|Title:||OLIVER AND COMPANY|
|Content:||(a little girl is kidnapped, later rescued by out critter heroes; the urban strays occasionally steal to survive, but the simple life lessons - friendship and self-sacrifice dominate the story)|
Loosely based on the Dickens classic Oliver Twist. The main characters are replaced by an orphaned kitty taken under paw by streetwise stray dogs. This lively musical production features the voice talents of Joey Lawrence, Billy Joel, Cheech Marin, Dom Deluise, Bette Midler, and Robert Loggia, with an upbeat score by Billy Joel, Huey Lewis and Ruben Blades.
Like KFC, Disney has secret ingredients. Certainly one of them is the sheer love that radiates from their finest productions. Never condescending, never phlegmatic, the simple messages of good vs. evil and the hope of an idyllic ever-after continues to enthrall audiences, young and old. Bravo, Disney! Oliver & Company is another gem!
