How Old Were You When Lady and the Tramp Was First Released?

No matter how young you were when this 1995 movie first graced our screens, there’s no doubting its impact on our generation. It’s such a timeless classic, and maybe this is the reason behind the 2019 live-action movie’s release.

In both versions of Lady and the Tramp, the same lessons prevail. First, we learn the true meaning of family through Lady, Jim Dear, and Darling. Many changes will envelop your life and family, but that doesn’t mean you have to cast anyone out; you just have to be patient and more open to make your family stronger.

Second, through Tramp’s friends and how Lady formed a bond with them, we learn that privilege and social class are nonexistent in genuine friendships. They might have all been different dog breeds and came from diverse backgrounds. But, that didn’t stop them from forging long-lasting bonds that can conquer any challenge.

Also, through the movie, we learn that love can conquer all the odds. You can build friendships with people of different cultures, which means you can also be with someone different from you. As they say, “Opposites attract,” which is precisely what happened with Lady and the Tramp.

We hope our list was able to shift your perspective about Lady and the Tramp. Yes, it’s an animated movie that can entertain everyone. But, more than that, remember that it has some vital life lessons, too!
