Mr. Gibbs (Jim Backus) is the rival company president who covets the mechanical mutt. He sends double agent Ken Sharp (Larry Bishop) to do his bidding, and Ken in turn hires a pair of bumbling crooks (Red Buttons), (Chuck McCann) to steal the dog.

Cheesy slapstick comedy with a near-death dog scene.

...it seems fairly obvious that the film would have been more effective as a 22-minute cartoon...

I can't believe I sat through this movie from beginning to end & what amazes me even more is that I did it without falling asleep.Watching this movie was excruciatingly painful.If you want to torture yourself then I dare you to sit through the whole movie & not fall asleep.I guess this will be a shorter review then what I normally write because I'm running out of things to say about how bad I think this movie sucked but believe me, C.H.O.M.P.S SUCKED!!!

More enjoyable than you might think. Basically, it's a movie-length 70's-era Hanna-Barbera cartoon, complete with Hoyt Curtin musical score. Approach it that way, and you'll enjoy it a lot more.
