Oliver & Company streets onto Blu-ray, bringing renewed interest to this often-overlooked feature with singing dogs on streetcars and a sinister smoking scoundrel. Not your average Disney film by any means, but not one to totally dismiss either. Here is my Blu-ray review of the 25th anniversary edition of Oliver & Company.

Spin Oliver Twist on its tail by replacing the orphan boy with a lone kitten, add in some canines, modern-world contemporary issues, and the Big Apple, and you have Oliver & Company.
