Voices of Joey Lawrence, Billy Joel, Cheech Marin, Richard Mulligan, Roscoe Lee Browne, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Dom DeLuise, Taurean Blacque, Robert Loggia, Bette Midler, Natalie Gregory. Charles Dickensí Oliver Twist is transported to New York City of the 1980s, where a small kitten lives through many adventures with its canine friends and their landlord/owner, who is in debt to a dangerous underworld character. Cute animated feature from Disney provides good entertainment for kids, although it bogs down during some of the unmemorable songs. Marinís lines are far and away the funniest of the picture.
