Amazing early Australian Shepherds
K. Glaes | Reading PA | 04/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was a sweet old early TV show--and funny in parts because of the endearing Slim Pickens. I loved seeing these early Australian Shepherds. Two of my Aussies go back to Sisler's Shorty, who appears in the film. Aussie lovers everywhere need a copy of this to appreciate where the breed came from and how they do the job they were bred for."
Priceless if you care about history of the Aussie

"At this writing (2009) the Australian Shepherd has only has a registry for a little over 60 years. The dogs in this cute little Disney story were the foundation of this breed, really were Jay's dogs, it really was his rodeo act and his ranch in Idaho. There is nothing on earth like this showing this part of this breed of dog's heritage. We have faded photographs and yellowed writings, but nothing close to this. A treasure."
Great fun for Dog lovers, especially Australian Shepherds

"THE STORY: The story of a ranching family that lives in the Californian Santa Inez Valley along with their 3 Australian Shepherd herding dogs -- Stub, Queen and Shorty. A renegade wild 1800 pound Brahma bull threatens the ranchers cattle herds and Stub is the best chance they have in corralling the beast.

BEHIND THE SCENES: A made for television one hour show, it first aired on December 8, 1974 as the 10th episode of the season of the "Wonderful World of Disney", on NBC television. The story is perfectly narrated by Rex Allen. Produced and directed by Larry Lansburgh, who also created the original story, and the actual teleplay was put together by Jan Lansburgh and Bill Anderson. The story is actually a continuation of another Larry Landsburgh directed project for Disney, the Academy Award ® nominated 22 minute Disney theatrical featurette titled "Cow Dog", released 18 years earlier on November 6, 1956 along with the Disney film, "Secrets of Life". That first story also featured a dog named Stub, and the new show is supposed to be about features Stub's descendants. Too bad this original project is not included on the DVD as an extra. All in all entertaining and clean family fun.
