Dog Movie

The L.A. Times says:

... DreamWorks Animation ... plans to put Lassie [the collie] back in the public eye, along with Mr. Peabody and Sherman, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and other decades-old characters ...

I get Rocky, Bullwinkle and the rest. They're cartoon characters. I even understand Scooby Doo. But a live-action collie dog? That a bunch of five-year-old kids (including me) used to watch on their parents' black-and-white Philcos?

Okay, so maybe it could work. If a panda practicing martial arts can score a global knockout, why not a collie?

Go to, and see other properties that DW recently acquired, that also me be coming to a big screen near you.

Great headline, Steve. Even though the article clearly states that there is NOT a movie in development based on Lassie. Or a tv show.

The implication is there. I don't know of any development. Lassie is just one of the properties in DWA's recent acquisition.
