The look on Sykes' face right before [[spoiler: [[UnusualEuphemism he catches the train.]]]]]]]]
** Georgette ''was'' snickering about about Oliver being "kidnapped"...until Jenny says she's going to rescue him.


* TechnologyMarchesOn: The proliferation of debit and credit cards in society (and also identity theft) since 1988 make the disdain Francis and Sykes show toward Tito's stolen wallet look a little baffling these days.

** Also, Jenny feeds Cocoa Krispies to Oliver in one scene. Chocolate is even more toxic to cats then it is to dogs

* BookEnds: The film begins and ends with an elevated shot of Lower Manhattan. [[spoiler: This is especially heartwarming post-9/11 as the Twin Towers are seen still standing proud and tall among the skyline.]]

* 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, [[EightiesHair 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. [[spoiler: And following 9/11, seeing the Twin Towers in this movie reminds us of what New York City was like before that tragic day.]]

* NewYorkIsOnlyManhattan: The film takes place almost exclusively in Manhattan; the climax occurs on the Manhattan Bridge. Further, the opening scene is a slow pan of western Manhattan, and the closing scene is a zoom-out on Times Square. [[spoiler:It does include the former Twin Towers of the World Trade Center as they no longer exist in real life due to 9/11.]]

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** "Gang war! Gang war!"
** During the song "Why Should I Worry?", two female chorus dogs briefly give Dodger a sexy look while shaking their butts in a "suggestive" manner.
** Practically a small-scale RunningGag with Georgette:
*** When Georgette finds Dodger in her room, she panics, then gets angry when he says, "It's not you I'm after." Child viewers might assume she thinks he wants to kidnap her, but to adult viewers it's obvious that she thinks [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe he's there to rape her]].
*** Later, Georgette asks to have a talk with Tito... alone in her room... [[SubvertedTrope about giving him a bath and new wardrobe]]. [[DoubleSubversion Though Tito was obviously expecting something else]].
** In "Perfect Isn't Easy", Georgette admits that she needed some 'minor adjustments' for her good looks. She says this while [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything pushing up her fur collar,]] [[BuxomIsBetter it momentarily resembling a certain part of female anatomy.]]

* ConspicuousCG: The ENTIRE MOVIE is loaded with conspicuous CG animation; New York City's traffic, Sykes's car, Fagin's cart, Georgette's stairs, etc. They're all CGI. The final chase sequence makes really heavy use of this as well. This was the first Disney animated feature to use CGI in such a heavy manner (instead of for certain sequences like the previous two films did.)

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Creator/BetteMidler (voice of Georgette) currently has a New York City apartment at 1125 Fifth Avenue, so she has same address as her character and probably lived there when the movie was made (unless it's an astounding example of LifeImitatesArt).
