‘The Adventures of Milo and Otis’

There’s something delightfully pure and fresh about Masanori Hata’s 1989 children’s film, an epic tale about male bonding between an orange kitten (Milo) and a pug-nosed puppy (Otis) that’s full of clean sunlight and waving grass. Populated entirely by bears, foxes and snakes, as well as the usual barnyard assortment, it generates the blissfully dry sense of wonder that the best children’s books and movies do (Showtime Thursday at 12:35 p.m.).
