Voiced by: Joey Lawrence; Renaud Tissier (European French dub)

An orange orphaned kitten who is looking for a home.

  • Adaptational Badass: A subtle example. Oliver is usually as vulnerable and naive as his book counterpart, but he does have several more impressive feats and accomplishments, like tracking Dodger all the way across Manhattan, pulling off a rescue mission with the rest of the gang, and helping to dispatch with the movie's villains.
  • Badass Adorable: With the emphasis on "adorable."
    Fagin: That reminds me, I saw DeSoto's nose; who did that?
    (Dodger presents Oliver to Fagin)
    Fagin: You... you? *Laughs* That took a lot of guts! We have never had a cat in the gang before... we can use all the help we can get.
  • Birds of a Feather: Oliver and his owner, Jenny, are both loving, affectionate, energetic kids and a perfect match for each other, as shown in "Good Company".
  • Butt-Monkey: Especially in early scenes, when he starts following Dodger and he's being put through a variety of pranks along the way.
  • Character Development: As a result of befriending Jenny and Dodger and getting drawn into a series of dangerous misadventures, Oliver becomes braver over the course of the film and more willing to roll with life's unexpected punches, which comes to a head during the climax, when he risks his life to help his friends.
  • Cute Kitten: Based on Oliver Twist... only the main character's a kitty.
  • Determinator: Oliver continues to pursue Dodger after getting dipped in cement, sprayed with water, and humiliated in a wide variety of ways.
  • Disney Death: There's a brief scare when it seems Oliver has died rescuing Jenny from Sykes.
  • Happily Adopted: By Lonely Rich Kid Jenny, later in the film.
  • Heartwarming Orphan: Initially he was a nameless, unwanted Cute Kitten left alone in a box before he was adopted and given a proper name by Jenny.
  • The Hero: As the title of the film would suggest.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Essentially does so when he pounces onto Sykes to save Jenny. Thankfully, it only leads to a Disney Death.
  • Hey, You!: He does not get a name until Jenny dubs him Oliver. Even afterwards, he is mostly called "kid" by Fagin's group. Fagin addresses him by name because he sees his license as an indication that he now has a new home, but Tito and Francis calling Oliver by name in the end suggests he is ultimately held by them to be a friend.
  • Naïve Newcomer: The new member of Fagin's gang with less experience than the others.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: The only kitten left in the box, and we see him nearly getting washed down the drain, getting chased by big, vicious dogs, ending up trying to get food from a hot dog vendor, and kicked into a wall.
  • Pinball Protagonist: Much like the original Oliver Twist, Oliver here spends a lot of the movie being dragged around in the affairs of Fagin's gang or other authorities. He Takes A Level In Badass to come to the aid of Jenny, however.
  • Protagonist Title: And Company.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Yes. He's a combination of Cute Kitten and Heartwarming Orphan, so he's adorable.
  • Took a Level in Badass: A downplayed example. Oliver starts the film as a completely ordinary, helpless kitten who's easily kicked around and overwhelmed by the enormity of New York City. Over the course of the film, Oliver becomes more willing to stand up for himself and put himself in dangerous situations for a good reason, whether it's chasing Dodger across town, helping his friends pull off a rescue mission to save Jenny, or putting himself in harm's way during a car chase to save Jenny and Dodger's lives in the climax.
  • Unintentional Backup Plan: His run-ins with Fagin's gang and later Jenny ultimately end up getting the former out of their ordeal with the Loan Shark, Sykes, after repeated failures to pickpocket the needed money.

Voiced by: Billy Joel; Patrick Poivey (European French dub)

