This one lives up to the Disney charm, outshining the original, and not a single parent is killed in the process.

The Shaggy Dog is classic Disney. It's a bit lost on the kids of today - especially the younger ones.

This 1959 film was Disney's first live-action comedy; it isn't good, but it's certainly mythic.
