Product Description

Walt Disney Studios feature-length version of the cartoon character created by Gary Baseman. Spot the dog (voiced by Nathan Lane) wants to become a real-life boy, just like his master Leonard (Shaun Flemming). When Leonard moves with his mother to Florida, Spot meets Dr. Krank (Kelsey Grammer), an evil scientist who helps turn Spot into a human being. Except something goes wrong and Spot turns into an old man.


A high-energy and wildly comic reinterpretation of Pinocchio, Teacher's Pet: The Movie follows Spot (voiced by Nathan Lane), a dog who desperately wants to be a boy, much to the chagrin of his owner Leonard (Shaun Fleming), who just wants to play with his dog. Disguised as his human alter ego Scott, Spot heads down to Florida in the hopes of being transformed by a mad scientist (Kelsey Grammer)--but the transformation proves to be more complicated than Spot expects. Teacher's Pet almost looks like it was drawn in crayon--the unusual and dynamic visual style sets it apart from most Disney cartoons, and the witty dialogue and songs--voiced with zip and aplomb--make the movie hugely entertaining for kids and parents. Also featuring the voices of Jerry Stiller, Paul Reubens, Megan Mullaly, David Ogden Stiers, and Wallace Shawn. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Teacher's Pet is a movie that arose from the animated TV series of the same name. Having never seen the series, I was a little wary about watching something which may have seemed disconnected. Nevertheless, to my pleasant surprise, I found there was no need to have seen the series to enjoy this movie. As a side note for those who HAVE seen the movie, however, I'm pretty certain it was created as a way to tie up all the loose ends the series left behind.

The first thing one will notice when they start watching is the unusual (sometimes bordering on disturbing) character designs based on the art style of Gary Baseman. For the most part, these lend great personality and humour to the already vibrant characters and witty dialogue of the story. Nathan Lane makes a great choice for the part of Spot/Scott and all the other voice actors are equally well-matched and show off their talents brilliantly.

There are plenty of songs (just to warn some of you) but I found them all more endearing and likable than annoying, for a change. The soundtrack is an enthusiastic blend of jazz, latino and orchestrated work that reminded me a lot of the music to the Emperor's New Groove.

Also the movie teaches some valuable lessons without shoving them in your face (too much) - mostly the lesson of friendship, taking consideration for others wishes and not messing with nature. There are some quite emotional scenes to counterbalance the comedy. All in all, just the right blend to take the morals seriously and still enjoy the fun in the rest of the story.

Thoroughly recommended for kids and adults alike! And possibly even dogs.
