Oliver scratches DeSoto (the doberman with the blue collar) on the nose, leaving a mark. The mark disappears shortly afterwards when the two dobermans corner Oliver. The cut then reappears after Dodger gets in their way to protect Oliver. This occurs about 22 minutes into the film. See more »

I just read the previous comment about this being a bad movie and that kind of indirectly hurt my feelings. It's just a nice little movie Disney made for pure entertainment and yes, it is directed toward children. It wasn't intended to be catered toward an adult audience. I also can't see how people can criticize such a nice little movie by picking on the animation and Disney's "incapabilities." Disney is awesome and can do whatever they want in a feature. Maybe they wanted to portray it the way they did. Besides, the focus of the movie is the story. And based on that, it's a touching tale. This will always be one of my favorite childhood movies and no criticism from other drippy movie reviewers will ever make me see it any differently.
