How We Determine Our Grades

Check out Disney’s other adaptations of this canine caper. In the 1959 film The Shaggy Dog, a teenager finds himself growing hairy after he casts a spell on himself with a mystical ring from the local museum. In the 1976 movie The Shaggy D.A., the ring resurfaces and causes mayhem during a hotly contested political campaign.
