Funnier when I was 14
22 August 2007 | by aprshep-1See all my reviews

I just discovered this cartoon again on You Tube (the Amazing Stories 1/2 hour version). I remember laughing so hard at this when I was 14 years old. I went to school the next day and discussed it with my friend who had watched it...we got in trouble in library for being too loud. We couldn't stop laughing about the "blaming it on the dog" part. Back then, fart jokes on TV were hard to come by...so this cartoon was a huge hit. I have always remembered The Family Dog as being one of the funniest cartoons I have ever seen. I searched for it again and amazingly found it! It did get some smiles out of me still, especially the Dad's flared nostrils and blaming it on the dog...about 20 some years later...still pretty funny, but not nearly as much. Maybe I'm jaded now with all the fart humor so readily available :) I think anyone (especially dog owners) can appreciate this cartoon. It was definitely ahead of it's time!
