Trivia

Early in the film's development it was decided that it would be a sequel to The Rescuers (1977). The producers then decided that the story wasn't convincing and started from scratch. The only things left are the New York setting and a few similarities between Jenny and Penny. See more »

Goofs

After snagging the hot dogs, Dodger and Oliver walk through the cement. The string of hot dogs is clearly dragging through the cement. When they show Dodger from a distance, only paw prints are present and there is no sign of the hot dogs being dragged. See more »

Quotes

Oliver: What kind of work do we do anyway?
Tito: Investment banking, man. Didn't you read about us in the Wall Street Journal?
Oliver: Really?
Francis: [chucking] Yes. Captains of Industry.

I Love this movie
16 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think this is one of the greatest Disney films ever, yet it does not get much credit. I mean films like, Toy Story, Cinderella, etc, can be seen often on TV. But I've never seen Oliver and Company on TV, have you? I am 13 and originally viewed it at 6. I loved it then and love it more now! I must have watched it about 100,000,000 times!!!! And I got the soundtrack and am playing now as we speak. My fave character is Dodger, the streetwise, quick talking mutt. I used to jump about on my sofa pretending to be him jumping form car to car. Hey? What's cooler than a dog getting around by standing on a car? I always sing-a-long and I am always being told to be quiet as I am singing sooooo loud my parents can't hear the TV!!!! The songs are all stuck in my head with super-strong superglue! I especially like Why Should I worry and Streets of Gold. Dodger and Rita are so cool. I really love this movie and recommend it!!!!!!!
