During one of these criminal acts, Oliver meets a wealthy young girl named Jenny Foxworth. This meeting will forever change his life.Written by

Near the beginning of the movie, when Oliver climbs out of the gutter during the rainstorm, the "Kitties Need Home" sign is visible in the close-up, but disappears in the wide shot. Also Oliver moves from near the curb to a few feet in on the sidewalk. See more »

Both theatrical releases and the 1996 home media releases contained the last 11 seconds of the film's end credits music playing over the closing Walt Disney Pictures logo, but further releases from the 2002 VHS and DVD releases onward remove those last seconds of the end credits music from the closing Walt Disney Pictures logo.

A truly touching and hilarious adaptation of Oliver Twist
We've seen a musical version of Oliver, even an animated series, but an animated musical with a cast of dogs and kitten called Oliver set in New York, you'd think it would be a disaster. But, thanks to Disney magic, this film is a classic filled with songs that are never forgotten as well as that wonderful combination of comedy and family drama.
When a homeless kitten comes across a street-wise dog with a gift for song and stealing hot dogs, little Oliver finds himself the member of an exclusive gang of thieving dogs. But before he even executes his first crime, he is discovered by a lonely little girl in need of a friend. Chaos soon ensues as Jenny and Oliver get caught up in a kidnapping by the classic evil villain.
It's a fun filled romp to be enjoyed by one and all over and over again.
