Editorial Reviews

The first live action movie ever produced by Walt Disney is on DVD! Fred MacMurray heads an all-star cast that includes Jean Hagen, Tim Considine, Kevin Corcoran, Tommy Kirk, and Annette Funicello in her big screen debut. After years of on-the-job clashes with cranky canines, mail carrier Wilson Daniels (MacMurray) sees man's best friend as his worst enemy. This makes for one hairy situation when a magical ring accidentally transforms his teenage son Wilby (Kirk) into a lumbering sheepdog! Can Wilby break the spell and foil a team of international spies, or will both he and his dad wind up in the doghouse? Packed with sidesplitting antics, slapstick chases, and hilarious sight gags, this madcap adventure will tickle the funny bone of every two- (and four-) footed member of your family!

I understand that Tim Allen has "reimagined" this film, but I don't know how it can compare to the original. Fred MacMurray, always reliable and loads of fun, is not the central character. The Mickey Mouse Club supplied the main characters. Indeed, Tommy Kirk & Kevin Corcoran carry this film, with able support from Tim Considine, Annette Funicello & Roberta Sherwood. There's also delightful support from Jean Hagen & Cecil Kellaway. I have no end of admiration for this original. Certainly, there are plot holes, but who really cares? I have the VHS, and then I saw the DVD and snatched it up. The DVD has 2 versions: a colorized version, but I have no use for that; the B&W is in a slight Widescreen. This is one of Disney's first live action comedies; Tommy Kirk is especially good, and had just completed "Old Yeller"; Kevin Corcoran was later excellent as "Toby Tyler". Disney studio were famous for their animated features, and wonderful documentaries ("White Wilderness", etc.). Mr. MacMurray later proved a hit in "The Absent-Minded Professor" and it's sequel, "Son of Flubber". My big concern is WHY anyone thinks they have to remake these wonderful capsules of Hollywood treasures. Robin Williams in "Flubber", and now Tim Allen in a remake? The originals are GREAT; the lazy studio heads should start looking for wonderful new material. We all know there's plenty of it out there. Those Sundance darlings, if promoted correctly, could kick some serious butt. Still, I encourage anyone with kids to check this out. It's WAY too much fun to be ignored. BTW: Remember the Mickey Mouse Club...the Hardy Boys...Spin & Marty? I do. I was especially intrigued with the Hardy Boys' "Mystery of the Applegate Treasure". Wouldn't that be fun on DVD? Anyone agree? PS~The DVD has a fond, loving tribute to Fred MacMurray.Read more ›

In the hit and miss world of Disney Home Video DVD releases we are treated to a rather suprising move by Disney. "The Shaggy Dog", a genuinely delightful fare, will be released in its original glorious B&W, widescreen format, as only Walt would have it. Also included is a colorized, pan & scan version for those who folks who just can't seem to tolerate those "black bars". This combined format should have been done with "The Absent Minded Professor". This seems like a no-brainer as this production should satisfy everyone. So why the hack job on the more modern "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken"? (which BTW is in its OAR in Region 2) You have a better chance of winning "Mega Millions" than guessing which Disney film will get proper treatment.

Update: 03.08.06

The B&W widescreen version is fabulous with sharp contrast and good lighting. Included with the B&W OAR version is commentary from the Shaggy Dog "Kids". Their remarks are delightful and clue us in on where many pieces of apparel in the colorized version don't match the original colors; i.e. one of Francesca's gowns was originally gold but colorized to a sickly blue in one scene changing to an equally pallor green in the scene to follow. So much for the dreaded colorization process.

It's an apples and oranges comparison between the Colorized, Pan & Scan and the B&W OAR editions. I'm just ever grateful that Disney (hopefully) finally has heard the pleas of the Region 1 consumer; at least for this classic. We can live in hope that they continue in this reponsible manner. Robert Iger, I hope comments like these reach your desk because writing Disney directly gets nowhere.

This is one of the funniest Disney movies they ever made. The adults are goofy, the kids adorable, and the exchanges between the two brothers....priceless. I'd forgotten how much I love it.

This movie has kids and teens, animals, fun music, a magic ring that changes a person into a dog, spies, fumbling police, mixed up identities, fast cars, action and chase scenes, and a suffering dad who has to take the brunt of his boys antics including an attempt to prove he is crazy by a psychologist. This is an important film as the first live action comedy made by Disney introducing a popular series of formula Disney comedies through the sixties. The best parts of this films formula were mimicked in so many others that Disney made later.

It is also the first Disney film to feature Fred MacMurray. This was a comeback vehicle for the actor who was recently languishing without much work since the type of film he was known for was no longer produced. But after this film he was restored as an actor and went on to do many other films for Disney, including the "Absent Minded Professor" and its sequel "Son of Flubber","Bon Voyage", "The Happiest Millionaire", "Charley and the Angel", and "Follow Me Boys".

Tommy Kirk (perhaps starred in more Disney films than any other actor) is also in this film as Freds son "Wilby" and the hero, of sorts. After all, he is the one turns into a dog with the accidental help of a magic ring. Juvenile Disney star Moochie (Kevin Corcoran)plays his younger brother, and is outright hilareous with his show stealing antics. The ever charming Annete Funicello is here, along with a couple of other Mouseketeers in bit parts. But mouseketeer Roberta Shore plays the sweet Franceska, the new neighbor that Wilby falls for. Her dog looks just like the dog that Wilby turns into when he is enchanted, so Wilby takes his place to find out how good a dog's life really is. But Wilby soon finds out that her villainous father is a dangerous foreign spy.
