When a casino owning dog named Charlie is murdered by his rival Carface, he finds himself in Heaven basically by default since all dogs go to heaven. However, since he wants to get back at his killer, he cons his way back to the living with the warning that doing that damns him to Hell. Once back, he teams with his old partner, Itchy to prep his retaliation. He also stumbles on to an orphan girl who can talk to the animals, thus allowing him to get the inside info on the races to ensure his wins to finance his plans. However, all the while, he is still haunted by nightmares on what's waiting for him on the other side unless he can prove that he is worthy of Heaven again. Written by

According to Don Bluth's book "The Art of Animation Drawing", during the first stages of making the film, Robert Towne came by Bluth's Dublin studio and decided to help them come up with the story of this movie after Bluth and his crew went through several weeks of being in deadlock. After he read what the crew came up with up to that point, he took a bathroom break, and then he gave them a simplified sum-up of what the story should be about. This would eventually become the final plot of the movie. See more »

The credits, featuring a choral symphony, are interrupted by Charlie, who complains that just because "we're all dead doesn't mean the music has to be." The heavenly whippet (Melba Moore, a gospel singer) agrees, and a rollicking gospel rendition begins. A scene featuring Carface and the heavenly whippet shows Carface stealing his own watch as Charlie did, with the whippet chasing him. Charlie appears, and coyly says, "He'll be back", and winks at the camera. See more »
A Cute and Touching Animated Film From The Great Director Don Bluth.
"All Dogs Go to Heaven" is a brillaint and cute animated film from the great director Don Bluth who directed the brillaint film "The Secret of Nimh". "All dogs Go to Heaven" is the one of cutest Metro-Goldwyn Mayer animated films. Don Bluth did a great job directing and I enjoyed the voices of Dom DeLueis and Burt Reynolds.
