Added DiffLines:

** Several characters, despite different names and characterisations, take on similar roles as those of the original ''Oliver Twist'' novel. Jenny roughly takes the same role Mr Brownlow did as Oliver's final and loving guardian, while Georgette is to some degree a redeemed version of Noah Claypole, a jealous fellow apprentice of Oliver's first residence.

* LawfulEvil: Fagin repays Sykes so Sykes lets him live with only a warning to keep quiet, despite what a severe loose end Fagin would make, having witnessed the kidnapping and knowing where Sykes hides out.

* AgeLift: The characters ages don't quite match their human versions from the original story. While Oliver is still a child, Dodger has been aged up into an adult.



* AnimalTalk

* AnimalTalkAnimalTalk: The animals can talk amongst each other.



%%* ArtfulDodger: No, duh.
%%It may seem obvious to you, but explain it anyway.

%%It may seem obvious to you, but explain it anyway.
* TheArtfulDodger: Being based on the original Artful Dodger himself, Dodger certainly counts. He's a very street-smart dog raised on the streets.

** Only the bad guys die in this film, since the character of Nancy is removed.

* TheEighties: It's pretty obvious to tell this film came out in the 80's and takes place in the 80's. Most notable evidence includes the way people dress, the style of Rita's hair, and of course, the songs. This does make the film seem very dated, which is likely one of the reasons why Disney (who's known for making timeless films) did not release this film on video until after its 1996 reissue.

Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon entry number 27 released in 1988, about [[Main/TalkingAnimal talking animals]], ''very'' loosely based on Creator/CharlesDickens' ''Literature/OliverTwist''. The setting is UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, and Oliver is an unwanted ginger kitten who isn't even called Oliver yet. Fagin's gang is now made up of dogs, including a mongrel named Dodger (as in the ArtfulDodger). Fagin himself is human, and he's a good guy this time. In fact, he's just some poor schmoe who may or may not be Jewish, trying to pay off LoanShark Mr. Sykes (based on Bill Sikes), the BigBad; here a sinister gangster/Mafia type. The part of Mr. Brownlow is taken by Jenny, a 7-year-old girl who adopts Oliver.
