Production Notes:

Billed as "the first all-cartoon feature in CinemaScope."

Hedging his bets, Walt Disney also had the film photographed in standard Academy format for theaters lacking the new CinemaScope system. However, by the time that the film was completed, CinemaScope had been so popular that the Academy version stayed almost entirely unseen for decades.

This film was re-released theatrically in 1962, 1971, 1980 and 1986. It was then released to VHS video in 1987 and 1998, and then on DVD in 1999. Within weeks of its release (for Christmas 1987) on Walt Disney Home Video, Lady and the Tramp set a record for video film sales, beating the previous record (2.9 million units) set by Top Gun in 1986. By February 1988, it had become the first film on video with sales exceeding 3 million units.

Peggy Lee sued Disney for royalty payments as her contract specified theatrical releases. The court ruled she was entitled to payments for all future releases.

Both Alan Reed and Verna Felton went on to perform together again on The Flintstones, respectively as Fred Flintstone and Pearl Slaghoople. Verna Felton passed away exactly one day before Walt Disney.

This was the 15th film in the official Disney list of animated films.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
