What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Lady and the Tramp is one of the milder Disney titles, with no clear villain, so it's an age-appropriate choice for younger viewers who are ready for a feature-length movie. There are a few scenes that are potentially scary, including a climactic scene where the dogs try to protect a baby who's threatened by a beady-eyed rat and an accident scene where a secondary character appears to be dead, but then later appears mildly injured. The Siamese cats are more mischievous than mean, but they can seem creepy to young kids (they also embody some dated stereotypes). Romance is a theme throughout, with the two main characters ending up together raising puppies.
