Rating: B+ -- This one lives up to the Disney charm, outshining the original, and not a single parent is killed in the process. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A lost classic from a simpler time.
Apr 24, 2003
Rating: 3/4 -- It not only marked the return of Fred MacMurray to comedy -- in which he got his start in the 1930s--but it also convinced the Disney folks that the combination of situation comedy and fantasy was an idea worth pursuing. Full Review

There are a good many laughs on this simple premise and the script's exploitation of them. Full Review

Although played very broadly for what the industry calls bellylaffs, it adds up to an enjoyable family show. Full Review

Product Description:

Filled 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.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment:

The Shaggy Dog (1959)
Wilby Daniels (Tommy Kirk) is just an ordinary teenager until a magical ring accidentally transforms him into a lumbering sheepdog ... whose owner is the leader of a plot to destroy the Space Program! This hilarious madcap adventure was the first live-action comedy Walt Disney produced, with a story full of slapstick chases, sight gags, hot rods, spies, and spells! Fred MacMurray helms an all-star cast including Jean Hagen, Tim Considine, Kevin Corcoran, and Annette Funicello in her big-screen debut. It's timeless, thoroughly entertaining fun for every two- (and four-) footed member of your family!
