BEHIND THE SCENES & TRIVIA: Winston Hibler not only produced this film for Walt Disney but he narrated the story. Hibler narrated many of the True-Life Adventures. He also worked in the animation department, and produced some Disney live action projects including the movie "Perri". Screenplay by Catherine Turney, based on the book, "Hurry Home Candy", by Meindert de Jong. Directed by Walter Perkins. The show first aired on the Wonderful World of Color on NBC on January 13, 1963 as episode number 223, and this was the shows 9th season. Ther episode was popular enough to re-air on September 1 of that same year, August 17, '69, and one last time on June 6, 1976. It was not released to VHS and this DVD is the first release to the public in 30 years. It is in full screen, and that is the way it was originally filmed, being made for television. Likewise the sound is mono. Very fun, simply made on a tight budget, great family film about a family and their Corgi dog."

"It's been a long time since I watched this movie on TV. I do remember thinking that it followed the book very closely- "Hurry home Candy" by DeJong. This DVD will be a movie I treasure."
