The story of two animals and their adventures. Milo, the cat, and Otis, the dog, are two animals who grew up together on the same farm. One day, the two are separated and begin a journey to find each other. The adventurous, and often perilous quest finds the two animals traveling across mountains, plains, and snow-covered lands searching for one another. Written by
The film was altered from its original Japanese release when it was brought to other countries. A large amount of footage of animals in dangerous, perilous situations (including scenes where it appears the animals are severely harmed and intentionally put into perilous situations) were removed to avoid controversy.

When the bear is in the river, he sees Milo float by in the wooden box. In the next scene, the bear is somehow again downstream of the box that just floated past him. See more »
Otis resumed his search for Milo. He saw in the distance an animal that he thought might be helpful.

I read once where it took the filmmakers four years to make this movie. I don't doubt it. It must have taken great patience to wait and train these animals to do some of these amazing scenes. Where have you ever seen a cat nursing on a pig or a dog hitching a ride on top of a sea turtle, etc.?
There are some incredible scenes involving a number of animals. The scenery here is pretty, too. All of the above means that adults should enjoy this as much as the kids. There is nothing offensive in this nothing....nothing.
Dudley Moore's storytelling narration is a bit annoying in the beginning but settles down and is just fine, even humorous in spots. Overall, he did a credible job. The movie is short but actually could have been better had it been trimmed another 10 minutes to about 80. If you love animals, you really have to check this film out. Even if don't, the footage is so unique it's worth a look.
