Storyline

Leonard is a 4th grader; his mother, Mrs. Mary Lou Helperman, is his teacher, and has been nominated for a teaching award. They plan a trip to Florida for the finals, but need to leave their dog, Spot, behind. Unknown to Mrs. Helperman, Spot has been masquerading as a boy, Scott, who is her star pupil. Spot wants nothing more than to be a real boy, and sees a way to this when mad scientist Ivan Krank appears on the Barry Anger show. Krank thinks he can turn animals into humans. Conveniently, his lab is right down the street from where the Helpermans are staying, so Spot, as Scott (and the rest of his family) convinces Mary Lou to take him along. Spot becomes a man, but discovers it's not everything he ever dreamed of after all. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Funny, smart and more adult-oriented.

The person who wrote the review that this wasn't up to Disney standards must be an elementary school student. The truth is that this movie ranks up there with Emperor's New Groove and Lilo & Stitch as the best non-Pixar Disney movie since Lion King.

The animation is top quality based on the drawings of that guy--whose name escapes me at the moment--responsible for the drawings on the Cranium games, among other things. The songs, especially the opening number Want to be a Boy, are better than anything since Little Mermaid.

The writing is far above the heads of many kids, directed just as much at adults as children. Even a quick animated view of a woman losing her clothes and standing in her underwear is included to show that this isn't just for the young set. Don't believe the ratings. This is a great cartoon that deserves a sequel. And while we're at it, how about putting the TV show on Disney Channel instead of Toon Disney so more people can enjoy it.
