This is one of the best features to be showcased during the Wonderful World of Disney series during the 1980's. Many familiar faces from the 80's are cast to make this a fun time capsule of a movie. Veteran actors from 80's landmark films like Porky's and Back to the Future, as well as many young faces in the cast would move onto popular series such as the Wonder Years and Full House. The addition of legendary actor Mickey Rooney seals the deal in making Little Spies a Disney classic from the 80's. The opening scene grabs the young audience into a heartfelt story about a boy and his dog. The young cast is perfectly assembled to add to the story of youth and innocence. The boy's friends, little sister, first crush and neighborhood bullies are all present. The additions of the club house element with the neighborhood hermit who they say lives in a haunted house only adds to the stories innocence. The coming of age drama is complete with moments that include one's first fight and first kiss. As the group of friends work together to fight the odds, the story turns into a PG rated Rambo as the club house turn into a band of renegade military type posse to help rescue the dog. The movie has so much to offer any audience of young boys who loves their pet dog so much that they would go to war for them. Little Spies is a fun ride with many great moments.
