Edward G. Robinson,
Higgins first gained prominence as the unnamed dog on the long-running television series "Petticoat Junction," and he also made crossover guest appearances as the same character on "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "Green Acres." This was his first project away from the Hooterville franchise, and would be followed by the cult classic Benji (1974). See more »
Mooch is a new dog in Hollywood and she's given some tips from narrator Zsa Zsa Gabor on how to make it in the city. This includes her running into a number of celebrities including Vincent Price, James Darren and Jill St. John.
MOOCH GOES TO Hollywood is a somewhat bizarre made-for-TV movie that clocks in at just 51-minutes and will mainly appeal to film buffs who will get a chance to see a number of familiar faces. Price, Darren and St. John get the most screen time as they actually interact with the dog but we also get cameos from Edward G. Robinson, Mickey Rooney, Marty Allen, Phyllis Diller, Cesar Romero and even Richard Burton.
If you're a fan of one of those stars then you might want to check this out. It's basically just a somewhat cute dog running around and bumping into some famous people. If you're looking for some hard-hitting drama or action then you certainly won't find it here but there's no question that the film has its charming moments. It's also a bit bizarre as I'm guessing this here was originally meant for children yet there are some jokes about the dark side of Hollywood including stripping as well as porno movies. But, then again, the 70s were a lot different than today.
