Canines star in each of three adaptations of famous children's books: George Zion's Harry the Dirty Dog, Peggy Rathman's Officer Buckle and Gloria, and Marjorie Flack's Angus and the Ducks. When Harry, a white dog with black spots, runs away at bath time, his playful curiosity soon finds him filthy and longing for his family. Imagine his surprise when his family doesn't recognize this strange black dog with white spots. Gloria, a newly acquired police dog, brings a fresh life and enthusiasm to Officer Buckle's previously monotonous school safety speeches, but when Officer Buckle discovers that he's being out-shone the newfound friendship is threatened. Both Harry the Dirty Dog and Officer Buckle and Gloria are animated presentations that faithfully adhere to the original illustrations. In stark contrast, Angus and the Ducks features real-life photography of a curious young Scottie Dog that goes exploring to see just what's making the funny noise on the other side of the tall green hedge.
