Boomer The Dog
It's Dog movies and TV for me, trying to acquire titles I'd only heard about or had seen on TV as a younger pup and the vaguest memories of, no names, just remembering a scene or two like it was a dream.
Some of my best finds had been in the VHS era and post VHS, in cheap supermarket tapes and in thrift stores, where I got stuff like Chomps and Toby Terrier official tapes. Distributors seemed to be putting out anything they could find and license, so many of the after school movie specials were put out.
I got Dog Trouble, where a kid gets turned into a Border Collie to learn a valuable life lesson.
Bit Torrent came out right around the time we first got high speed, and I was on it every single night getting this stuff, not that there was even a lot on BT ten years ago, but oh boy, Demonoid was the best open BT site for obscurities and B-movies over popular stuff, and I loved it!
Current swap list - needed:
Dog's Best Friend, a Family Channel produced movie with a talking Labrador, seemingly Babe-themed, talking animals and a farm, 1999? Never saw it, just the ad for it.
Gaines Burgers TV ad featuring Murray The Pointer, as a live action brown and white Pointer Dog costume with face paint and cartoony voice, talking about how great the Burgers are, and to feed them to your Dog, 1986. I think I saw nearly the whole thing once, then a half of it, and never again. There's also a version with a female Dog like Murray, but she's more furry, and I saw that one for 5 seconds one time.
McGurk, A Dog's Life, 1979 TV show pilot, Norman Lear's idea for a sitcom featuring the whole cast as Dogs. Has been described by a friend as '... cocaine'. I've seen a bit of the promo posted here, and have had the promotional picture from the TV magazine since then.
Other non-Canine ones that it took years to see were The Rutles movie, All You Need Is Cash, and the Negativland movie with the parakeet feathers and 'David, Fetch my cigarettes' on it. I have both of those now.
Here's Boomer, 1980-'82 official English releases. At least I have two of these, recreated with German videos and my audio cassettes from TV put together.
