Walt Disney, who knows his way with a dog as well as a family, has turned out a rollicking piece of business in this comedy about a Great Dane which thinks he’s a dachshund.

Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette are the two principals, a young married couple faced with the fancy cut-ups of four Dachs and a Dane raised with the low-slung pups. The Fritzels are hers, the Dane his, and actually the Albert Aley screenplay builds to trying to sell the Dane – named Brutus – that he actually is a Dane.

Action is light and airy as the couple go their own way with their respective pets, Suzanne insisting that Dean rid himself of the clumsy big-foot while her spouse stoutly maintains that his Dane has a rightful place in the household.
