An Average Teenager Turns Top Dog.
|The first live action movie ever produced by Walt Disney is on DVD for the first time ever! Fred MacMurray heads an all-star cast that includes Jean Hagen, Tim Considine, Kevin Corcoran, and Annette Funicello in her big screen debut. 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!|

Editor's NoteFilled with impossible situations and hilarious gags, this comic allegory follows the adventures of Wilby Daniels (Tommy Kirk) after he finds an ancient mysterious ring and unintentionally casts a hex on himself and turns into a huge sheepdog. The only other odd thing is that Wilby still has his voice intact. Back and forth he goes, constantly changing from the pooch to his human self. While this amuses his brother, it positively amazes his neighbors, the local police, and a brunette beauty on his street. As if his bad hair days weren't enough, Wilby soon learns that a group of spies has moved into the neighborhood. This initially bad news might turn into his chance to perform a final heroic act that could free him from the spell altogether. The resulting comedy is a well-tailored adolescent romp directed with great pacing by Charles Barton.
