The Dogfather (17 Cartoons) (DVD)
Directed by David H. DePatie and Friz Freleng and Hawley Pratt and Art Leonardi and Gerry Chiniquy
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
