The Adventures of Milo and Otis is a 1986 Japanese adventure drama film about two animals, the titular characters, Milo (an orange tabby cat) and Otis (a fawn pug). The original Japanese version was released on June 27, 1986, and the reworked English version was released on August 25, 1989.
Initially filmed as Koneko Monogatari (子猫物語 A Kitten's Story; alternative English title: The Adventures of Chatran) in Kitakyūshū, Japan, the film was completely revamped, trimmed and westernized with added narration by Dudley Moore. (Shigeru Tsuyuki narrated the Japanese version.) Director Masanori Hata and associate director Kon Ichikawa edited the film together from 400,000 feet of footage, which is roughly 40.3 hours, shot over a period of four years.