A carefree, charismatic mongrel with a mix of terrier in him. He claims to have considerable "street savoir-faire". He is the leader of Fagin's gang of dogs, and is Oliver's first acquaintance, as well as his eventual best friend and protector. He is the object of Rita's affection.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Like Fagin, Dodger receives this. He starts off as something of a bully to Oliver but quickly pulls a Heel–Face Turn. He has more redeeming qualities than his book counterpart and remains a free dog by the movie's end.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: A sign that Dodger is warming to Oliver is the normally aloof street dog tousling the kitten's fur.
  • Anti-Hero: Being a delinquent and a Lovable Rogue, Dodger is not your conventional hero, but is nonetheless one of Oliver's closest friends.
  • Big Brother Instinct: After Character Development, he shows this towards Oliver.
  • Catchphrase: "Absitively Posolutely".
  • Character Development: Dodger initially wants little to do with Oliver and cons him out of some sausages, though he's continually surprised by the kitten's guts and determination. After accidentally getting Oliver involved in the gang's troubles with Sykes, Dodger starts to consider Oliver his responsibility and develops a Big Brother Instinct towards him. By the end of the film, Oliver and Dodger have saved each other's lives several times, and Dodger considers him as much a member of his gang as the other dogs. It's Dodger who ensures they're still friends at the end, even after Oliver has moved in Jenny.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Apt in use the environment in his favor. That's how he (and Oliver) defeats Roscoe and DeSoto at the end.
  • Cool Shades: He has them during the "Why Should I Worry?" number.
  • Deadpan Snarker
    Oliver: So when are we going to eat?
    Dodger: We?
    Oliver: Yeah, I'm starving!
    Dodger: Listen, kid, I hate to break it to you, but the "dynamic duo" is now the dynamic uno.
  • Delinquent: A fairly affable, canine example. He's the slick but tough leader of a gang of thieves who loves messing with humans and animals alike and steals to get by. He's a pretty textbook example of the bad-boy archetype, though befriending Oliver and becoming his new big brother figure causes him to mellow out a tad.
  • Greaser Delinquents: Despite being a dog, Dodger has the personality, demeanor and lingo of one, being an edgy 80's bad-boy who leads his own gang, is effortlessly cool, and dances to his own rhythm most of the time, easily impressing female dogs.
  • Heel–Face Turn: A minor example. Dodger starts off as something of bully to Oliver, tricking him out of some sausages and repeatedly humiliating him. After he saves him from Roscoe and Desoto and accepts Oliver as part of his gang, Dodger becomes the kitten's friend and mentor at the end of the first act and remains that way for the rest of the film.
  • Hidden Depths: Dodger is very reckless and something of a daredevil, he enjoys showing off to other dogs as seen in "Why Should I Worry?", but he's also very sharp and observant and is implied to be the best strategist in Fagin's gang.
  • "I Am" Song: "Why Should I Worry?" serves as one for him.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: He's neither the largest nor the smallest dog in the gang, as well as neither the most intellectual nor the most dumb - although possibly the smartest one when in practical matters.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's kind of inconsiderate and a bit selfish, but he always pulls through for his friends, he becomes increasingly protective of the youngest member of the gang (Oliver), and it's very apparent that Fagin has his Undying Loyalty because he wants to repay the man for taking him in off the streets.
  • Justified Criminal: Dodger and his gang steal to survive.
  • The Leader: Of Fagin's dog gang.
  • Loveable Rogue: A mischievous yet charming street-wise dog. Dodger is a thief and a delinquent, and he would be the first to boast about that, but he's ultimately not that bad of a guy, especially among the small circle of people he considers to be his friends. Like Fagin, it's shown that his criminal tendencies have their limits that stop at people actually getting hurt, and he has some code of honor, taking on Sykes and his dogs in the climax to save Jenny and Oliver from peril.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite being much smaller, he's able to match or win against Roscoe or Desoto in a fight (though not both).
  • Street Smart: He even has a song about his smooth-talking "street savoir faire". Dodger and his friends grew up on the streets, and as a result, he knows all the ins and outs and shortcuts of Manhattan, along with many of the people.

     Ignacio Alonzo Julio Federico de Tito

A tiny yet passionate Chihuahua in Fagin's gang. He has an especially fiery temper for his size.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Georgette. At least at first. At the end, she become attracted to him.
  • Fiery Redhead: Has a red tuft of hair on his head with a temper to match.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: At Jenny's apartment, he sniffs a cigar lying around, quoting, "If this is torture, chain me to the wall!!!"
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: He was once accidentally flung right at Rita's head during the play fighting.
  • The Lancer: He is a good contrast to Dodger: while the latter is a mongrel and a suave con man, Tito is a Chihuahua who is all mouth and kind of a lovable idiot.
  • Latin Lover: Averted. Until the end of the movie he's just a American-Mexican Casanova Wannabe.
  • Motor Mouth: He can speak fastly at times.
  • The Napoleon: A small Chihuahua and the most temperamental of the gang.
  • Overly Long Spanish Name: His friends simply call him "Tito" for a reason.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Tito and Francis are at each others' throats almost constantly, but they often get amused by each other's antics and are quite protective of each other, with Tito getting extremely agitated when Roscoe menaces Francis. On at least one occasion, you see Tito curled up between Francis' paws and using his jowls as a blanket.
  • Was Too Hard on Him: It is Tito of all people that tells Dodger to go easy on Oliver after the latter accuses him of being an Ungrateful Bastard for leaving them for Jenny.

