Lady and the Tramp is a 1955 American animated movie. It was produced by Walt Disney. Lady and the Tramp was released to theaters on June 22, 1955, by Buena Vista Film Distribution. It is the 15th animated movie in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. Lady and the Tramp was the first Disney animated movie to be presented in widescreen. It was the first animated movie filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen movie process.[2] It was nominated for Best Animated Movie at the BAFTA Awards.[3] Lady and the Tramp was the first Disney animated movie to be released under Disney's own distribution company Buena Vista Film Distribution.

The story is set in 1909. It is about a female American Cocker Spaniel named Lady. She lives with a refined, upper-middle-class family. The story is also about a male stray mutt called the Tramp. A direct-to-video sequel, Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, was released in 2000.

In June 2011, TIME named it one of "The 25 All-TIME Best Animated Films".[4] It has gotten some criticism for the portrayal of the Siamese cats, who are thought to be racist stereotypes of Asian people.
