I got the opportunity to review Lady and the Tramp on blue ray. I got to share one of my all time favorite with my boys for the first time last night. They loved it. I have fond memories of sitting curled up on the couch with my blanket and popcorn.
For those that don’t know Lady and the Tramp is a Disney Classic. I has been released from the vault for the first time ever on Blu Ray. Lady lives the pampered life. As my son Nate says “she is a spoiled Dog!” Tramp is a street smart dog whose antics get Lady thrown into the pound. Despite their romantic spaghetti dinner at Tony’s and the fact that they love each other. Eventually Lady falls back in love with Tramp when he saves Lady’s owners baby from potential harm. He also gains the affection of her owners. This is a classic and one all should own.
Barbara Luddy plays Lady and Larry Roberts plays Tramp. Peggy Lee plays the following characters Darling, Si, Am and Peg. Lee millar voices Jim Dear and the dog catcher. Bill Baucom voices Jock (my favorite), Joe, Bulldog, Dachsie and the policeman. Stan Freberg is beaver.
