Lady and the Tramp (1955)

Disney's canine caper-romance broke new ground for the studio on two fronts. It was its first CinemaScope animated feature and its first film based on an original story instead of a classic tale. As a result, Lady and the Tramp was—and is—one of the most innovative films in the franchise. Lady lords over the home she shares with Jim Dear and Darling until a human bundle of joy enters the mix. The pedigreed Lady bolts and falls for Tramp, a dog from the wrong side of the tracks. Peggy Lee penned and performed many of the songs.
