Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure is a 2001 American animated direct-to-video sequel to the 1955 animated feature film Lady and the Tramp.[1]

The film centers on Lady and Tramp's only son, Scamp, who desires to become a "wild dog".

Produced by Disney Television Animation in Australia, the film was released on 27 February 2001, 46 years after its predecessor. Disney re-released itin the United States on DVD after the Platinum Edition DVD release of the first film on 20 June 2006. The Special Edition DVD went back to the Disney Vault on 31 January 2007. A new Special Edition was released on a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack on 21 August 2012.


In 1911 New England, just two days before the Fourth of July, Lady and Tramp have three daughters, Annette, Colette and Danielle, and a rambunctious son, Scamp. After chewing Jim Dear's favorite hat and causing a mess while chasing after a ball in the house, Scamp is chained to a doghouse outside. His parents are distraught that he can't settle down and live in a home. Tramp goes to talk to him While having a conversation, he stays firm about his desire to be a "wild dog", causing a fed-up Tramp to lose his temper and walk inside the house in anger and annoyance. Scamp then sees a pack of stray dogs harassing the dogcatcher and becomes intrigued. He manages to break free from his chain and runs off to find them. He finds a young member of the pack, Angel and they go to the junkyard with the rest, who are named the Junkyard Dogs. Just after he leaves, Lady walks out to reconcile with him but sees him gone. She alerts Tramp and the family starts a search party.

Scamp attempts to join the Junkyard Dogs right away, but the leader, Buster, gives him the first test in the alley, where he grabs and takes a tin can from a large, savage dog named Reggie who chases him. Scamp and Angel manage to evade Reggie and see him get caught by the dogcatcher. They then head to a park where Sparky, one of the Junkyard Dogs, tells a colorful yet highly exaggerated story about Tramp and how he disappeared, jumping off a log to avoid various dogcatchers, a stray dog that the Junkyard Dogs once looked up to. Buster angrily snaps that Tramp survived heroically and ran off with Lady to become a house pet. Scamp can't believe that his father used to be a Junkyard Dog. After Scamp and Angel narrowly escape from being killed by a train and fall into a river, they realize that their friendship has blossomed into love.

Meanwhile, Lady and Tramp, along with Jock and Trusty, search for him. After a romantic stroll, he and Angel wind up on the street where he used to live and find his family searching for him. When he evades them, Angel is disgusted that he would choose living on the streets over a loving family, as she herself has once been a pet. At a picnic, Buster clues in that Scamp is Tramp's son and tells him to steal a chicken from his family's picnic. He, determined to prove that he is a Junkyard Dog, does so and heads to an alley, where Tramp confronts and asks him to come home, but he refuses and chooses to stay with Buster. Buster is pleased to see Tramp distraught and officially declares Scamp a Junkyard Dog by removing his collar.

While celebrating, Angel scolds Scamp for what he said to his father and reminds him that his family loves him. After Buster asks him if he wants to be a house dog, he snaps and accidentally says that Angel wants to be one. Buster then kicks her out of the pack and she leaves, upset with Scamp. He searches for her, begging her to forgive him. Buster, still wishing revenge on Tramp, sets up a trap so that Scamp, with no collar, gets caught by the dogcatcher. Alone and scared in the back of the dogcatcher's van, he suddenly realizes how selfish he was, what his dad was trying to tell him, and that Buster was nothing but trouble. Feeling guilty for what he has done, he wishes he was home with his family. Angel sees him and goes to warn them.

Meanwhile, Scamp is placed in a cage with Reggie. Tramp, arriving just in time, manages to fight off Reggie and save his son. The dogcatcher comes and steps toward them to capture them, but gets bitten in the rear by Angel and falls unconscious. Before they head home, Scamp apologizes to his father for running away and Tramp does so for being to harsh with him, and they reconcile. They head to the junkyard, where Scamp retrieves his collar and traps Buster under piles of junk. The pack members abandon him and go to find families, while Tramp, Scamp, and Angel return home for a happy reunion. The family decides to adopt Angel who is delighted to be with Scamp's sisters. He then begrudgingly gets a bath, while the Junkyard Dogs have found new owners.
