Errors in Production and Release Dates[edit]

How can this film have been released in 1994 when I have a VHS from 89'? Plus, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096787/ accurately has it listed as being released in 89'. It was released on November 17, 1989. Can someone do a date correction for me. I have no idea where these people are getting their information. This is very strange. We need a complete rewrite and data correction here. Here is a complete list of release dates: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096787/releaseinfo. I don't know if the box office returns are good or not. How on Earth did they get a release date of 1994?--Dragoon91786 (talk) 06:24, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Based on a Book?[edit]

Was this film based on the Beth Brown novel All Dogs Go to Heaven? Is it something that should be addressed in the article?

According to Cawley,[1] Bluth was inspired by the title after the book was read to his class in fourth grade, but the film's story is not based on the book. ~Matticus TC 09:53, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Script[edit]

Let's put back the script section. The article looks very unprofessional without it. -- Agent_Koopa 00:39, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Beer[edit]

This is in response to Foofy's comment (I forgot how to do the reply thing). I specifically remember Dom DeLuise warning children about smoking, since Carface smokes cigars throughout the whole movie. 75.40.39.72 04:32, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I haven't seen this movie since I was a little kid, but I remember that the dogs drank beer at some point in the movie. At the end of the home video version there was a segment with Dom DeLuise (I think) warning children about the dangers of alchohol. Maybe I'm insane, but does anybody else remember this? Can't find anything on Google, which isn't surprising considering how poorly this movie did. --Foofy 04:46, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, i watched the film again today (i've seen it about four times before), anyway i watched it until the end of the film, when all the labels and distributers were displayed, and I did not see any warning at the end, may be it was a special version, did you watch it in the cinema?

Dog breeds[edit]

Noting here for future reference that a number of IP editors have attempted to change the breed of some of the characters (Pit Bull to Bulldog, Dachshund to Basset Hound). The press material and cited sources all give the dog breeds as they are in the article, and while one could argue they may look more like one breed than another, this is after all a cartoon (nobody argues Snoopy is not a cartoon beagle because he doesn't look like a real one!), and unless there are reliable sources to confirm otherwise, the dog breeds should remain the same as in the reference material. ~Matticus UC 16:48, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Wallet Family[edit]

The article continuously refers to Harold and Kate as the "Wallet" family. At one point, one of the dogs calls them the 'Warlop family' and while it sounds like she may be saying Wallet, another character later says 'Warlop family' more clearly. Further, the credits list them as 'Harold Warlop' and 'Kate Warlop'. --user.lain (talk) 09:12, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

This is an internet meme?[edit]

...really? 74.32.237.31 (talk) 14:59, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

No. I removed the category. Erik (talk | contribs | wt:film) 19:25, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
BAAAAH! Sorry. It sort of is. (insert your own jeopardy reference here) It coined the phrase "Big Lipped Alligator Moment", which usually explains an over-the-top scene which has little to no bearing to the plot whatsoever, comes right out of nowhere, and is never mentioned again. The scene also breaks the rules of the movie, where animals are only able to understand their own species, and allows an Alligator and a dog sing a duet. Looking back on this, this is more of a trope than an internet meme. VmKid (talk) 01:48, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, well all we have is your unsupported word that this is true. It's unsourced and I'm removing this as an internet meme. SuperAtheist (talk) 18:03, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
I can't say I have a source for it either, but "Big Lipped Alligator Moment" really is a popular phrase and owes its existence to this film. iNcHicORe (talk) 1:11, 8 May 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.53.96.181 (talk)

Changed the plot[edit]

I made a change addressing the fact that Charlie was going to hell after dying a second time. Somehow he managed to get over to Anne-Marie's new house (probably due to being a good confidence man (dog?) in life and everyone knows the best con-men can trick even the devil) and truly lament over his actions but the whole time New Orleans is flooded in red and an infernal voice beckons. It is when he laments that the evil is banished and he is told he gets to go to Heaven for finally proving himself. Anyway, I think this is somewhat important plot wise even though it may seem a bit OCD to point out because it ties together him finally confronting his own feelings and taking one last stand against death (escaping, at least for a time, the grasp of hell).--74.108.167.240 (talk) 02:13, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
