The bulldog Liberty (who's thoughts we're able to hear) is the "First Dog of the USA", i.e. the president's dog. As such he has a lot of representative duties, but also many privileges which made him snobby and condescending towards other dogs. But one day when the young Nataniel takes him for a walk, he's mixed up with the stray dog Moocher who looks like his identical twin. Henceforth Moocher takes Liberty's place in the White House. From now on a different spirit reigns in the White House... Written by Tom Zoerner <>

An American Embarrassment
8 October 2000 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This one was just a total crash from start to finish. Disney must not be trying anymore. This dog Liberty is the exact opposite of what our forefathers fought for over 200 years ago. The dog expects to be treated like royalty. Our great nation has been free from royal rule for 224 years thank you very much! Why doesn't Disney just have Liberty piddle on the Bill of Rights & call it entertainment? It would have fit in with the characters & plot.
