A masterpiece of modern canine sea tales...
18 December 2002 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

The Ballad of Hector, the Stowaway Dog is a true gem. It is a brilliant mix of canine hijinx, dastardly jewel thieves, and swashbuckling sea-faring. The story follows a heroic Airesdale terrier (named Hector) through a series of oceanic adventures. The dog unwittingly has a fortune in jewels around his neck, sewn right into his collar! It is a classic tale of good versus evil for the entire family. It, sadly, has been played very few times in the past few years due to lack of interest on behalf of the Disney Channel. I, honestly, would give my right arm to see this two part series again. Its catchy theme song has not left my mind since I viewed the film. "Who is Hector?" the song goes. "He's one heck of a seadog! Who is Hector? That salty stowaway pup!" The Sherman brothers (who did the music for Mary Poppins) magnificently show that they can undertake any task that the Disney company gives to them. The series is a fine piece of work from the mid-1960s and I hope one day to find a copy of this film on DVD or VHS. In conclusion, the Ballad of Hector, the Stowaway Dog is a worthwhile treat for all ages (and breeds) alike.
