Personally I have not been as excited for a movie to be re-released from Disney more than Lady and the Tramp. This was the first Disney animated movie that I ever saw, and it holds a very special place in my heart. I remember vividly seeing that iconic scene with of Lady and the Tramp sharing the plate of spaghetti outside Tony’s. When I heard it was going to be released for the 50th anniversary, I couldn’t wait to share my daughters first time seeing it with her.
A classic love story unfolds in the best Disney tradition as a lovely young pedigreed cocker spaniel named Lady, who lives a pampered life, finds herself falling romantically for Tramp, an amorous street-smart pooch without prospects. Although they have fun together on several dates, including a sentimental spaghetti dinner by moonlight at Tony’s restaurant, their relationship is strained not only by Lady’s loyalty to her human family and their newborn baby, but by Tramp’s devil-may-care attitude that eventually gets Lady in trouble and tossed into the dog pound. However, good-hearted Tramp redeems himself by saving the baby from potential harm and thus wins Lady’s love and the affection of her human family.
When my little princess and I sat down to watch this Disney classic I was instantly brought back to my childhood. The timeless story is as wonderful today as it was 50 years ago, and the animation has never looked better. We sat through the entire movie watching happily in silence, which is rare for Zoe.
Overall, I love this movie as much as I did 30 years ago when I saw it for the first time. It’s unique, original story, and wonderful animation makes this a Disney classic that is a must have for anyone’s library.
Lady and the Tramp Diamond Edition is available now in stores.
