Lady and the Tramp, 1955

Dog owners Jim Dear and Darling have a cocker spaniel, Lady, who finds adventure and romance with a free-wheeling mutt from the wrong side of the tracks in this animated classic.

Peggy Lee provided the voice of the female human, Darling, as well as the Siamese cats and the dog pound singer Peg. “He’s a Tramp”, the song Peg sings in the dog pound, was one of several written by Peggy Lee and Sonny Burke. The pair also wrote the song “Bella Notte”, heard during the famous romantic spaghetti scene.  

Barbara Luddy did the voice of Lady. She was also the voice of Kanga in the Winnie the Pooh movies in the 1970s. Other movies such as Sleeping Beauty in 1959, 101 Dalmatians in 1961, and Robin Hood in 1973 used her voice as well.

Bill Thompson did the voice of the Scottish terrier named Jock, Lady’s friend and neighbor. He gave his voice to a lot of Disney animated characters. He was in Peter Pan in 1953, Sleeping Beauty in 1959, and The AristoCats in 1970.
