In 1911, just two days before the Fourth of July, Lady and Tramp have three well-mannered daughters, Annette, Danielle, and Colette, 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 doghouse outside as punishment. His parents, Tramp and Lady, are distraught that their son cannot settle down and live in a home. Tramp tries to reason with Scamp, but loses his temper at his son's insistent desire to be wild. Scamp then sees a pack of stray dogs harassing the dogcatcher and becomes intrigued. He manages to break free from the chain and runs off to find the pack.
Scamp finds a young member of the pack, Angel, and the two go to a junkyard with the pack, named the Junkyard Dogs. Just after Scamp leaves, Lady walks out to reconcile with her son but notices that he has disappeared. She alerts Tramp and the Darlings start a search party. Scamp attempts to join the Junkyard Dogs right away, but their leader, Buster, gives him the first test in the alley, where Scamp has to grab a tin can from a large, savage dog named Reggie. This results in a chase involving him and Angel; they manage to evade Reggie, who is caught by the dogcatcher. They then head to a park, where Sparky, another member, tells a colorful story about Tramp escaping from a 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 is in awe that his father used to be a Junkyard Dog. After Scamp and Angel narrowly escape from a train and fall into a river, they start to fall in love.
Meanwhile, Scamp and Angel find Scamp's parents, along with Jim Dear, Darling, Jock, and Trusty, as they search for him. Angel, who was once a house pet herself, is disgusted that Scamp would choose living on the streets over a loving family. Later, as the Dear family has a picnic, the Junkyard Dogs see them and Buster realizes that Scamp is Tramp's son. He then tells him to steal a chicken from his family's picnic, claiming it was the second and final test for Scamp to join the Junkyard Dogs. Scamp does so and heads into an alley, where Tramp confronts and asks him to come home. Scamp refuses and chooses to stay with Buster. Buster, pleased to see Tramp distraught, officially declares Scamp a Junkyard Dog by removing his collar.
While Scamp celebrates his newfound freedom, Angel scolds him for not listening to his father, and reminds him that his family loves him. Scamp then reveals that Angel wants to be a house pet, and Buster exiles her from the pack. She leaves the Junkyard, angry at Scamp. Having a change of heart, Scamp searches for her. Buster, still wishing revenge on Tramp, arranges Scamp's capture by the dogcatcher. Realizing this, Scamp wishes that he was home with his family. Angel sees Scamp on his way to the pound and goes to alert Tramp. Meanwhile, Scamp is placed in a cage with Reggie. Tramp, arriving just in time, fights off Reggie and rescues his son. 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. Angel accompanies Scamp and Tramp home, and the family decides to adopt her.
Cast and charactersEdit
Many of the original characters make a return, including Tony and Joe from Tony's.
- Scott Wolf as Scamp (or "Whirlwind" by the way Tramp calls him), Lady and the Tramp's rambunctious son who bears a strong resemblance to Tramp. He starts out as a playful, frisky, yet stubborn and selfish puppy, but has a total change of heart for his family after seeing that Buster lied to him, and because of the fact that he suddenly realized he was not safe out there in the streets. Roger Bart provides his singing vocals. Andrew Collins served as the supervising animator for him.
- Alyssa Milano as Angel, a Pomeranian mix Chihuahua who was once a pet and Scamp's love interest. She has a kind, yet spunky personality. At the end of the film, she is adopted by Jim Dear and Darling. She too bares a nickname for Scamp due to his inexperiences with the streets, calling him "tenderfoot", which is another reason why she has a crush on him. Susan Egan provides her singing voice. Andrew Collins served as the supervising animator for her.
- Chazz Palminteri as Buster, a Rottweiler/Doberman Pinscher mix and the leader of the Junkyard Dogs. He used to be the protégé of Tramp and is angry that Tramp left to become a house pet with Lady. He thus changes his moto after Tramp left to "Buster's trouble, is Buster's trouble." Jess Harnell provides his singing voice.
