Disney presents an unforgettable musical adventure as Oliver, an adorable stray kitten (voiced by Joey
Lawrence), takes Manhattan by storm! When Dodger (Billy Joel), a street-smart mutt with a weakness for
mischief, befriends the homeless tabby, he introduces his new pal to his pack of pickpocket pooches, run by
the nefarious Sykes (Robert Loggia). Just as Oliver is about to begin a life of crime, he is rescued by a rich girl named Jenny, who takes him home to live in luxury with her and her spoiled poodle Georgette (Bette Midler). But when Sykes finds out about Oliver’s new benefactor, he hatches a plot to abscond with the little girl and hold her for ransom. The courageous kitty and his newfound friends must race to the rescue in an electrifying chase through the city's labyrinthine subway system in order to bring Jenny home. Brimming with music, humor and adventure, Oliver & Company is sure to delight the entire family.
