There’s just something about the animated classics featuring animals that tugs at my heartstrings. OK, so my husband thinks it’s a little sappy. I can’t help it. I became a hopeless romantic watching Lady and the Tramp share a plate of spaghetti. And the first time I ever cried over a movie was watching poor Fievel in “An American Tail.”
Equally heartwarming is the tale of Oliver, the homeless kitchen, who joins a band of dogs for an adventure of a lifetime in Walt Disney’s “Oliver and Company.” The 20th anniversary edition is out on DVD and here’s a chance to add it to your collection. Just click on “Comments” and tell us which animated classic focused on animals is your favorite and why.
(We’ll pull a winner’s name Sunday night. Meanwhile, congrats to Dan, who won last week’s “SpongeBob” giveaway.)