- Jeff Bennett as Tramp, a mutt and the father of Scamp, Annette, Danielle, and Colette. Tramp has become accustomed to living in a home during his time as a pet. He is portrayed as a loving, but firm and concerned father, and also has an important role in this film. Nevertheless, he still has a few "street smarts" to fall back on, due to his near-old age. Bennett also voices Jock and Trusty, a Scottish terrier and a bloodhound who are the neighbors and friends of Lady and Tramp and join Scamp's family in a search to find him; and the Dogcatcher, who, in a style reminiscent of Don Knotts's portrayal of Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show, chases after the Junkyard Dogs, determined to capture them.
- Jodi Benson as Lady (or "Pidge", which Tramp always calls her because of her naiveté in the previous film), the mother of Annette, Scamp, Collette, and Danielle and Tramp's mate. Due to her now being a mother of four, most of her naivety from the first film has been replaced with a sense of responsibility. She views Scamp's behavior in a more understanding light than Tramp does. Lianne Hughes served as the supervising animator for her.
- Bill Fagerbakke as Mooch, an Old English Sheepdog who is fairly dim-witted but enthusiastic. He is seen playing with children at the end of the film. Kevin Peaty served as the supervising animator for him.
- Mickey Rooney as Sparky, an Irish Wolfhound who used to know Tramp, and tells a colorful but untrue tale of how Tramp came to leave the Junkyard Dogs. Kevin Peaty served as the supervising animator for him.
- Cathy Moriarty as Ruby, an Afghan Hound who has a soft spot for puppies. Kevin Peaty served as the supervising animator for her.
- Bronson Pinchot as Francois, a Boston Terrier with a French accent. Kevin Peaty served as the supervising animator for him.
- Debi Derryberry and Kath Soucie as Annette, Danielle, and Colette, Scamp's well-behaved and polite sisters who greatly resemble their mother Lady but each have different colored collars on their necks. They are a little on the prissy side, and think only of themselves and show no respect for Scamp, until the middle of the film when they actually start to miss him. Danielle is white collared, and by far, like Scamp, the rowdiest as well as a little on the daft side, Collette is red collared, with long ears and a very snobbish personality, and Annette is blue collared, and quite bossy. Their actual names are not mentioned in the film, but in the end credits. While they are at odds with Scamp at times, they do love him, due to the fact that he is their brother.
- Rob Paulsen as Otis, a stray dog in the dog pound.
- Nick Jameson and Barbara Goodson as Jim Dear and Darling, the owners of Lady, Tramp, Annette, Scamp, Collette, and Danielle.
- Andrew McDonough as Junior, Jim Dear and Darling's son and the owner of Lady, Tramp, Annette, Scamp, Collette, and Danielle.
- Tress MacNeille as Aunt Sarah, the aunt of Junior and the owner of Si and Am. She shows no respect for Scamp, believing him to be a "monster".
- Mary Kay Bergman and Tress MacNeille as Si and Am, Aunt Sarah's two Siamese cats. They have a much more minor appearance in this film than in the original.
- Jim Cummings as Tony, the waiter of Tony's.
- Michael Gough as Joe, Tony's assistant. Both he and Tony have only minor appearances in this film.
- Frank Welker as Reggie, an extremely vicious and very large bulldog mix. He chases Scamp in a street, but gets caught by the dog catcher, who unexpectedly sends him flying to a tomato stand. Later, he is chained when he attempts to kill Scamp, who is in the pound, but is fought off by Tramp. Reggie can be noticed because of his short tail and chipped canine.
- April Winchell as Mrs. Mahoney, a woman on the streets who wears a wig and carries around a dog in a purse. On two occasions involving dog chases, she gets knocked over and her wigs get knocked off at the same time which publicly humiliates her. Of the two rounds in which this happens, she actually ends up completely losing the wig she had on in the first dog chase. Her name is not mentioned in the film, but is in the end credits.
- Scratchy, a mongrel dog who is plagued by fleas and fur loss.
