It is very common that volume one is either missing or in tatters. This is because the set is sequential by age, and the babies who drool over the nursery rhymes often destroy the book, while the 10 and 12 year olds who read volume 12 keep the books in much better shape. There is also a Watty Piper anthology with a similar title, but this book is basically an anthology of three other books: Favorite Poems of Childhood. Illustrated by Tasha Tudor. Mother Goose Rhymes.

Offering a reward to whoever finds the ring, Katrinka and her colleagues go into a mad dash to find it, eventually escalating into a large-scale pie fight.
The Hound of Florence (Bambi's Classic Animal Tales)
In the pandemonium, the ring once again finds itself in the hands of the local thugs who this time attempt to pass it off to an undercover police detective. Once again in the hands of the museum, the inscription is read aloud as a point of reference; in the middle of the police station, Wilby who had arrived to confirm the ring had been recovered finds himself turning into Elwood once again.
This time, Slade's agent puts two and two together when he overhears the museum's curator explaining the ring's reputed power and how his predecessor from the first film told him a story of a young man that turned into a sheepdog years ago. Slade is informed of this weakness in his rival, is dubious at first, and then invites Wilby to his office to test out the theory. He advises Wilby to withdraw his campaign. Wilby refuses and tells Slade that when he is elected, he will have him investigated regarding his criminal connections. Slade then reveals he has his ring.
With a reading of the inscription, Slade is thrilled to see Wilby Daniels turn into the shaggy dog right before his eyes and makes a call to the local pound. Wilby escapes hearing Slade repeat the inscription several times, which guarantees that the spell will not wear off, and he will be trapped in a dog's form for some time to come.
Slade ignores warnings that reciting the incantation too often could cause the spell to transfer to him and keeps reciting the incantation over and over. Wilby eventually disguises himself as a female roller-derby competitor to elude Slade, who as district attorney has the entire police force and animal control at his disposal. Eventually, Wilby is caught and taken to the local dog pound where he is able to understand the other dogs, who band together to help him escape. With the help of Brian and Tim who still thinks his dog Elwood can speak until Wilby tells him the truth about what really happened , Wilby gets evidence that John Slade is connected to organized crime.
Wilby and Tim trick Slade into showing up at Roshak's warehouse, and Wilby uses a tape recorder to collect information that confirms Slade's wrongdoings. With the help of his dog friends from the pound, he also manages to retrieve the ring from John Slade, who unfortunately has read the inscription aloud so many times that the curse has now passed onto him, causing him to transform into a bulldog.
Finally, Wilby gets elected district attorney, Slade is supposedly jailed although it is never actually revealed , and Tim gets engaged to Katrinka. Together, they adopt Wilby's dog friends from the pound. The Shaggy Dog had been at that point the most profitable film produced by Walt Disney Productions and heavily influenced the studio's live-action film production for the next two decades.
Using television actors on their summer hiatus who were familiar to audiences but did not necessarily have enough clout to receive over-the-title billing or a large fee from another major studio was one way these comedies were produced inexpensively; they also tended to use the same sets from the Disney backlot repeatedly. This allowed Walt Disney Productions a low-risk scenario for production; any of these films could easily make back their investment just from moderate matinee attendance in neighborhood theatres, and they could also be packaged on the successful Disney anthology television series The Wonderful World of Disney some of these films were expressly structured for this purpose.
Occasionally, Walt Disney Productions would find one of these inexpensive comedies would become a runaway success and place at or near the top of the box office for their respective release year The Absent-Minded Professor , The Love Bug. The Shaggy Dog also performed very strongly on a re-release. This is the last of 19 films Robert Stevenson directed at Disney that spanned nearly 20 years. His first was Johnny Tremain in He also directed a number of episodes for the series Disneyland. This is also Stevenson's final film. The first film that he directed was Happy Ever After , a German musical.
The mythology of the Borgia ring was changed from the first film, in which young Wilby read the inscription on the ring once and then was the victim of random transformations which could only be stopped if he performed a heroic deed. In this sequel, he simply turned into a dog whenever the ring's inscription was read aloud, and the spell would generally last from five to ten minutes.
In the television movie The Return of the Shaggy Dog , which takes place between the events of the original film and this sequel, the mythology changes once again: now, once the inscription is read, Wilby is trapped in dog form until it is read again. The remake with Tim Allen eschewed the situation and characters of the three initial films and also a television remake which returned the mythology of the original film and opted instead for a science fiction device of a man being bitten by a viral dog that infected him with a serum that affected his DNA.

Weiler of The New York Times wrote, "Naturally, the story line is incredible and convoluted enough to give an uninhibited cast plenty of opportunities to clown for, unfortunately, a minimum of real laughs Despite all the athletic goings-on, 'The Shaggy D. Don Tait actually has written a cute script that gives adults in the audience a few laughs while watching the inevitable and unending pratfalls designed for the kids. It has all the elements of smooth and sunny comedy thay Disney does best, and it marks a return to top studio craftsmanship after a few uneven pix of late.
The film has been seen as a light satire of American politics in the post- Watergate era, with politicians being depicted as tied to crime, and not being what they appear to be.
