Why Is Lady and the Tramp Rated G?

Beyond the movie ratings: What parents need to know about Lady and the Tramp...

This gently paced movie contains only a few concerns for young viewers. Along with some slapstick antics and property damage, there are a few more perilous depictions such as a character chased by pack of vicious dogs who engage in a fight (shown in shadow silhouettes), animals that are nearly run over and killed by moving vehicles, a tussle with a villainous rat (who is killed off screen), and some angry gunshots that miss their target. Other heartstring pulling moments include dogs being impounded and the implication of an animal being put down (nothing is shown). There is also a slightly sensual rendition of He’s A Tramp by a street-wise showgirl who alludes to the womanizing ways of the main character.
