Cartoon Summary:


After being stranded by his last owner on a picnic, Charlie Dog tries to convince farmer Porky that he needs a dog that's 50% pointer, 50% boxer, 50% Irish setter, 50% watchdog, 50% Spitz, 50% Doberman Pinscher, but mostly he's all Labrador Retriever. Porky suffers the same fate over and over again: no matter where or how many times he tries to rid himself of Charlie, the canine always comes back.

Has this cartoon been removed? I can't seem to see it. It keeps saying no video was specified. Help! I love this cartoon and have searched all over to find it.

Absolutely hillarious from top to end, but a tie with "A Hound for Trouble" as the best Charlie cartoon entry. Especially if your Italian!

This is the best entry of the Charlie Dog series. The scene where he acts out the horrors of city-life is breathtaking. An Oscar-worthy performance by Charlie.
