And what kind of person would steal an innocent little kitty?
Well, I... I mean, he... He might be up against a stone wall, at the end of his rope.

He must have been a poor, desperate man.
It's still wrong. I'm scared. I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do.

OK, I've seen this movie for the first time when I was 6 years old... This movie was actually made in 1988, the year I was born I haven't seen it in 11 years, and now I'm 17 I love this movie even more then I did before!
The songs are lovely, and the story is really heartwarming!! The dutch version of this movie is just as funny as the English is! My favorite character is Dodger, because he's the "cool street dog" and Oliver is just cute!!
I know I'm a real Disney freak and this movie really belongs to one of my favorites!!!
