Dog Tales

Dog Tales is a 1958 Warner Bros. animated cartoon. It reuses animation from Chuck Jones' Often an Orphan (1948) and Friz Freleng's Foxy by Proxy (1952) & Piker's Peak (1957). This animated film features the voices of Mel Blanc, Robert C. Bruce and Julie Bennett, and was directed by Robert McKimson and written by Tedd Pierce. It was released in theaters on July 26, 1958.


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".
