News About "The Shaggy D.A."
Cast and Crew
The Shaggy D.A. is directed by and stars Dean Jones, Suzanne Pleshette, Tim Conway, Shane Sinutko.
The most recent home video release of The Shaggy D.A. movie is March 9, 2006. Here are some details…
Have you ever wondered how Wilby Daniels (Dean Jones) was transformed from a man into a mutt? You’ll learn all the tricks from a Hollywood make-up artist in the bonus featurette Putting on the Dog. Other bonus tidbits on this DVD are an interview with The Good, the Bad and the Funny (a.k.a. Jo Anne Worley, Dick Van Patten and Tim Conway) and an audio commentary by these same stars. While prattling about their experiences on the set of The Shaggy D.A., Worley is reminiscent and often mentions her involvement with animal-rights charities, Van Patten takes a somewhat serious and analytical approach, and Conway shares his sarcastic humor. (The comedian’s comments will likely crack-up parents, but young viewers may miss the jokes because of his deadpan delivery.) One thing’s for sure though, after getting a whiff behind the scenes of the film’s famous pie fight (which required wearing whipped cream and cherries for four very hot and sticky summer days) there are some aspects of an acting career that really stink.

Disney studios liked to cast the same stars in many of their films. Look for Dean Jones in The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, Tim Conway in The Apple Dumpling Gang, and Keenan Wynn in The Absent-minded Professor.