Voiced by: Richard Mulligan; René Bériard (European French dub)

A gray Great Dane and a member of Fagin's gang. He is named ironically as he is not particularly bright, representing the (surprisingly accurate) stereotype that Great Danes are friendly but not exactly bred for intelligence.

  • Amusing Injuries: Played straight and inverted. Einstein headbutts Winston's limo to fake a hit, where he then wobbles about in a drunken dizzy fashion. Later, when a streetlight falls and conks Einstein on the head, he's suddenly back to normal.
  • The Big Guy: The largest dog in the gang, Einstein even tells Roscoe to pick on somebody his own size, although he's visibly not so certain about taking on the more savage Doberman on the spot when the latter accepts the challenge.
  • Big Friendly Dog: A Great Dane with a friendly personality.
  • Dogs Are Dumb: Despite his name, he is not very smart.
  • Dumb Muscle: Einstein is at least as large as one of the Dobermans, but he is also significantly slow-witted and much less fierce than them.
  • Ironic Name: Yeah, he ain't exactly the smartest member of Fagin's gang.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Simple minded but probably the most unambiguously sweet natured of the group.
  • Use Your Head: Einstein apparently specializes in this. Dodger calls on Einstein to produce a fender bender, and the latter pulls it off by ramming his head into the Foxworths' car.

Voiced by: Roscoe Lee Browne; Georges Atlas (European French dub)

A bulldog with a British accent in Fagin's gang. He appreciates art and theatre, particularly Shakespeare. He also detests anyone abbreviating his name as "Frank" or "Frankie" (which Tito frenquently does).

  • Animal Stereotypes: Somewhat unusually for how bulldogs are often portrayed in media, Francis is actually a meek dog who only helps with the intellectual field.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Particularly, he's snarky towards Tito in their Vitriolic Best Buds dynamic.
  • Insistent Terminology: He refuses to be referred to as "Frank" or "Frankie", a fact that Tito abuses when they fight over what to watch on TV.
  • Large Ham: Particularly when doing theatrical speeches.
  • Meaningful Name: Some denominations of Christianity revere Francis of Assisi, who was born into wealth, as the patron saint of animals. Many churches conduct animal blessings on his feast day.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He fancies himself as a Shakespearian actor material and high class, despite being another homeless mutt.
  • The Smart Guy: He's the most cultured member of the gang and the one tasked with missions that require a certain understanding of humans, like feigning death to distract Winston.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Tito and Francis are at each others' throats almost constantly, but they often get amused by each other's antics and are quite protective of each other, with Tito getting extremely agitated when Roscoe menaces Francis. On at least one occasion, you see Tito curled up between Francis' paws and using his jowls as a blanket.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Plays dead in front of Jenny's limo to distract Winston long enough for Oliver and Tito to steal the radio from inside.

Voiced by: Sheryl Lee Ralph (singing voice by Ruth Pointer); Sylvie Moreau (singing voice by Dada Hekimian) (European French dub)

An Afghan hound and the only female dog in Fagin's gang. She is street-wise but caring and takes Oliver under her wing.

  • Beauty = Goodness: She's very kind and not a bad looker, either.
  • The Chick: The only female in the gang, as well as the most sensible and rational.
  • Cool Big Sis: Towards Oliver, almost instantly since she realizes his innocent role in Dodger's tell tale.
  • Number Two: To Dodger in the gang. She's the one he glances for his side when the Dobermans come for trouble.
  • One of the Boys: The only female in the Five-Man Band of dogs.
  • Only Sane Woman: The most level-headed dog in Fagin's gang, probably because Women Are Wiser. However, there's a bit of Not So Above It All when the boys start play fighting and one of them hit her by accident.
  • Team Mom: Often serves as the voice of reason among the dogs, is the most level-head and the one who can calm the others down when they get out of control. She's especially motherly towards Oliver.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: She seems to be wearing blue eyeshadow. What's odd is, Rita is never seen applying it whereas it's a part of Georgette's morning routine.
  • Women Are Wiser: Notably the only one who voices doubts about "rescuing" Oliver from Jenny's house, as well as the only one who notices that Oliver is unhappy afterwards.

