The song The Blue Danube Waltz is a reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both are used in sequences with spacecraft over Earth. See more »
Just before Mudbud goes onto the spacecraft, he rolls in a muddy puddle on the runway and gets mucky. When we see him inside the spacecraft a minute later, he is completely clean again. See more »
Dreams are like stars. You can't touch them, but if you follow them, they will lead you to your destiny. I used to dream of being the first dogronaut to walk on the moon. And now, I dream of going home to my boy, Sasha.

Well, it looks like there's a fair number of people who are defending this film and I am certainly not one of them. I don't like the argument that you should lower your standards just because it's something made for kids. While not a good movie, "The Adventures Of Elmo In Grouchland" did a far superior job of having more interesting characters, backgrounds and everything else. In fact, I might have just given this a 3 out of 10 if not for this one major factor: fart jokes. Yeah, I tried to avoid the first one but in one of the latter parts of the movie, they actually have the dogs fart because they need his methane gas.
I don't even think that was a joke. It was meant to be something serious. There's this one character who suddenly becomes a villain out of absolutely nowhere. The visuals are simply terrible. Whenever the pups are on the Moon, you can easily tell they're just ugly CGI models. The worst thing about the movie is probably the lip movement. We get these creepy lines coming from their mouths. Look at the "Babe" movies and see how they did it much better. I guess it didn't help I hadn't seen most of the other movies. This was a sequel or I guess a spin off of Air Bud. Disney stopped making direct to video animated sequels at this point but they still had some awful live-action ones left.
Why even put talking animals into the mix? The original "Air Bud" was mediocre at best and didn't need these constant followups. The characters in this are just not smart. There's a scene where a kid can literally just use this machine to put on a spacesuit. Why would anyone have a machine turned on during a tour that just immediately gives you one of those? Shouldn't they maintain their equipment better? It gets rather dumb when we see five dogs do it. Learn the first time. This movie features a cosmonaut who looks like one of the Geico caveman and boy, is he obnoxious. I think even people who liked the other ones didn't care for this. Even for this length, it went on too long. This is why I'm a "Gravity Falls" fan. *
