This week’s family movie suggestion is The Prince and the Pooch…
Wishbone, the dog, again debuts in this 30-minute movie based on the book The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain. Children, especially, will enjoy this short production highlighting the importance of contentment.
Wishbone stars as both the prince and the pooch. Neither are happy with their lives, so when there is a chance to switch places, “both” dogs eagerly jump at the chance. However, the dogs realize that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. The story also involves Joe, one of the teenaged residents in Oakdale, who is thrown into the role of coach for a little girls’ t-ball team. The job isn’t as easy as it looks and Joe’s coaching position is met with some laughs, as the girls attempt to successfully learn the game.
This is yet another short Wishbone movie, which like the others we have watched, always includes a great lesson and is short enough to watch after the homework is finished and before dinner is served. A great show for all ages!
