Plot[edit]

The peaceful dog-ruled planet K-9 finds itself under attack by the evil Pit Bully empire. In a last-ditch effort to save his world, Dr. Kibble fast tracks the Wonder Dog project, an experiment to create a superpowered dog. Running out of time, he tests the serum on his newborn son and sends him to Earth with a special outfit called the Wonder Suit. His son crash lands on the planet and immediately befriends a boy. However, the two are separated as the boy's father won't let him keep the dog. The dog then returns to the ship, dons the Wonder Suit and becomes Wonder Dog, who must reunite with his newfound friend and save the planet K-9 from the Pit Bully invasion.
