STORY LINE

Lady, a young cocker spaniel from a respectable home, falls in love with Tramp, a mutt who lives in the railroad yards. They enjoy several outings together, including a memorable spaghetti dinner at Tony's, but their relationship is strained not only by Lady's loyalty to her human family and their newborn baby, but by Tramp's devil-may-care attitude that at one point gets Lady thrown in the dog pound. Tramp redeems himself by saving the baby from a rat and thereby wins Lady's love and the affection of her human family.

Information From Stay Tooned:

"The sequel you'd never think would be made, and Disney goes out a mocks one of the greatest films they've ever produced. Sometime during the Spring of 2001, Walt Disney Home Video will be releasing "Lady & The Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure," the DTV/DTDVD sequel to the 1955 classic. The sequel will feature Lady and Tramp with their three daughters: Annette, Colette and Danielle, and their mischievous son, Scamp, who wants nothing to do with the domesticated life. Scamp joins the Junkyard Dogs, a group of strays that feed on the freedom of dog-life. Included in the voice talent are Scott Wolf (Party of Five) as Lady and Tramp's spirited son, Scamp, and Alyssa Milano (Melrose Place) as Scamp's friend, the female stray named Angel. "Lady & The Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure" will be released on VHS and DVD during the Spring of 2001, but don't expect my money to ever purchase such a mockery. "

Production Still From Disney's "Lady and the Tramp 2".

TRIVIA

"In the whole history of the world there is but one thing that
