Lady and the Tramp (1955)

The romantic tale of a sheltered uptown Cocker Spaniel dog and a streetwise downtown Mutt. (IMDb)
“Okay, how many cultural stereotypes and fake accents can we cram into this kids’ movie about dogs? Also, can we possibly give the central romance a creepy ‘grizzled playboy+young innocent girl’ vibe? Oh, and rats sneaking into babies’ rooms and attacking them is a thing right?” This has most of the lovely animation and charm of its Disney siblings (see the constant dog POV) but its discomforting and/or puzzling elements (see the abrupt shift to happy epilogue) are too many to let slide.
6/10 (Mediocre)
