Spoofing the 1972 blockbuster The Godfather (while paying homage to the classic gangster pictures of the 1930s and ’40s), DePatie-Freleng’s The Dogfather™ centers around a bumbling pack of canine mafiosi. Backed by his overgrown henchman Pug and the diminutive Louie (voice artist extraordinaire Daws Butler), the mumble-mouthed Dogfather (voiced by Bob Holt) unleashes his own breed of disorganized crime in a series of seventeen cartoons that were a conscious throwback to the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes films.

DVD Extras Include:

Two documentaries by Greg Ford and William Hohauser: "Chips Off the Old Blockbusters" and "Tales of Production (and Production Overload) - Featuring author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, cartoon director/producer John R. Dilworth, ink-and-paint specialist Barbara Donatello, composer Doug Goodwin, director/animator Art Leonardi, and layout artist Martin Strudler

Audio commentaries for selected films by author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, filmmaker Greg Ford, and cartoon writer William Hohauser
