FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Daisy Okas Date: December 20, 2007 Phone: 212-696-8343 -AKC Provides Educational Insert In DVD of Disney’s “Underdog” -
New York, NY- After the successful collaboration between the AmericanKennel Club(r) and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on Air Buddies, The Shaggy Dog and Eight Below DVDs, they have again joined forces to underscore the importance of making educated decisions when buying a dog via an educational insert about Beagles in Disney’s December 18th DVD release of the comedy adventure movie, Underdog.
The AKC(r) joins the National Beagle Club, the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club and the American Rottweiler Club in sending the message that potential puppy owners should carefully research a breed when buying a dog and should buy only from a reputable source.
“We are grateful to Walt Disney Home Entertainment for again helping the AKC stress that all potential puppy owners need to learn as much as possible about all of the different breeds before selecting the dog that will best fit into their family,” said Lisa Peterson, AKC spokesperson.
Inspired by the original hit animated TV series, Underdog is a live version of the classic animated television series. The story features Shoeshine, an unassuming beagle who flunks out of K-9 training and falls into the clutches of the unscrupulous Dr. Simon Barsinister. Through a secret experiment gone awry, Shoeshine acquires incredible superpowers, including the ability to fly and speak. Shoeshine uses his new superhero powers to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capital City as well as his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sweetheart Polly Purebred. The underworld boss Riff Raff is portrayed by three Rottweilers who went straight from city shelters to major movie roles.
The home entertainment release of Underdog is bound to be a hit with families and dog lovers alike, coupling hilarious high-flying canine fun with bonus features such as deleted scenes, bloopers, a behind-the-scenes “Diary of a Dog Actor” featurette, and more.
