view all

When young Wilby Daniels utters some magical words from the inscription of an ancient ring he turns into a shaggy dog, causing havoc for family and neighbors. Disney slapstick is on target at times, though it drags in places. Followed by "The Shaggy D.A." and "Return of the Shaggy Dog."

The Shaggy Dog
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

This movie had some great special effects considering the time in which it was made. This was a very entertaining comedy...thank God for the Walt Disney Studios. They gave us many wonderful and wholesome movies for the whole family...and still do! I remember meeting the "Shaggy Dog" at my grade school when I was a little boy...I still remember.
