Details on home video releases of The Shaggy D.A....

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.
