Lady and The Tramp Blu-ray Review
Purchase  Blu-ray
Enhanced with High Definition, Lady and the Tramp has been released on Blu-ray for the first time. The format gives the animated film more color and sharpness that was missing when it was released in the original VHS Video format. 

The story of Lady and the Tramp has been around since its release in 1955,  and the tale has never lost its luster. It's Christmas time and Jim Dear (Lee Millar) gives his wife, Darling Dear (Peggy Lee), a gift of a puppy that she names Lady, a golden cocker spaniel.  We watch her grow, dealing with a couple of silly cats, meeting neighbor friends and essentially enjoying life when meets up with a mongrel dog who calls himself the Tramp (Larry Roberts), a vagabond that lives by the railroad tracks.  This sets up a romance that's a delight to watch, which includes the famous scene at Tony's during their romantic dinner.  But like in every relationship there's a downside. 

The film, which features many other characters such as dogs, and a beaver,  takes us on a journey that shows acts of  bravery, kindness and comedy, as well as a  glorious future for the characters.  This classic is very kid friendly.  Lady and the Tramp will always remain a family favorite among Disney movies.  Memorable music like Bella Notte and The Siamese Cat songs are also featured in the film.

Disney has done an amazing job restoring the picture quality of this Disney classic to Blu-ray. The animation is first-rate, and the colors come through vividly and are not muted. Even though the soundtrack for this film was originally released in mono, Disney has also done a great job removing all the noise from the original soundtrack and it sounds extremely crisp and clear.  Watching this Disney classic on Blu-ray is a real experience that families will enjoy over and over.

Although most of the Bonus features are adult level the whole family still can participate in the showing of them on  Blu-ray and DVD.
