This visually eye-catching Disney movie is in a league of it’s own. Disney always puts such impeccable details into their animations and the true to life mannerisms of their characters is always sincere and believable --- even if all of the main characters seem to be of the animal kingdom. I say this without hesitation; this story is one of Disney’s finest. As you listen to the catchy little tunes and watch the vivid colors pop before your eyes and the plot is quite enjoyable the characters different in statute come together and have no partialities but are one in nature, you will sit in awe of this masterpiece. A scoundrel meets up with a pedigree Cocker Spaniel and the love bug hit them and doggoned it is puppy love.
LADY AND THE TRAMP is the sweetest starry-eyed tale between a street-smart mutt and an uppity pedigree Cocker Spaniel. Although this isn’t Charles Dickens poverty-stricken story, it is an endearing tale about an abandoned dog that finds his dinner in trashcans and alleyways, named Tramp. Tramp meets a pup from uptown in the ritzy neighborhood named Lady.
This aristocratic pooch’s master has a new arrival in the house, a new baby. Aunt Sarah (Verna Felton) comes to tend the new infant. Busybody Aunt Sarah brings with her, flotsam and jetsam Siamese Cats named Si & Am. Those sinister cats, Si & Am steal the show. The little ditty “Siamese Cat” by Peggy Lee is hilariously ridiculous and fits the ornery duo. The little bratty cats cause more trouble then they are worth. Lady gets blamed for their mischief and is fitted for a muzzle. Sadly Lady runs away from home. She comes across a vagabond mutt named Tramp; he shows her the ropes of the streets and how to survive by the skin of her paws.
Lady (Barbara Luddy) and the Tramp (Larry Roberts) develop a romance that seems more than puppy love. I mean goodness-sakes -alive, when the guy gives the gal the meatball in the spaghetti dinner; then you know just how much he cares. During that romantic spaghetti dinner “Bella Notte” is definitely the score to eat to, cheers. Nothing was sweeter than when both Tramp and Lady have their famous most memorable scene of munching on the same spaghetti noodle as their noses meet. That goes down in history as the most romantic scene caught on film.
And is there a dry eye in the house when the dogcatcher nabs Trusty? With the help of Tramp’s good OLE pound buddies Trusty (Bill Baucom) and Jack (Bill Thompson) they pups save the day.
In Dolby Digital Stereo the tunes "He's a Tramp," "What's a Baby," "Peace on Earth," “Belle Notte,” and "The Siamese Cat Song" come through crisp and clean. The audio is good enough for this flick.
There are a few features packaged in this DVD and I do say very few: Two features to mention those:
Full-Color Character Artwork on Disc Widescreen format 2.35:1 Closed captioned [cc]
Although this DVD is not jam-packed with extras it is filled with adventure galore and mix a little adventure with romance and how can you go wrong? Lady becomes leash-free and fancy-free with her charismatic stud-muffin Tramp. Bow-Wow, enjoy this marvelous love story!
I bought this DVD as a present for my 19 month old daughter. She likes Disney movies, and we were looking for one that wouldn't scare her (because then she refuses to watch it at all). Lady and the Tramp was exactly what we were looking for. It isn't one of her favorites right now (which would be a tough feat to top the three that we constantly watch), but she will accept this one as an option and Daddy and I enjoy it.
I like that it is Blue Ray and DVD. We have a Blue Ray player at home, but they are not available everywhere we might go on vacation and we can't play Blue Ray in the vehicle like a DVD. So this is the best of both worlds.
We try to limit screen time because our daughter is so young, but Friday night movie night is one of her favorite times of the week. We make a pallet on the floor, eat cookies, and watch a movie. We are so glad that Lady in the Tramp is now a part of our family tradition.
The Lady and the Tramp is a classic disney tale of two dogs who develop a friendship. Its an interesting disney piece because it is filmed at the level of the actual dogs, so while watching the movie you get a better sense of focus on the dogs in the film. Effective strategy. Kids will love this one.
This is my favorite 'all-animal' Disney movie- where the main focus of the plot is brought down to the level of our four-legged friends. I really this type of genre of Disney movies (Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, etc.) where all of the animation was painted by hand- it really makes the storyline come to life. I had bought it on DVD because I was conforming all of my VHS to DVD since that is what the norm is now. This movie is FANTASTIC for children and anyone who is a dog-loving child at heart.
This has to be one of my most favorite movies from Disney.
Of course all the classics from Disney are just that classics, but this movie through the eyes of animated dogs and people is completely heart warming and contains all the emotions that any age group can identify with.
I can't express how much I love this movie, it is one that any person or family with a heart should own.
Fantastic movie and one the the best ever made by anyone!!!
I bought this product so I can see if this film has been digitally remastered for picture and sound, and it is. I love the restored picture and sound. I hate those Siamese cats, though. It looks better than other movies bceause you can watch it in English, Spanish, and French.
RATING FOR FILM NOT TERRIBLE NON RELEASE OF DVD PACKAGE
The beloved 1955 film. Have always loved the film, great music and of course the famous scene from the film.
I have been complaining about this since Disney started this-NOT putting their classic films out in a straight DVD release the same time as the blu ray.
Hey Disney, 1. I can NOT afford more expensive blu-ray discs & 2. I can NOT afford a blu-ray player
I so hope Disney looses sales again because of this.
Since the film begins and ends at Christmas so why wasn't this film released in November or December for holiday purchases?
You are forced to buy this when you only have a DVD player & you get NO EXTRAS so you have a blu ray disc Frisbee. Completely useless and a huge waste of your money.
Disney-some people can NOT afford blu ray players or more expensive discs, so RETURN TO RELEASING DVD'S.
The movie played fine, but my intent was to buy an original, brand new "lady and the tramp" DVD. Instead I got a packaged dvd, appearring to be brand new, but when opened the dvd stickers are faded and appear to be burnt movie copies...which is very disappointing since it is going towards my infant cousins collection of ORIGINAL Disney DVD's...it played fine and he enjoyed the movie...but unfortunately now I will not be able to trust, so no longer will make Disney DVD purchases on Ebay...I did not get what was advertised....unfortunately since was a gift...did not know until after had already done the distributors review...and no returns were accepted anyways.
Who doesnt love Lady and the Tramp? This Classic fairy tale was amazing.. and now on DVD? Whats not to love. Great kids movie. Disney did an amazing job with this and definatly needs to be more of these types of movies.
This is one you definitely have to have on DVD. Great for the whole family. Great animation. I love this movie!
