Lady and the Tramp's THX-certified format premiered in the summer of 1997 in Europe, then was planned for a VHS release since January 1998, before it was officially released on September 15, 1998. This movie was also available in letterboxed widescreen format on VHS. The video was discontinued on January 31, 1999 along with all the other Masterpiece Collection titles released in 1998. A DVD later came out on November 23, 1999.


Generations of fans have fallen in love with Walt Disney's 15th animated masterpiece -- an irresistible song-filled adventure about Lady, a lovingly pampered cocker spaniel, and Tramp, a roguish mutt from across the tracks. As one of Disney's most delightful and captivating classics, Lady and the Tramp has earned praise as a marvel of animation!

When Aunt Sarah moves in with her devious felines Si and Am to baby-sit, the very protective Lady soon finds herself being fitted for the unthinkable -- a muzzle! In her bid for freedom, she meets and is charmed by Tramp, dog-about-town. Together with friends Jock, Trusty and Peg, they share thrilling adventures on a lovely bella notte as Lady learns what it means to be footloose and leash-free.