Voiced by: Dom De Luise; Philippe Dumat (European French dub)

A petty thief who lives on a house-boat with his dogs. He desperately needs money to repay his huge debt with Sykes. Because of his economic situation, he is forced to perform criminal acts such as pick-pocketing and petty theft, but in truth he is good-natured and polite most of the time.

  • Adaptational Heroism: His book counterpart was an antagonist. Here, despite being a thief, he's clearly one of the good guys.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the novel Sykes and Fagin were business partners on equal footing; here, Fagin is basically Sykes's bitch due to being respectively a lowly pickpocket and a Mafia loan shark. He owes Sykes an undisclosed amount of money and Sykes makes it very clear what will happen to Fagin if he doesn't pay up.
  • Anti-Villain: He does thievery and has the dogs do his dirty work, but he does care for them. Plus he's justified in his paranoia his dealings with Sykes and the welfare of the dogs if he gets "sleepin' with the fishes".
  • Big Damn Heroes: Comes to the aid of Jenny and his dogs via escape by scooter when they get caught by Sykes.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's never safe from the city's abuse, especially when he interacts with Sykes.
  • Cowardly Lion: He does crimes to escape his possible gangster death punishment from Sykes, but he does try to fight against him once he goes too far.
  • The Dog Bites Back: At the end of the film, when he realizes that Sykes has gone too far, Fagin decides to pull a Big Damn Heroes moment to rescue his dogs and Jenny.
  • Everyone Has Standards: After Fagin learns that Oliver has been taken in by the wealthy Foxworth family, he leaves a ransom note for them, telling them if they ever want Oliver again they'd have to pay him a large sum. When it's Jenny who shows up to pay the ransom Fagin feels so guilty that he can't go through with it.
  • Homeless Pigeon Person: Given that he has no home, he lives on his barge accompanied by his dogs.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A difference shared with the musical adaptation - yes, he's a thief, and was planning to ransom Oliver, but he clearly loves his pets, and when he learns that Jenny is Oliver's owner, he immediately gives up all idea of collecting the ransom (even though he is fully aware that he will be killed if he fails to pay Sykes) in order to return Oliver to her.
  • Nice Hat: He has a brown hat.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • When he realizes that Sykes is about to kidnap Jenny.
    • He has a similar reaction when Sykes' car is coming after him and his dogs.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: His book counterpart is sentenced to execution at the novel's end.
  • Token Human: The only human in his gang, which otherwise consists of a pack of dogs and one cat.

     Roscoe and DeSoto
Voiced by: Taurean Blacque (Roscoe) and Carl Weintraub (DeSoto); Régis Ivanov (Roscoe) and Marc Alfos (De Soto) (European French dub)

Sykes's vicious Doberman Pinschers who have a hostile history with Dodger and his friends. Roscoe is the apparent leader, while his brother DeSoto seems to be the more savage of the two.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Rita is plainly repulsed by Roscoe's advances.
  • Adaptational Heroism: This happens to DeSoto when he appears in the House of Mouse episode “Pluto Saves The Day”, in which he’s a member of a musical band “Pet Shop Dogs” with other Disney dogs, including Dodger, Tito and Francis. Unlike the source material, he does not show any hostility towards his fellow cast members or his bandmates except when Tito growls at him, to which he responds with a growl of his own. He later aids the dogs in chasing and mauling Pete, with the encouragement of Pluto.
  • Ax-Crazy: Both of them, but DeSoto seems to be the most unhinged and ferocious of the duo. He was planning to eat Oliver when he found him!
  • Beware of Vicious Dog: Not only do they constantly terrorize our heroes, Sykes implies he has no trouble letting them kill and even eat people as part of his schemes.
  • The Bully: They not only enjoy tormenting the gang, but also take delight in brutally beating down Dodger when he stepped in their attempt to eat Fagin. They coldly stop only when Sykes decides to give Fagin another chance.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Roscoe = red, DeSoto = blue.
  • Dark Is Evil: Two black, violent dogs.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: Hinted at with Roscoe, who thinks kicking someone's TV is funny.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Fried by the third rail.
  • High-Voltage Death: They get fatally electrocuted at the end of the film by the subway tracks.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: They give one to Dodger when he tried to protect Fagin from their teeth. At their rematch at the end of the film, it fares quite different since it is one-on-one and Roscoe goes literally overboard.
  • Oh, Crap!: When they realize they are about to fall on the tracks.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: They serve as this to Sykes.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Inverted, since Roscoe, the red-collared doberman, is somewhat cooler than the blue-collared doberman, DeSoto.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Roscoe shares his owner's cool headed facade to hide his viciousness.
  • Scary Black Man: Roscoe invokes this even though his fur color has nothing to do with it— you can hear Taurean Blacque's African-American accent.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They are Sykes's dogs.
  • Undying Loyalty: They never betray Sykes or each other for that matter. Almost everything they do is them obeying their master.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: While the main dogs can scare off the rabid dog that showed up in the song "Streets Of Gold", they face these two with disgust. Besides being dogs for a gangster affiliate, DeSoto is implied to be a kitten killer, even more disturbing implications is that they're both human killers, as Sykes makes a cruel joke to her that they might eat Jenny if her parents didn't pay the ransom.

