I could truly identify with Pardon My Pups since when I was a kid I had a fear of dogs that Junior Coghlan had. Of course I'm not the type that would have wanted a motorcycle.
But that poor frightened animal who was about to have pups gets to you every time. There is no way you can make a bad movie about kids and dogs.
Shirley Temple is in this one as well and it's not her short subject per se. But with her cuteness there was no doubt the young lady was definitely going places. Shortly she would be the biggest shining box office star and in Fox's firmament.
That last sight gag here is a pip. Shirley's still loyal legion of fans will love Pardon My Pups.
