Ding Dog Daddy (1942)

*** (out of 4)

A downright idiotic mutt falls in love with a female dog but he doesn't realize that she's nothing more than a steel model. Soon he keeps trying to sneak into the park to visit her but he runs into the guard dog who tries to keep him away.

DING DOG DADDY isn't a classic by any stretch of the imagination but there's no question that if you're a fan of animated movies then you should enjoy it. What makes the film so memorable is the dog itself because he's just so stupid that you can't help but laugh at his misadventure. There are some funny fights between him and the bulldog and the lightening strike scenes are also quite funny. The animation is nice as well so this one here is certainly enjoyable.
