    Though not on the epic scale of Fantasia or Bambi, Lady and the Tramp is one of the more charming animated features ever made and has depth enough to keep adults as well as children occupied, if not enthralled. [15 Feb 1986, p.C6]

    It's that rare movie that I will not only continue to enjoy as a moviegoer and all-around romantic, but recommend as a legitimate standard-bearer for the animated classics yet to come. show more
