New Zealand's only animated, feature length film. Not just based
upon Murray Ball's highly popular comic strip, but directed by
him. For those familiar with the character, this film should
entertain with new material. For those unfamiliar, it is a
wonderfully animated introduction to Dog, Wal, and all the
characters that inhabit their world. "Will Wal become an All
Black? Will Cooch recover his stolen Stag? Will Dog win your
hearts and funnybones?" Make sure you see this one.
