Better than the original follow-up...
7 July 2001 | by (Arcata, CA) – See all my reviews

Not often does a made for TV movie surpass the original, but even rarely does one do so, while also shifting time and counter-acting as a prequel.

Return of the Shaggy Dog is a sequel to The Shaggy Dog, and takes place before The Shaggy D.A. The funny thing is, while The Shaggy D.A. took place in the 70's, this one takes place in the 80's. Originally offered as a two-partner on The Wonderful World of Disney, this movie has only been aired twice, as far as I know, and had Wilby Daniels engaged but before he can get married he ends up kidnapped by the professor's caretakers (who find the ring and read the inscription, hence Wilby's return as the shaggy dog). Also mixed in with the plot is Wilby's brother who is trying to find the perfect dog for a dog food commercial....hmmm.....predictable? Sure. Fun? Definitely!

Maybe with the new movie coming out with Tim Allen (ugh...) everyone will have a chance to see this movie. I've had it on tape for years and always find it entertaining.
