"The youngest pound puppy, Whopper, has grown up and turns out to be just like Cooler. He's telling two little puppies about the Bone of Scone, this giant, magic bone that allows humans to communicate with dogs. Back when Cooler was still in charge, this ugly guy whose last name was McNasty planned on stealing it. He adopted a pack of baby pitbulls, and used this machine to make them big and evil. Well, Whopper and his sister Bright Eyes ound out and told Cooler, and he and the rest of the pound puppies went off in search of Big Paw, who sings this cute song about how he loves you, and he's just a lonely little puppy too, even though he's about 15 feet tall. Then, this one dog, Coolette, has been kidnapped, and Whopper and Bright Eyes have to watch her newborn puppies. So when all the dogs except Cooler, Sammy, Hair Ball, (Pound Purries) and the puppies have been turned evil, Coolette's about to attack the babies when they say, "Mommy, we love you." Coolette turns back to normal, and Cooler figures it out. Reflex, this one dog who's trained to say "I love you" whenever he hears a bell, is cured of the evil by Cooler, who has him ring the bell and Reflex cures everyone. Then, at the end, there's a Sock Hop at the pound. At the very end, with grown up Whopper, the two puppies don't believe him because he used to tell stories, hence his name. Then a HUGE black dog comes out, and the two puppies whisper, "Big Paw.""
Great to finally have this on DVD!

"I was extremely excited when I saw this had come out on DVD. I've been a Pound Puppies fan since I was little, and to have at least of piece of that on DVD is very cool. The story's fun, and as a kid (and even now) the characters are lively and enjoyable.
There wasn't anything amazing about the DVD, but one of the features I liked (that isn't present on all DVDs) was the direct play. No pesky button pushing. They haven't done anything fancy with the animation but, being as it was released in 1988, the quality isn't bad anyway. It's as I remember it, and it's fun to hear the voices again and reconnect with the characters.
A great movie for fans, young and old, as well as those who haven't seen it yet!"
What an experience ?!!!!

"I would like to give it 3 and a half stars actually,,,,,,the reason being that I directed it almost 20 years ago,,,,it was a great challenge after completing the supervising of the series 'Spiral Zone' ( 65 episodes .
We did the pre-production in 2 months and a half and the actual production in 3 months,,,,,so a feature film made in 5 months and a half instead of the usual 3 years the Disney studio takes,so I believed then that as a director all doors in Hollywood would be open to me,,,,,stupid was I..............Nothing did happen,I never got a thank you from the executive producer or the Bonus money I was promissed.
But it was fun all the way,working an average 16 hours a day seven days a week,timing exposure sheets,checking layouts,animation,BG's,and we never made pencil testing exept for about 10 scenes of dancing at the pound;I had to flip drawings,even cells that had inbetweening mistakes to judge the animation.
The storyboard was completed in 6 weeks of wich I made more then a quarter of it,I don't know how I found all the energy to work like that,,,I guess I was young and full of passion for animation.
I did keep all my Artwork all these years and as bad as the film may be,considering the conditions and time we had to make it,.,,,I am proud of it no matter what.It was an extreme challenge that gave me experience and confidence,perhaps one day I may make a feature film in 3 years instead of 5 months and a half.
Thank you. Pierre De Celles"
I love the 50's rock and roll!

"i remember back in 96' when i was only like 3, my aunt recorded it. my mom says id get her to watch it with me all the time. she says i used to dance to the songs. wel, the music is of a good quality. and the story is pretty good. however, the animation looks cheap and not very good. but still, i recomend this movie to you if you have kids."
