Lady and the Tramp is based on a short story written by Ward Greene and titled Happy Dan, The Cynical Dog.
This endearing movie is about a cute little cocker spaniel named Lady (Barbara Luddy) who is a treasured pet of Darling (Peggy Lee) and Jim Dear (Lee Millar). Lady is a beloved part of the family until one unfortunate day when Aunt Sara (Verna Felton) shows up to babysit the new baby. She brings along her two Siamese Cats, and it is through their manipulations that Lady gets in trouble with Aunt Sara.
Lady tries to stop the cats from trashing the house, but when Aunt Sara checks on the ruckus, the cats are moaning and acting like it was Lady who attacked them. In punishment, Aunt Sara puts a muzzle on Lady, who runs away and in the process runs into Tramp (Larry Roberts).
Tramp is a stray that lives on the street, but he helps Lady get the muzzle off and then shows her around the town. Soon, the two of them slowly fall in love as they deal with their misadventures.
The Lady and the Tramp is a delightful movie and is great for the entire family. It is about family, friendship, and love. A classic that only gets better with time.
Disney also re-made this movie exclusively for Disney Plus. The new movie premiered on Nov. 12.
