  • Nancy - A she-cat. A courteous and kind sort, who dreams of becoming an actress and stays with Fagin's fellowship.
  • Princess Annushka (Voiced by Barbara Goodson) - A dog. She is a runaway Russian princess who gives little regard for the boys and stays with Fagin's fellowship.
  • Fagin (Voiced by Bob MacGarva) - A red fox. Leader of the fellowship of young thieves.
  • Mr. Bumble - A wolf. The master of the workhouse. Frequently sends out his two cat goons to try to capture Oliver and if possible his two friends as well.
  • Bill Sykes - A brown bear. A brutish ruffian of a man who makes threats by extortion and intimidation to gain his money.


Oliver escapes the orphan house and is on the run. While on the run he meets Dodger and together they go to Fagin. Fagin is the boss of a little gang and Oliver must prove himself, if he is worthy to stay; the orphan lord will stop at nothing to bring Oliver back.

Oliver and his friends, Dodger and Charlie, are making it a mission to find Oliver's mother and they make adventures along the way.
