Dachshunds in Pop Culture: Walt Disney's 'The Ugly Dachshund'

Based off of a 1938 novel by G.B. Stern, this classic 1966 Walt Disney movie was directed by Norman Tokar and starred Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette. While it didn't win any awards, and lacks the punch of Disney's other classic dog-related movies such as the heart-wrenching drama 'Old Yeller,' this light-hearted timeless comedy continues to entertain kids of all ages. It does a great job of documenting 1960's suburban glamour; the house they live in is amazing. All in all, it's great fun, and if you don't have the movie in your collection, you should! Watch it again today, and enjoy some simple laughs and crazy dachshund hyjinx. It's probably the biggest production of a dachshund-related movie we'll ever see. Read a complete review at Ultimate Disney.

Enjoy this fun trailer:
