Deep under the sea is a research base where a nuclear missile site is to be completed soon. When it is discovered that the base is resting on a thin layer of seabed, it makes sense to use explosives to destroy the layer–well, the team leader thought it made sense. Wouldn't you know it, a sea monster is unleashed–and it is hungry. Slow, poor.

This animated Disney flick follows a kitten, Oliver (voice of Joey Lawrence) as he experiences adventures in the tough streets of New York. Though OK for the young ones, the gangster-ridden story may be a little much for the youngest ones. Loosely based on Dickens' "Oliver Twist."
