Trivia

In producer Joseph Barbera's original story treatment, C.H.O.M.P.S. was originally going to be a Doberman Pinscher. Lou Arkoff, son of executive producer Samuel Z. Arkoff, suggested that the mechanical dog would instead be a non-threatening dog in the same mold as Benji (1974). Although Barbera liked the film, he felt that this change contributed to its weak box-office performance. See more »

Benji, but with a beat
30 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

For a scientifically-engineered super-dog that was supposed to be the answer to petit crime, CHOMPS was a chump.

All I ever saw Chomps do was sit, or walk, or run. Or run, then walk, then sit... and then get back up again and stretch, and then walk, and then jog to K-Tel dance hits. And sometimes it had all the answers to the daily Jumbo. But mostly it just sat a lot.

All I am saying is: In a Celebrity Death Match, Chomps couldn't take out Mr. Bigglesworth.
