Synopsis: After Charlie breaks out of the pen, he has an unfortunate "accident" and ends up barking at Heaven's door. However, he insists on going back for a second try, even if it costs him his eternal soul.

Reaction: Fun and original. Not the best Don Bluth, but still a fun show.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • When the heavenly whippet looks in Charlie's records, his mother and father are named "Loni" and "Burt", and look like canine versions of Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds (who were together at the time.)
  • During the scene when Charlie is in heaven, where they keep all the clocks, one of them is a Mickey Mouse wristwatch. Director Don Bluth is a former Disney animator.
  • Judith Barsi's final film.
  • The illustration on the War and Peace book that Charlie "reads" to Anne-Marie has the caption "General Pomeroy is shot." This is a reference to lead animator John Pomeroy, who is also a military history buff.
  • Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise recorded their lines together, as did Vic Tayback and Charles Nelson Reilly.
  • During the scene where Charlie is almost shot by Carface, he and Anne-Marie pass by "Bluth's Bakery" - a reference to director Don Bluth.
  • On the soundtrack version of {Let Me Be Surprised}, Charlie is heard saying "Damn that Carface, I'll kill him." but the "damn" part is removed in the movie (though Charlie still mouths the word).
