We found three dimes and seven nine pennies on our walk this morning

The topic: Oliver & Co

Okay, I told ya last week I was going to watch this and review.  I watched it last night, here’s my review.

I liked it, it was an okay movie.  A little dated, a little sad (the Twin Towers, still standing). 

The musical numbers were fun, the dogs had me laughing.  The beginning, with the kittens for sale and one lone kitten not getting a new home, but being left in the cardboard box and then the skies opening up and the rain coming down had me in tears.  What can I say, I’m a softie for a red kitten, who nobody wanted, left to fend for itself in the pouring rain.  My thoughts were “I’d like to find the effing morons who left those kittens there and give them a piece of my mind!”

I had to keep reminding myself “it’s just a movie, it’s just a movie….”

But it got better, it got lots better and the music was good, toe tapping good, Bette Midler as Georgette was right on and I wanted to reach right up and grab Tito and bring him home.  But then I’ve always had a crush on Cheech Marin. 

It’s not a long movie and like most Disney movies, there is a lesson to be learned and a happy ending.

The extras…

There are a couple of tunes from the movie, a few Disney shorts, a game and a scrapbook, just to name a few of the available bonus features. 

I found the scrapbook most interesting.  It has the concept art, storyboard art, all the way through to the publicity.  Helps to understand how these things come to be.  I used to like visiting the Gallery above Pirates at Disneyland, where you could see concept art and I miss it. 

I tried my hand at the game and it’s pretty easy, good for kids.  A learning experience, but they’ve made it fun.

All in all, I recommend this video.

Two paws up!

The official release date is next Tuesday, February 3rd.

Oliver and Company (20th Anniversary Edition) is in pre-order status on Amazon right now.

I’ve never seen this.

That kitten in the rain scene would have done me in too.

I think Lion King is my all time fave Disney movie.  I saw that at the movies with Jimmy four times, and then oh, probably another 500 times when we got the VHS tape.  He liked it too.

Good review.

Have you read about ‘Dewey Readmore Books’?  I started reading his book last night, and had a terrible time putting it down.  Beautiful orange cat, eight weeks old dumped in a library chute, had frostbite on his feet, and loved people. 

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the book.  Not enough pictures of Dewey.

This sounds really cute.  Is it in the stores?

They had Dewey pictues on Caturday a couple of weeks back.  Adorable kitty.  I have a stack of books a mile high to read but Dewey is mandatory!  lol!

It is in stores now.  It is also on Amazon, if you want to ‘see’ the book.  He was quite a character, and so was the town he lived in.  the woman who wrote the book, and was his Mom, did an excellent job of storytelling.  I haven’t finished it yet, but it is really difficult to put down at night.
