Dog Tales

Dog Tales is a 1958 Looney Tunes short directed by Robert McKimson.


A series of blackout gags involving dogs are presented. A doberman pinscher viciously pinches an overweight U.S. Army private identified as "Doberman." Reference is made to (and a caricature of) the character played by Maurice Gosfield on The Phil Silvers Show. The narrator cannot make up his mind whether a dog pictured is a pointer or a setter, and then finally shows a picture of a "point-setter".


  • This cartoon reuses animation from Chuck Jones' "Often an Orphan" (1948) and Friz Freleng's "Foxy by Proxy" (1952) and "Piker's Peak" (1957).
  • The Great Dane, called Victor Barky, is a parody of Victor Borge.
  • Production Number: 1484
  • MPAA Number: 18696
  • Laddie resembles Robert/Roberta from the short, "Mixed Master".
