Like many of the early Disney feature-length cartoons, this doggy animated classic has stood the test of time, and also has enough deft humour to keep adults as entertained as their junior companions.
For those with rusty memories, this is the one about the pampered spaniel, Lady, who ends up on the mean streets with vagrant hound Tramp after she mistakenly believes her owners don’t want her any more.
While the shared spaghetti-eating scene between the pair still ranks as one of the cutest romantic scenes in movie history (human and non-human), the most entertaining moments are actually sidebars to the main story – the manic tree-chomping beaver, the arrival of those malevolent Siamese cats and, of course, Peggy Lee (as Tramp’s sexy pal) being as seductive as an animated dog can be singing ‘He’s a Tramp’. Simply gorgeous.
