| A nice antidote to the heroism of Lassie!
This installment of Joe McDoakes shows Joe back fighting in WWII. His trusted dog, Dusty (a dead ringer for Lassie) is at his side. What Joe doesn't know is that the dog is a traitor and again and again he betrays Joe to the enemy. Later, after the war, Joe finds Dusty alone in the alley and takes his best friend home. From then on, Dusty is an awful pest--bringing home his drinking buddies as well as assisting burglars in stealing from the McDoakes family! The dog is dog-gone awful!

Considering how popular Lassie was in the 1940s and 50s, this show makes fun of this by making this Collie very smart...but incredibly evil. A nice bit of parody makes this a novel and enjoyable installment into the McDoakes films. One of the better ones in fact.
