Bill Peet kept in close consultation with Dodie Smith whilst preparing the story, including sending her some sketches of the characters. Smith felt that the Disney studios were improving on her story. See more »
Characters from Lady and the Tramp make cameos in the Twilight Bark chain, and landmarks from the same film are seen. Yet their community was in America, and this movie is set in England. See more »
My story begins in London, not so very long ago. And yet so much has happened since then, that it seems more like an eternity.

On the 1992 VHS release of the film, the 1990 Walt Disney Pictures logo takes the place of the Buena Vista title card, so, the Buena Vista title card is placed after the film's ending instead. The Buena Vista title card fades to these 2 bumpers, "Coming to Home Video" and "Coming on Videocassette this Summer" which these 2 bumpers have the text "Walt Disney" from the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video logo.

I liked this film mainly for its drawings. It was a departure from previous Disney animated films in that it had harder-edged drawings instead of the soft pastels. I found the detailed sketches of the building to be fascinating. I could actually watch this film with the sound off and just enjoy the artwork.
I actually saw this movie AFTER the 1996 live-action version with Glenn Close so I was familiar with the story. The only deviation was that there were more animals involved in the rescue of the puppies in the latter version.
The narration was very good in the beginning and film is okay, nothing super. It lags in a few parts, which is the only complaint I would have. It certainly is a nice story.
