As friends to humans or to each other, these big screen kitties and pups remind us of the important things in life.
Sometimes the impossible can become possible, if you’re AWESOME. Everyone—dog, cat, human, or hamster—needs a hero sometimes. Someone to remind them that, despite impossible odds, they will do what’s right. Bolt, Mittens, and Rhino remind us of this every time we watch Bolt. (And, yes—they are AWESOME.)
2. The Adventures of Milo & Otis
Sometimes it takes a true friend to help you find your way back home. After Milo accidentally falls into a box that floats down the river, his friend Otis follows him through thick and thin until the two pals are reunited and eventually make their way home.
3. Air Bud
Team sports can be a great way to make new friends. Moving to a new town can be awkward, and making new friends isn’t always easy. But when you’ve got a best friend like Buddy by your side, anything is possible both on and off the court! (And the football field, and the soccer field, and the baseball field, and… well, you get the picture.)
4. That Darn Cat!
Even the purrfect crime can be unraveled with a little help from your friends! A pair of wily bankrobbers don't stand a chance against DC (Darn Cat) and Hayley Mills in this Disney classic.
5. Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
No distance is too far when you’re trying to get to your best friend. When Shadow, Chance, and Sassy set out to find their owners, they must overcome some initial differences (“Cats rule and dogs drool,” says Sassy) in order to band together and complete their incredible journey.
