Storyline

While playing with a giant dog, Chipper is injured when the dog sneezes and it causes him to hit a wall. Against Steve's orders, Barry, along with Val, goes to the veterinarian's office where the dog is being kept. They then meet his young assistant who agrees to help save Chipper. Unfortunately, the vet's lazy son finds out and holds Barry and Val hostage. The young man also was responsible for the dog that Chipper was playing with to run away. Now Steve, Mark, Dan and Fitzhugh must not only save Barry and Val, but also find the giant dog, which was a valuable movie dog, before it is too late. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Two Boys Need A Dog
2 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Barry's dog is injured so Barry puts himself in a dangerous position by going to a giant Vet.

Generally speaking, I like Giants season one more than Giants season two. Season two is fine but it contained too many of these adventures where the "little people" feel the need to reveal themselves to the giants. When you get too much of this it ends up making the giants seem like less of a menace. And the giants being a menace is what season one was all about.

But having said all that, Every Boy Needs A Dog is fine, mainly because it features one of the most horrible giant characters and one of the best giant characters to appear in the whole 51 episodes of the series: and he is just a long haired boy.

Adding to this, the hour does a nice job of presenting the day in the life of a Vet's shop, and the trouble making kid gets what he deserves in the end. If this story were made today it probably would of ended with the kid walking the streets making trouble somewhere else. But this story ends on a nice positive note.

In regards to the episode title, it is actually TWO boys who need a dog: Barry and the trouble making giant boy.
