while i didn't mind the original The Shaggy Dog(1959),i thought this
sequel was not too good.i found it way too silly and absurd,and not
realistic.by that,i'm not talking about the premise,a man transforms
into a dog.that i can accept as being within the confines of the
movie.what i found unrealistic was how most of the characters acted and
or reacted.too say there was some overacting going on would be a
massive understatement.i also didn't find the characters endearing.i
did however find them annoying.and the acting in general was
unimpressive.and i found the ending abrupt with no real resolution.i'd
say this would be a good family movie,a family comprised of only 3 year
olds.maybe they ran out of money or time.whatever.this film had none of
the fun or charm of the original.for me,The Shaggy D.A.is a weak 2/5

With Dean, Jones, Keenan Wynn, Michael McGreevey and Tim Conway you can't go wrong with these incredible character actors. This is when Disney was great! As far as i'm concerned Disney died after The Rescuers (1978,1979).
Wilby Daniels tries to recover the stolen Borgia ring that transforms him into a dog as he's running for District Atty. Don't miss Conways hilarious scene in the Warehouse with the Security Guard..."the sannifran in the rectafrazzins condensing"
One of my top four fav's from the once-great, no longer palatable Disney Company.

A Dog's Tale Feb. 25 2007
By Lonnie E. Holder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie was a sequel to the clever 1959 movie "The Shaggy Dog." That movie was charming and clever, packing a lot of humor and numerous subplots into a relatively short film. Unfortunately, this film is a pale shadow of the earlier film. The jokes are often forced and a viewer can easily see that the special effects used to make the dogs talk are film loops of dogs chewing. I recommend this film only for people who are loyal Disney fans or fans of the numerous well-known actors in this film.

Wilby Daniels (Tommy Kirk) encountered a Borgia ring in the 1959 movie "The Shaggy Dog." His transmutation into a sheep dog stopped at the end of the movie and the ring was put into safe keeping. Seventeen years later Wilby Daniels, now played by Disney regular Dean Jones, is an attorney living in a town full of corruption, lead by district attorney "Honest" John Slade, played by another Disney regular, Keenan Wynn. After being a victim of the rampant crime in Medfield, Wilby decides it is time to challenge Slade for the position of district attorney.

Unfortunately for Daniels, the Borgia ring has resurfaced and has already worked wonders for his hair; and his nose; and his tail! In a reprise of the original movie, we see Wilby turn into a sheepdog at the worst possible times. Wilby also manages to vex Tim Conway, who keeps trying to win a bet that his sheepdog Elwood can talk.

The rest of the movie is routinely scripted with slapstick jokes and scenes that are variations of similar jokes and themes from 1970's-era Disney movies, which is really the problem with this movie. The movie is okay, but uninspired. The movie struggles to be funny. The minimal tension in the movie is forced and generally unbelievable. The movie comes across as being tired.

In spite of the rehashed plot, the tired jokes and the slapstick, there are things to like about this movie. Somehow Suzanne Pleshette rises above the script in her role as wife Betty Daniels. Though the character of "Honest" John Slade is a stereotype of similar characters in other Disney films, Keenan Wynn is always fun to watch. The movie had other shining moments. The cherry pie fight scene was funny. Though the talking dog bit was over-used, the dog pound breakout had humorous moments.

Other well-known stars from that era include Vic Tayback (a regular in the television show "Alice") as crook Eddie Roschak, Dick Van Patten ("Eight Is Enough") as Slade's assistant, and Jo Ann Worley (whose first role was in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" in 1960, but became famous on Rowan and Martin's "Laugh-In"; Worley also appeared in the 1962 Disney space comedy "Moon Pilot") as Tim Conway's roller derby girl friend Katrinka Muggelberg.

In the 1950's and the 1960's Disney excelled at light comedy. The movie "The Shaggy Dog" is one of those light comedies. Unfortunately, Disney struggled in the late 1960's and in the 1970's with weak plots and weak scripts. This sequel to "The Shaggy Dog" was one of those that suffered from a weak script. Fortunately, there are just enough moments in this movie to make the movie worth having if you are a Dean Jones fan, a big Disney fan, or a fan of any of the other actors in this movie. I am usually comfortable with my rating for a movie, but if I could I would have rated this one three and a half stars.

Good luck!

