Movie Info

The son of dog-hating former mailman Wilson Daniels (Fred MacMurray), young Wilby (Tommy Kirk) accidentally becomes a canine himself when he stumbles upon an ancient curse. Inadvertently invoking a magical spell engraved on a centuries-old ring, Wilby begins turning into a sheepdog at unpredictable times, only to later return to human form. As if this wasn't enough for Wilby, he overhears a plot to steal secret government information while in dog form, leading to unexpected adventure.

Audience Reviews for The Shaggy Dog

  • May 14, 2011
    It's a fun, and witty children's film. But it can't even pull off the simplest of dialogue, or the funniest of comedy. Even in the simpler time when it was produced. It's a lost classic, that Walt Disney would roll in his grave for.

    Fun while it lasts...but quite cheesy as well.

    Really odd, but it's harmless and fun. It's kind've funny in the sense that its just a bizarre plot, no one in there right mind would write something about a man turning into a dog. Then there's the car that runs on grass and a dog driving it, completely worth the movie.