     Bill Sykes
Voiced by: Robert Loggia; Henry Djanik (European French dub)

A cold-hearted, immoral loan shark and shipyard agent who lent a considerable sum of money to Fagin and expects it paid back.

  • Age Lift: His book counterpart is 35, this character must be in his fifties at least.
  • Ax-Crazy: He goes nuts driving his car on the subway tracks towards the end of the film.
  • Badass Fingersnap: It's his attack dogs' cue to attack.
  • Bad Boss: He often pushes Fagin around to the point that he sics his dogs on Dodger.
  • Big Bad: He's the main antagonist of the film, though he's more of a threat to Fagin rather than Oliver.
  • Cigar Chomper: In pretty much every scene he's in.
  • Cool Car: Owns a black Lincoln Continental with custom vanity plates. He even has a miniature model of it in his office.
  • Dark Is Evil: Indeed. He's usually shown in shadows like most stereotypical villains.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Ultimately hit by a subway train in the end.
  • Fat Bastard: Very large, very intimidating, and very much a despicable excuse for a human being.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Sykes is a friendly businessman if you forget about the way he treats Fagin.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Has glasses and not an inch of pity.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Evil smoking, naturally.
  • Guttural Growler: He smokes and has a raspy voice.
  • Hidden Depths: Animator Glen Keane has said Sykes's hobby is building miniature models, as evidenced by the ones seen in his office.
  • Kick the Dog: He has Roscoe and DeSoto attack Dodger and kidnaps Jenny to pile more misery on Fagin.
  • Loan Shark: His job is this, and he'll get money no matter what the cost.
  • Obviously Evil: Look at him. He's just as evil as he seems.
  • Oh, Crap!: He freezes in shock when he realizes he's about to get hit by an oncoming train.
  • Pet the Dog: Literal, as Sykes actually does appear to take decent care of Roscoe and DeSoto.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: He has Roscoe and DeSoto attack Fagin and his dogs whenever it's necessary.
  • Sanity Slippage: He's completely lost his mind by the end of the movie.
  • Say My Name: He yells Fagin's name when the latter helps Jenny escape from his lair.
  • Second Face Smoke: Does this to Fagin while holding him in a Neck Lift through his car window.
  • Smoky Voice: He usually smokes a cigar, and has a appropriately raspy voice.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He's clearly a horrible human being underneath his soft-spoken businessman façade.
  • Stout Strength: See the Villainous Breakdown example below, but even before this he's able to hold Fagin up with one hand seemingly effortlessly.
  • Too Dumb to Live: It's really not wise to drive a car through subway tracks.
  • Tranquil Fury: He spends most of the ending in a very calm state, but is quick to use an ax to slow down Dodger and Oliver's rescue of Jenny, pull down the gear stick so hard it breaks off, and so on.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Especially for Disney. Sykes has no sorcery, hamminess, or even a Villain Song; he is a cold-blooded Loan Shark played straight. His methods are brutal as he holds Jenny for ransom, has Fagin in a loan deal with the implications of mafia execution and, in one scene where he's on the phone, he's clearly instructing the person on the other end how to perform the Cement Shoes method.
  • Villainous Breakdown: While he's mainly calm throughout the film, in the climactic car chase, he pulls down the gear stick so hard it breaks off and punches his hand through his car's window to get at Jenny.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Kidnaps Jenny, a 7-year-old girl, for ransom, and outright threatens to feed her to his dogs if he doesn't see her parents' money.

