaned Kitten named Oliver who hangs out with a gang that steals but he finds himself in a series of adventures.
A highly entertaining Animated feature on a great DVD, the DVD is fully loaded with a Scrapbook that includes pics of the original Poster artworks and concepts of characters, Theaterical Trailers, Original 1988 TV Spot, Documentaries, Two Sing-along songs, and Two Cartoon Shorts.
The transfer on this DVD is stunning, the picture is perfect without a single speck of grain and dirt and the sound quality is pheomeneonal, this is a must own DVD for Disney and animation lovers.

Disney's retelling of _Oliver Twist_ contains equal parts street smarts and kiddie schmaltz. Although the film starts out with energy and attitude to spare, it slowly runs out of steam.
The film is worth a rental for the terrific voice talent: Billy Joel as a scruffy "Artful Dodger," Bette Midler as a diva doggie, and Cheech Marin as a bug-eyed chihuahua. Too bad the film's other characters -- including, sadly, the nominal protagonist -- are so bland and colorless in comparison.
_Oliver & Company_ marks several "firsts" for the Disney studio. It was the first cartoon feature to make extensive use of computer animation. It was also the first Disney film to feature a song with lyrics by Howard Ashman (and for all you trivia buffs, that song is the unmemorable "Once Upon a Time in New York City," sung by Huey Lewis).
I'll end this review with a warning: Cheech Marin's performance takes every negative Hispanoamerican stereotype known to humankind and works it to the wall. Most of the shtick is clearly improvised, a lone-gun variation on Cheech and Chong's infamous "stoner" comedy of the '70s and early '80s. Is it funny? Yes, but it's still deeply offensive. Buyer beware.
