I think the movie wasn't as smooth and polished as it could have been. However, I loved the graphics and the story itself. Follows the main tropes for a children's movie where the lower-class male is trying to win the heart of the upper-class female. For example, there's the scene where the male seems to be leaving, only for some reason to return and somehow save the female. Similar movies in this regard include Anastasia (1997), Aladdin (1992), Lady and the Tramp (1955), The AristoCats (1970). Of the five movies (including Alpha and Omega), four start with the letter "A" and three feature animals. I guess Disney's A Bug's Life (1998) has the class difference. I guess only Anastasia and Aladdin qualify in being similar to Alpha and Omega with respect to a marriage that is forbidden by some royal law. The point is, the plot is straightforward, but still a welcome one. Of course if we're talking about forbidden love, there's The Little Mermaid (1989).

The animation is beautiful, but the dialogue is kind of lacking.
Lol, well the mother's dialogue is actually pretty funny.
One of Humphrey's friend sounds like Timon from The Lion King.
Hahahaha. Perfect.
I like how the movie tries to keep things funny.
