I happened to find this... thing... as a special feature on the DVD for The Broadway Melody. I had just watched Broadway Melody, and found myself immediately pulled into watching Dogway Melody. I was agog.

I have never seen anything like it, it was just bizarre! I just don't have the words, you really should see it for yourself. And you spend half the time watching for "how'd they do that?" For instance, at one point, there's a dog playing the cymbal; if you look, you can see that there's a big rubber band connecting the cymbals, so all they have to do is pull the dogs legs/cymbals apart, and then the rubber band pulls them back together. Still, it looked great. :) My only complaint, I thought it went on a little long for what was essentially a one-gag premise. But it was really well done. :)
