The Shaggy Dog, released in theaters in 1959, was Disney Studios first live-action comedy. It was a departure from their popular animated films. The gambit paid off — it was a huge hit and it launched a slew of wholesome, funny, adventuresome movies from the studio.
These goofball comedies, light-hearted family fare and suspenseful mysteries became the cornerstone for Disney and raised a generation of young viewers. Make some popcorn, get a blanket and revisit these childhood classics, or introduce them to a new generation.
