Disney creates a whole new breed of comedy with a character unlike any other. Meet Spot, a clever little dog with big dreams of becoming a real boy in Disney's hilarious critical favorite The New York Times calls "marvelously quick-witted and gloriously goofy." When Spot finds out that a crazy scientist can make his wish come true, he takes a cross-country trek with his best friend and master Leonard and their mom. However, Dr. Krank's experiments are a little less than perfect, and it will take Leonard and his pet pals to right this genetic wrong. This offbeat animated adventure has "something for everyone, parents and children alike," raves The Washington Post. Make no bones about it -- your whole family will be begging for more!

This is a movie based on the series of the same name. This cute musical comedy is smart and silly.
The opening scene sets up the premise of the whole movie: Spot (played by Nathan Lane) is dreaming that he's watching Pinocchio and he says that he'd give anything if he could change into a real boy like him. Spot wants this more than anything. Will his wish come true? You’re gonna have to watch and find out = )
I am not typically a fan of musicals but I really enjoyed this film and all of its musical numbers. They are creative and witty. When this movie is on my kids usually sit quiet and are captivated by the sharp plot and catchy musicals. I would definitely recommend this movie.
Thanks for reading my review. I hope this is helpful to you.
There are several clever musical numbers in this film, perhaps the most subversive animated Disney musical of all time, the songs reflecting the twisted spirit of Gary Baseman's drawings. And there are so many clever gags and in-jokes throughout the film, that you'll keep hitting the pause button to catch all of them. The send-ups of such Disney classics as 'Pinocchio' and 'Snow White' is almost worth the admission alone.
For those who couldn't afford a ticket to see Nathan Lane in 'The Producers' on Broadway, you can buy this DVD at less than a fraction of the cost for a 'Producers' ticket, and have just as much fun. The animation is colorful enough to keep the attention of the kiddies while the jokes and songs will keep adults in stitches. I watched this movie with my niece and nephew and we all had a great time. For fans of the art of Gary Baseman, this DVD is a must-have. Bonus features include a profile of Gary Baseman with interviews with Nathan Lane, David Ogden Stiers, Jerry Stiller and Wallace Shawn. There are two hilarious deleted scenes, a music video, and a special 'songs only' selection with lyrics. Treat yourself to this quirky, kooky laugh-filled Disney movie
I highly recommend this forgotten movie for children.
