BURBANK, Calif., May 5, 2006 – Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents The Shaggy Dog, the fresh,
funny update of one of Disney’s most beloved family comedy classics, on DVD August 1st. Starring the everpopular Tim Allen (“The Santa Clause,” TV’s “Home Improvement”), The Shaggy Dog follows the hysterically
hairy adventures of Deputy D.A. Dave Douglas (Allen), a workaholic trial lawyer and sometimes distant dad,
who by a strange accident turns into a big shaggy dog. The fur flies as Dave comically tries to adjust to a
whole new way of looking at the world, and discovers how much a family really means to him.
The “Bark Along Bone-Us Feature” is a Disney first: some for the family dog to enjoy as well as the family.
This special feature combines fun dog-themed footage with two audio track options: for the canines in the
family to enjoy, there is a “barking and woofing” audio track, and for the humans in the family, an alternate audio track that features a new version of the song “Woof There It Is” with new lyrics created especially for The Shaggy Dog.
Bonus features also include: deleted scenes; bloopers and outtake goof-ups from the set; and
director/producer feature audio commentary.
The Shaggy Dog features a doggone great cast with Tim Allen, Kristin Davis (TV’s “Sex In The City”), Zena
Grey (“In Good Company”), Spencer Breslin (“Raising Helen”), Robert Downey Jr. (“Good Night And Good
Luck”), and Coal, the film’s adorable Bearded Collie.
The Shaggy Dog will be available for $29.99 (SRP). Fullscreen and widescreen versions are included on the
same DVD disc.
Tim Allen gains a whole new point of view on becoming a great dad when he’s accidentally transformed into a
great big dog in The Shaggy Dog, the deliriously funny update of the Disney family comedy classic.
Workaholic D.A. Dave Douglas (Allen) takes on his latest legal case, involving a criminal animal laboratory. It’s yet another assignment that takes him away from his wife (Kristin Davis) and kids (Zena Grey and Spencer Davis), who yearn for his attention.
The adventure begins when Dave morphs into the body of the family’s new pet Bearded Collie, and becomes
‘the shaggy dog.’ With perked-up ears and a front row seat on the family carpet, Dave is able to gain an
entirely different perspective into his family’s secrets and dreams. Inspired by what he discovers, Dave wants nothing more than to become man’s – and his family’s – best friend.
Screenplay by The Wibberleys and Geoff Rodkey and Jack Amiel & Michael Begler. Produced by David
Hoberman and Tim Allen. Directed by Brian Robbins.
