Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure (also known as Lady and the Tramp 2) is a 2001 American direct-to-video animated romantic musical film produced by Disney Television Animation in Australia, and the sequel to the 1955 animated Disney film Lady and the Tramp. It was released on February 27, 2001, 46 years after its predecessor.
The film centers on Lady and Tramp's only son, Scamp, who longs for freedom from house rules and desires to become a "wild dog". Disney re-released the film in the United States on DVD after the Platinum Edition DVD release of the first film on June 20, 2006. The Special Edition DVD went back into the Disney's Vault on January 31, 2007. A new Special Edition was released on a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack on August 21, 2012. The new Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD combo pack went back into the Disney Vault on April 30, 2013.
Lady and Tramp have three spunky but well-mannered daughters, Annette, Danielle and Colette, and their son Scamp. When the family baby, Jim Jr. tosses a ball Scamp chases after it, making a mess in the house, and their owner Jim Dear chains Scamp to a doghouse outside. Tramp tries to reason with Scamp, but loses his temper at his son's insistent desire to be wild. Later, Scamp sees a pack of stray dogs harassing the dogcatcher outside the yard and becomes intrigued. He breaks free from his chain and runs off to find them. Scamp finds a beautiful member of the pack, Angel, and she takes him to the rest of the Junkyard Dogs. Meanwhile, Lady notices that Scamp's gone, alerting Tramp and their family.
Scamp confesses that he wishes to join the Junkyard Dogs, but their tough leader, Buster, demands that Scamp pass some tests. As the first, Scamp must sneak up on a large, savage street dog named Reggie, to steal a tin can. He bumps into a trash can, waking Reggie who chases Scamp and Angel, and they're caught by the dogcatcher. Scamp manages to free Angel and evade the dogcatcher's net. Reggie's taken to the dog pound, and the Junkyard Dogs are impressed Scamp, except Buster. At the park, one dog tells a story about Tramp escaping from the group of dogcatchers. Buster, who was once good friends with Tramp, angrily reminds them that Tramp fell in love with Lady and became a house pet. Scamp's surprised but doesn't believe that his father used to be a Junkyard Dog.
Meanwhile, Lady, Tramp, Jock and Trusty, search for Scamp. After a romantic stroll, Scamp and Angel happen upon them on their search. Angel, who was once a house pet herself, is disgusted that Scamp would choose living on the streets over a loving family. Later, while the family picnic, the Junkyard Dogs see them and Buster realizes that Scamp's Tramp's son. As the second and final test for Scamp to join the Junkyard Dogs, Buster orders Scamp to steal a chicken from his family's picnic. Brief conflict ensues when Angel who sees what Buster's really up to, but Scamp's determined to prove himself. Tramp pursues his son to an alley and asks him to come home, but Scamp chooses to join the strays. As Tramp leaves, Buster removes Scamp's collar and declares him a Junkyard Dog.
While celebrating, Angel scolds Scamp for not listening to his father, and he instead goes to Buster. When Scamp reveals that Angel wants to be a house pet, Buster exiles her from the pack and she leaves the junkyard. However, Buster wishes to take revenge on Tramp, and tricks Scamp into getting caught by the dogcatcher. Realizing his terrible mistake, Scamp wishes that he was home with his family. Angel sees Scamp on his way to the pound and goes to alert Tramp.
At the pound, Scamp's thrown into the same cage as Reggie. The massive dog's chained to the wall, but lunges at Scamp and manages to break free. Tramp arrives just in time, breaking into the cage. He uses Reggie's size against him, and locks him back up. Tramp's about to lead his son out when the dogcatcher arrives and recognizes Tramp. He tries to capture the dogs but goes into a panic when Angel bites him in the rear, knocking himself out. Scamp apologizes for running away, while Tramp concedes that he could loosen up a little, perhaps taking his son out to see the river once in a while. The dogs return to the junkyard, where Scamp retrieves his collar. Scamp also traps Buster under piles of junk, and the other dogs abandon him to find owners.
Angel accompanies Scamp and Tramp home, where the family decides to adopt her. While Jim gives Scamp a bath, the former Junkyard Dogs have found owners for themselves.
