14 Of Cinema’s Most Adorable Animals | Milo and Otis
Milo and Otis

Film: The Adventures Of Milo And Otis (1989)
Owners: No-one. Themselves. Um, they’re free as the wind.

The story behind Milo and Otis is a weird one. Originally shot and released in Japan – cut to suit Japanese tastes with a Japanese voiceover – it was a massive hit in the Land of the Rising Sun in 1986. Noting its success, Columbia pictures decided to buy the rights to the footage for the US, edit it, then release it to Western audiences with none other than “Cuddly” Dudley Moore doing the voice work.

The result is one of the sappiest, soppiest, cutsiest-wutsiest movies ever made, featuring a tiny pug named Otis and an orange tabby cat called Milo getting into a series of scrapes as they dart and bound and wiggle their way through the countryside.

They meet bears, birds, bees, deer, then cross rivers, climb trees and act adorable until most of the cinema is cooing in unison. Also, there are pug puppies and tabby kittens involved. Ah Japan, you know how to do cute, we’ll give you that…
