Product Description

Amazon.ca

In this sequel to The Shaggy Dog, Wilby Daniels (Dean Jones) has grown up and married Suzanne Pleshette, and has a young son. When the family comes home to find the house cleaned out by "movers"--who Daniels knows are protected by the corrupt District Attorney John Slade (Keenan Wynn)--he decides to run against Slade in the next election. Meanwhile, hoodlums connected to the same crime syndicate get hold of the mystical ring that turns poor Daniels (via mid-'70s special effects) into Elwood, the dog owned by the local ice-cream vendor (Tim Conway). Lots of chase scenes, a little roller derby action, and some cherry pie throwing complicate both Daniels's bid for office and his quest to remain a human being. Kids will enjoy the last half of this 91-minute movie the most as Daniels spends most of the time in his dog persona and because his son becomes part of the plot to undo the bad guys. This G-rated feature is safe for all ages, but kids probably won't sit through it until age 4 or 5. --Kimberly Heinrichs

4.0 out of 5 stars The Shaggy DA Nov. 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The better sequel to the Shaggy dog, "The Shaggy DA"
with an all star Disney cast is one of Disney's great
comedies of the 70's. Released in 1976, and starring
Dean Jones, Suzzanne Pleshette, Tim Conway and Keenan
Wynn, this movie provides enjoyment of all ages. Wilby
Daniels (Dean Jones), decides to oppose District Attorney
John Slade (Keenan Wynn) for the next elections, aiming
to clean up the city and destroy organised crime. Knowing
that Slade has connections in organized crime, and the
fact that his house had been robbed twice, Daniels pursues
popularity in a strong election campaign, with his wife
(Suzanne Pleshette)giving him great support. The borja ring,
after being kept in the local musuem, had been stolen, and
the thieves with no knowledge of it's mystic powers, sell
it. After a round of hands possess the ring, it finally
ends up in Slades possession, and after a series of
embarrassements in which Daniels is transformed into a
shaggy dog, Slade realizes that he can use the ring to
blackmail Daniels out of the elections. Daniels pursues
slade with ice cream vendor (Tim Conway) (the real shaggy
dog owner) and Daniels son. The ring is finally returned
to its rightfull owners and Slade is removed from office,
making Wilby Daniels the District Attorney. This 91 min
movie, rated G is a great laugh and provides the whole
family with entertainment. Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette
have worked together in another Disney favourite,
"Blackbeard's Ghost" 1969, and Dean Jones has starred in many
Disney favourites, such as race car driver Jim Douglas in "Herbie -
The Love Bug" 1969, "Herbie goes to montie Carlo" 1977.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Shaggy Dog, The Shaggy D.A. Jan. 12 2004
By betsy
Format:VHS Tape
I agree that these entertaining movies for children are great. However, when one of these movies comes out everyone wants to own an Old English Sheepdog. This is a HIGH maintenence breed, stubborn and NEED a great deal of training. They can be head strong and because they are a herding breed are NOT good around very young children. They view the children as sheep that are to be herded and contained. Children do get knocked down and hurt. Before you entertain the thought of getting one of these dogs reseach the breed and make sure you know what you are getting into as many a cute puppy are given up to rescue groups because they nip and require a tremendous amount of work on the owners part. The little 10 week old puppy can grow to weigh well over 100 lbs. I work with an Old English Sheepdog Rescue and the last thing we need is more abandoned sheepdogs and puppy mill puppies. I hope that Disney will encourage adoption at the end of their remake of this movie coming out in 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Corny but Really Cute! Jan. 23 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I never saw the first movie The Shaggy Dog starring Fred MacMurray, Tommy Kirk and Annette Funicello but being a child of the 70's I grew up watching the live-action Disney movies that came out in the theaters in the 70's and I fondly recall going to see this 1976 sequel with my friends when I was about 11 years old and enjoying it and about a year ago while changing the channels I came across this movie on TV and watched it again after all those years and while it can be said that it's a little corny and the special effects can be a little cheesy I think it's a really cute movie that both children and their parents can enjoy and the slapstick humor is fun to watch and Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette and the rest of the actors were very good and I'm glad it's coming out on DVD and I hope it will include a widescreen version and not just pan and scan! I also will have to try and see if I can rent the Tommy Kirk Shaggy Dog movie since I have never seen it.
