Boy Meets Dog (film #1 on Disc #8 of 100 Cartoon Classics DVD Megapack (Treeline Films, 2004). Also, film #18 on Disc #1 of 150 Cartoon Classics DVD Megapack (Mill Creek Entertainment, 2005)). [Category: Hollywood]

This is one of the weirder Castle Films cartoons in which a boy with an abusive father brings home a puppy, which his mean dad promptly kicks out. He then slips on some roller skates, falls down the stairs, and knocks himself in the head, which, of course, causes him to have a weird dream about the error of his ways. The weirdest part of the dream is the big machine that turns him into a baby. The weirdness of this toon makes it one of the more fun of the Castle Films outings.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
