In early 2000, Oliver & Company was originally intended to be a Gold Classic Collection title, with a release date of November 7, 2000, but was delayed to June 5, 2001, and eventually, instead, it was released on DVD as a Special Edition on May 14, 2002. It was later replaced by a new 20th Anniversary Edition in 2009.
Inspired by the Charles Dickens novel, "Oliver Twist," Oliver & Company is the thrilling animated classic full of action, friendship, courage and heart that starts when Oliver, the orphaned kitten, is befriended by Dodger, the cool mutt from a New York pack of pickpocket pooches. Soon, Oliver is lovingly adopted by Jenny, a lonely little rich girl, until tough-guy Sykes and his Doberman sidekicks try to keep Jenny and Oliver apart. Now it's up to Oliver, Dodger and all his colorful, street-smart canine pals to outwit the villains and rescue the girl-- in an electrifying chase that will leave you breathless! Filled with laughter, loyalty and paw-tapping music by Billy Joel, Huey Lewis, and Bette Midler -- Oliver & Company is family fun you'll love watching over and over again.
