OLIVER & Company, A Movie Coloring Contest

January 13, 1989.  A coloring contest for the Disney film, OLIVER & Company.  From Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide, "OLIVER & Company (1988), Director: George Scribner.  Voices of Joey Lawrence, Billy Joel, Cheech Marin, Richard Mulligan, Roscoe Lee Browne, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Dom Deluise, Taurean Blacque, Robert Loggia, Bette Midler and Natalie Gregory.  Free adaptation of Dickens' OLIVER TWIST in the cartoon world:  homeless kitten falls in with the jaunty Dodger and his canine pals, who work for Fagin, a human nebbish in debt to the heartless Sikes.  Dodger (Joel) has  the films best song, "Why Should I Worry?" - - but an excitable Chihuahua voiced by Marin provides the biggest laughs.  Disney's grittiest (grungiest?) animated feature is no classic, but it's likeable enough."  I have never seen this movie.
