Lady and the Tramp Overview:

Lady and the Tramp (1955) was a Animation - Family Film directed by Hamilton Luske and Clyde Geronimi and produced by Erdman Penner.

SYNOPSIS

Disney's animated classic is a romantic adventure about two dogs from the opposite sides of the kennel. Lady, a pedigreed cocker spaniel who's run away from home, meets Tramp, a wild mutt who comes to her defense, and they fall in love. Featuring the voice and music of Peggy Lee, this was Disney's first CinemaScope cartoon, requiring animators to draw some scenes twice, once in CinemaScope and once in the regular aspect ratio. Based on Ward Greene's short story "Happy Dan, the Whistling Dog." Songs include "He's a Tramp" and "Peace on Earth."

One of Disney?s more underrated animated classics is Lady and the Tramp. ?It lacks many elements younger generations associate with Disney. ?It is not a fairy tale, there is no princess and while there are songs, most of them are not big song and dance productions. ?The film is simply a touching tal...

Quotes from

Tramp: Just a cute little bundle... of trouble. Yeah, they scratch, pinch, pull ears... Aw, but shucks, any dog can take that. It's what they do to your happy home. Move it over, will ya, friend? Homewreckers, that's what they are!
Jock: Look here, laddie! Who are you to barge in?
Tramp: The voice of experience, buster. Just wait 'til Junior gets here. You feel the urge for a nice, comfortable scratch, and... "Put that dog out! He'll get fleas all over the baby!" You start barking at some strange mutt...
[Barks]
Tramp: "Stop that racket, you'll wake the baby!" And then... then they hit you on the room and board department. Oh, remember those nice, juicy cuts of beef? Forget 'em. Leftover baby food. And that nice, warm bed by the fire? A leaky dog house.
Lady: Oh, dear!


Tramp: [preparing to leave] Well, friend, we'll be on our way now, so...
Beaver: Uh-uh-uh! Not so fast, sonny.
[puts on the muzzle]
Beaver: I'll have to make certain it's satisfactory before we settle on a price.
Tramp: Oh, no. It's all yours, friend. You can keep it.
Beaver: I can, eh?
[excitedly]
Beaver: I can?
Lady: Uh-huh. It's a free sample.
Beaver: [very pleased] Well, thanks a lot. Thanks ever so...
[he slips and falls, dragging the log along; they land in the pond, where the log fits neatly over the dam spillway]
Beaver: [proudly] Say! it works ssswell!


[first lines]
Jim Dear: [Giving Darling a hatbox] It's for you, Darling. Merry Christmas.
Darling: Oh, Jim, dear. It's the one I was admiring, isn't it? Trimmed with ribbons?
Jim Dear: Well, it *has* a ribbon.
[the box is opened; inside is a puppy wearing a ribbon]
Darling: Oh, how sweet.
Jim Dear: You like her, Darling?
Darling: [hugging the puppy] Oh, I love her. What a perfectly beautiful little Lady.

Facts about

In order to make the fight between the rat and the Tramp more exciting Wolfgang Reitherman animated from the point of view of the loser and then attempted to avoid that particular outcome.
The song howled by the dogs in the pound is "Home Sweet Home". It is the only song to be in the film that was not written by Peggy Lee and Sonny Burke
The decision to film in Cinemascope was made when the film was already in production, so many background paintings had to be extended to fit the new format. Overlays were often added to cover up the seams of the extensions.
