Fred MacMurray heads an all-star cast that includes Jean Hagen, Tim Considine, Kevin Corcoran, and Annette Funicello in THE SHAGGY DOG. 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!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that even kids who balk at black-and-white movies and hokey special effects will find lots of laughs in this well-behaved and housebroken comedy. It's occasionally too slow for 6-, 7- and 8-year-olds, but they'll laugh at the dog's antics. Older kids can follow all the plot threads easily, and will giggle at the slapstick humor. Teens will enjoy if they give it a chance.
