Murphy ("Just Jesse the Jack") is a mega-famous canine TV star who is fed up with being treated like a 'cashmachine' by Hollywood executives. He escapes and a group of loving kids save him.
Director Jim Wynorski, who built his career cranking out low budget R- and unrated horror and exploitation films, said he stopped making slasher horror films and switched to family movies like this because "horror has tanked in the market. All the newbies are still making haunted house movies; you know the kind: 10 kids trapped in a spooky old mansion somewhere. They aren't aware that that ship has already sailed. Walmart has a dumpster in their video section where you can buy 10 recent terror flicks on dvd for five bucks. Let them end up there while I cry all the way to the bank with Doggone films."
