Synopsis: WIth a bad home life, a dog tries the world, which is even worse.

Comments: Open on a down pan of a cityscape. Looks advanced for the time, really. Then the primitive round headed dogs. I wonder what the dog did to get exiled; it seems like trying to be at the bottom of the pile is just an excuse. Strange sound fade to and from the city sounds. Active camera work in the street crossing. The dog does try to take advantage of a guy in a cast... Horrible modern raspberry sound effect. Green faced cat again. Big drippy snot. This reminds me strangely of Crayon Shin Chan. Something about the design and the giant snot. It really feels like it's just going to end with life sucking for the dog. And then it starts to rain on him. Animating a rain water reflection of the dog. But bad rain effect. The moral is that even though your family hates you and kicks you in the face, eventually they'll be too tired to hit you so you should stay at home. Cool end title. The Columbia Pictures logo looks related to the Starbucks logo.