     Jenny Foxworth
Voiced by: Natalie Gregory; Sauvane Delanoë (European French dub)

A kind, rich girl who takes care of Oliver.

Voiced by: William Glover; Georges Berthomieu (European French dub)

The Foxworth family's bumbling but loyal butler.

  • Beleaguered Assistant: Is given a bit of a runaround with Jenny, and is implied to essentially be a servant to Georgette, the family dog.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's apparently a huge fan of Professional Wrestling.
  • Hidden Depths: He really likes wrestling.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: He looks exactly like his voice actor, Bill Glover.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sure, he's a bit of a snob but it's clear he does care about Jenny, and he eventually warms to Fagin and his gang too.
  • Nice Hat: A black driver's hat.
  • Papa Wolf: He is shown to care a lot about Jenny, which is just as well as her actual parents are often absent. Furthermore, he is the one negotiating Jenny's safety on the phone when Sykes makes his demands for her ransom.
  • Parental Substitute: Seems to be this towards Jenny to an extent.
  • Rolling Pin of Doom: Uses it as an Improvised Weapon when he goes to inspect the noise coming from Georgette's room.
  • Servile Snarker: Displays some deadpan jadedness despite his ever dutiful personality.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: He is savvy enough to know Georgette will not get along with Oliver.

Voiced by: Bette Midler; Michelle Bardollet (European French dub)

The Foxworth family's show-winning poodle.

  • Anti-Hero: She is extremely jealous of Oliver when Jenny first gets him, and tries to get rid of him after that. Despite this, she does help Oliver and the gang rescue Jenny from Sykes's clutches and appears to have...slightly lightened up by the end.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: When it becomes clear Dodger didn't break into her room for sex.
  • Attention Whore: She is used to a lot of attention and can't handle Jenny giving any of hers to Oliver.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. She's usually groomed and pretty, but in certain situations she looks worse for wear.
  • Cool Big Sis: Consigns herself to being this for Oliver in the end, though the "cool" part is debatable.
  • Drama Queen: She freaks out over the tiniest things.
  • Dude Magnet: Just look at how many boyfriends she has had and still has.
  • Fur Is Clothing: She loses the blue ruff of fur on her chest for a brief "I'm naked back here" gag in "Perfect Isn't Easy".
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Oliver for much of the movie.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs: She always wears a pink bow at the back of her head.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Most male dogs absolutely love her.
  • I Broke a Nail: Which is slightly weird, considering that she's a dog.
    • Likely unintentional, but anyone who's dealt with a dog with a broken nail can tell you it's far worse for them than for us (and, while thankfully not the case here, usually quite a bloody affair).
  • Informed Attractiveness: She's not too different in design to Rita, but her many prizes imply she is an unrivaled beauty.
  • It's All About Me: She is very self-centered but gets a little better later on.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although she starts off as a straight-up Jerkass, she eventually regrets her actions and comes to accept Oliver as part of her family. She's also very loyal and protective of Jenny to the point of helping the others save her from Sykes.
  • Large Ham: Nearly every line is a slice of pure pork, as you would expect from her voice actress.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She does have a heart, especially towards the end.
  • Mama Bear: Surprisingly she seems to be this towards Jenny. When Fagin approaches Jenny you can see Georgette barring her fangs at him protectively, and even though she isn't asked, she also joins the other dogs in rescuing Jenny.
  • The Primadonna: Is something of a celebrity in dog show circles, and isn't shy about mentioning it.
  • Proud Beauty: Males find her irresistible, and she knows it. However, it takes some "paint and glue" to maintain her perfection these days, so she may be verging on White-Dwarf Starlet.
  • Really Gets Around: Just check out her shrine to her admirers! Even Ratigan appears in there.
  • Rich Bitch: As a female dog, she is a literal example!
  • Shrine to Self: Her room is not only stuffed with photographs and paintings of her and many, MANY mirrors, but statues of her make up most of her bed, flank her vanity table, and her dog bowl has a few miniature Georgettes on it.
  • Truth in Television: A highly-bred dog who is regularly entered into pet shows often becomes much less of a family pet, explaining why Jenny would want to have Oliver to play with.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It is unclear whether her fur was dyed blue, naturally blue, or intended as gray via Hair Color Dissonance.
