Editorial Reviews

DOG CITY: THE MOVIE is an Emmy® award-winning Jim Henson’s Comedy Classic. Directed by Jim Henson, this parody of the film noir gangster films takes us through the busy but dangerous town of Dog City, teeming with colorful Muppet Dog characters. Rowlf the dog is your guide through the underside of canine life during the 1930s in Dog City. Our hero, Ace, enters the world of bulldog gangsters and terrier molls when he inherits a saloon, “The Doghouse,” from his late Uncle Harry. Unwilling to pay protection money, Ace finds himself the target of Bugsy, a bulldog bully who owns most of Dog City, and also happens to be one of the foremost proponents of senseless violence. Ace also comes nose to nose with a beautiful runaway collie named Colleen. Colleen and Ace team up to take on Bugsy and his thugs in the tumultuous, dog-eat-dog world of Dog City.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pun Filled Dog City doesn't disappoint! June 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dog City- a Henson classic. Full of puns and running gags (literally) if you are a Muppet/Henson fan you have got to get this show that has gone to the dogs! Hero Ace You (gesuntight) beats the bad guys, claims back his Uncle's Bar and wins the girl! Don't worry cat lovers, there is even one cat in this show. Would have given it 5 stars but it is too short! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but no extra features June 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We have been looking forward to the release of this DVD for many years. I however am very disappointed that the DVD contains none of the extras that were part of the Jim Henson Hour television production. Items in that production that are not on the DVD are:
1. The Jim Henson introduction.
2. The Muppets skit.
3. The two Bean Bunny skits.
4. The making of Dog City skit.
5. The Lee Majors skit take off on the Six Million Dollar Man.
These were half the fun of Jim Henson Hour television show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Highly disappointed for only the movie. November 21, 2011
By Andrew
Format:DVD
So not a whole lot of people would remember this but this was a great film, but the film was introduced through a Jim Henson Hour deal. It had a lot of great shorts and the making of dog city (shown by dogs). It was great. My sister got me this when I was in the hospital and was stoked and brought a smile. The movie is great, but not having behind the scenes, bean bunny trailers, kermit going crazy trying to find the reel to the film, and a robot guy or whatever is just highly disappointed. But shouldn't let it stop you from seeing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun show! November 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since The Muppets got bought by Disney, certain specials that featured Kermit the Frog had Kermit footage cut out of them a little less enjoyable...but for some reason, they were able to keep Rowlf the Dog uncut from this film noir comedy special and the story itself is a hoot. It's a must have for Muppet fans not to mention Rowlf fans

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Henson film!!! July 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hilarious! I am an adult and I laughed out loud at this. Watch it with the whole family and everybody will get a kick out of it. It's Henson at his best doing what he does best--puns all over the place! Not to mention it is beautifully shot and just looks gorgeous. If you are a Henson fan this is a MUST HAVE in the collection. If you are an aspiring filmmaker, study this thing--the care and precise-ness that went into every shot is evident. Get this now!

Classic movie with a great sense of original Jim Henson humor. A must see and must have for any Henson Studios fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for toddlers
My son *loves* the Muppets. However, this one is a let down. The Muppet Movie (new and old versions) and Space Muppets are his favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great classic
Classic Jim Henson what more can you say except at the end "Dog Gone". I was glad to find this in DVD to replace my lost VHS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Henson
This isn't Henson's best work-- but it's cute. Younger kids will enjoy the corniness and slapstick humor. And it's got Rolf the dog in it! Read more

Like many have said, the first half and ending halfs of this Jim Henson Hour episode have been edited out and it's basically just the Dog City film part of The Jim Henson Hour. Read more

I wasn't that thrilled with this dvd.It was far from one of Jim Henson's best movies. I didn't rate this very high.
