Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure is a 2001 American direct-to-video animated film produced by Disney Television Animation at Australia. The film was released on 27 February 2001, 46 years after its predecessor. The film is the sequel of the Disney animated film Lady and the Tramp. The story centers on Lady and Tramp's only son, Scamp, who desires to become a "wild dog".[1]

Disney re-released the film in 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/DVD combo pack on 21 August 2012.

Plot[edit]

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 named 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 dog house outside. His parents, Tramp and Lady, are distraught that their son cannot settle down and live in a home. Tramp goes to talk to his son. While having a conversation, Scamp 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. Scamp manages to break free from the chain and runs off to find the pack. He finds a young member of the pack, Angel, and the two go to the junkyard with the pack, named the Junkyard Dogs. Just after Scamp leaves, Lady walks out to reconcile with her son but sees him gone. She alerts Tramp and the Darlings start 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 Scamp grabs and drops a tin can from a large, savage dog named Reggie who chases him. Scamp and Angel manage to evade Reggie and see him 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 (apparently he jumped off a log to avoid various dogcatchers), a stray dog that the Junkyard Dogs once looked up to. Buster angrily snaps that he did not die heroically; he ran off with Lady to become a house pet. Scamp cannot 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, Scamp's parents, along with Jock and Trusty, search for him. After a romantic stroll, Scamp and Angel wind up on the street where Scamp used to live and find Scamp's family searching for him. When Scamp 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. Scamp, determined to prove that he is a Junkyard Dog, steals the chicken and heads to an alley, where Tramp confronts and asks him to come home, but Scamp 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 Scamp if he wants to be a house dog, Scamp snaps and accidentally says that Angel wants to be a house dog. Buster then kicks Angel out of the pack and she leaves, upset with Scamp. Scamp 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 dog catcher. Alone and scared in the back of the dogcatcher's wagon, Scamp suddenly realizes how selfish he was and what his dad was trying to tell him, 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 tell his family.

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