TIM CONWAY SAVES "THE SHAGGY D.A." March 16 2006
By Forrest C. Hopson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Disney's "The Shaggy D.A." is an inferior follow-up to the original classic, "The Shaggy Dog." The film stars Disney regular, Dean Jones, as Wilby Daniels (the part originally played by Tommy Kirk), who is now married to beautiful Suzanne Pleshette and is running for district attorney. Some crooks steal the cursed ring that was responsible for turning Wilby into a sheep dog when he was a teenager. The crooks thought the ring might be worth a fortune but discover no one will buy it, so they sell it to Tim Conway, whose an ice cream salesman and owns a big shaggy sheep dog named Elwood. Of course, he reads the encryption on the ring and Dean Jones turns into the sheep dog! Tim Conway saves "The Shaggy D.A." with his comic genius and has several funny moments throughout the film. Dean Jones is one of my favorite Disney actors, but this isn't his finest film. His best performances are in "Blackbeard's Ghost," "The Snowball Express," and the classic "The Love Bug." The dvd receives a very good transfer and is in the widescreen format. Extras include a making-of documentary with interviews with Tim Conway and Dick Van Patten, which give some insights on the film's set during production. I recommend "The Shaggy D.A." to Disney dvd collector's and fans of Dean Jones, and especially Tim Conway. "The Shaggy D.A." is a fair companion to "The Shaggy Dog" and a nice addition to the Disney dvd library.
"We've been robbed. Again!" Feb. 1 2015
By Einsatz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Oh dear, I wish there was something nice I could say about this belated sequel to the 1959 classic. Whether or not you will like this movie depends entirely on how well you like and/or appreciate the cast involved. It features a lot of stock actors over utilized in television and infrequently in feature films. Actors who depend on playing the same character no matter what the project. The names may change but Keenan Wynn blusters as the same villain he's played in countless films. The same goes for Dean Jones as Dean Jones supposedly playing the adult version of Wilby Daniels who's trying to run for the position of District Attorney (but it's just Dean Jones doing what he always does). No surprise, Vic Tayback is typecast as a thug in organized crime. Warren Berlinger and Richard Bakalyan play crooks. Tim Conway stumbles and bumbles as the owner of the dog Wilby keeps changing into. He's involved in a running `gag' trying to get the dog to speak or sing to win a bet (it wasn't humorous the first time they used this bit so doing it repeatedly didn't help). Dick Van Patten lurks while making funny faces. Jo Anne Worley was not a film actress, her claim to semi-fame was Laugh-In. Pat McCormick has a bit part as a bartender. Suzanne Pleshette was not used to great advantage. It was nice though to see Hans Conried wander through as a professor and expert on the ring in question.

Billed as "light satire of American politics," this comedy suffers from repetitious jokes and silly setups to help promote the particular humor of the actor involved. It also features a scene of a neighbor taking a potshot at the dog/Wilby with a shotgun.....within the city limits, in a neighborhood, no thought to who might get hit. This is never a funny joke.

There's the obligatory chase sequence and in utter desperation, there's also a food fight with pies. (I'm still trying to get over Piglet (John Fiedler) trying to kill Wilby in the dog pound.)
"Shaggy Dog" sequel an enjoyable romp Nov. 13 2012
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
1976's THE SHAGGY D.A. was Disney's long-awaited follow-up to their beloved comedy favourite "The Shaggy Dog", which had in fact been the highest-grossing film released in 1959. The biggest mystery is why it took almost 17 years for Disney execs to greenlight the further adventures of Wilby Daniels.

We follow the now-adult Wilby (Dean Jones) as he once again falls prey to the cursed Borgia ring and turns into a sheepdog - but this time, the stakes are much higher. City lawyer Wilby is campaigning for the position of District Attorney against corrupt "Honest John" Slade (Disney favourite Keenan Wynn), who canoodles with criminals and profits from a team of burglars who recently terrorised the Daniels house. Those same crooks pilfer the Borgia ring from the museum where it has lain dormant since the events of the original "Shaggy Dog".

Realising that the ring will be near-impossible to dispose of, they sell it to Tim (Tim Conway), an unsuspecting icecream truck driver who plans to give it to his girlfriend, co-worker and roller-derby champ Katrinka Muggelberg (Jo Anne Worley). It doesn't take long until the magical words written on the ring are recited and Wilby trades places with Tim's sheepdog Elwood - and once Slade discovers the Borgia curse and it's link to Wilby, the Daniels family must race against time to track the ring down before Wilby's sheepdog persona becomes permanent!

This is a typical Disney comedy from the 1970s, packed with all the ingredients which became standard features for most of the live-action product for the studio during this period. The emphasis is heavily geared toward slapstick, silly car chases and pratfalls. When the Borgia ring is believed to have accidentally fallen into the mixture for a batch of cherry pies, cue the obligatory pie-fight scene. It's all very charming and entertaining, but the Disney films of the 70's, sadly, do all tend to blur together through their reliance on cartoonish antics rather than solid storytelling, which marked most of the live-action product released during Walt Disney's lifetime.

The casting is fine. Reuniting for their 3rd and final Disney pairing (following "The Ugly Dachshund" and "Blackbeard's Ghost"), Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette play Wilby and his wife Betty; though one wishes that Pleshette had a slightly larger, less reactive role to fill within the story - in the last portion she barely even features. While the Disney traditionalist in me wanted to see Tommy Kirk return as Wilby, I can understand why long-standing Disney comedy leading man Dean Jones took over the part. Tim Conway and Jo Anne Worley are fun in their supporting roles.
