Calling this mediocrity is a bit kind, but it was one of my childhood favorites
3 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually loved this movie when I was little. I had it on video and watched it all of the time. I noticed a lot of the technical goofs as I got older, but they didn't really ruin the movie for me. I enjoyed pretty much every moment, every character, every song, and every joke. I think it's because I saw the movie when I was very little and loved cats, dogs, and music enough for the movie to have a big impression on me. I've outgrown the movie now but there's still a heavy nostalgia cloud around it for me. All I can really say for others is this: Pound Puppies is corny and messy like many of the toy-based movies from the '80s, but little kids might like it. It can work as a time-waster for them, but it won't mean much of anything to people who are older.
