Trivia

In producer Joseph Barbera's original story treatment, C.H.O.M.P.S. was originally going to be a Doberman Pinscher. Lou Arkoff, son of executive producer Samuel Z. Arkoff, suggested that the mechanical dog would instead be a non-threatening dog in the same mold as Benji (1974). Although Barbera liked the film, he felt that this change contributed to its weak box-office performance. See more »

Goofs

When C.H.O.M.P.S. rips the roof from the car that Ken Sharp is driving, it is clearly not the same car that Sharp was seen getting into just moments before. See more »

It's great
2 October 2000 | by jamesmcdoneSee all my reviews

This movie is a nice, cute family oriented film. If you don't like violence, this is the movie to watch. Only thing annoying about this movie is the tune (but it's a catchy tune) repeats whenever c.h.o.m.p.s. leaps in to action.
