The Shaggy Dog/The Shaggy D.A.

The Shaggy Dog: The son of dog-hating former mailman Wilson Daniels (Fred MacMurray), young Wilby (Tommy Kirk) accidentally becomes a canine himself when he stumbles upon an ancient curse. Inadvertently invoking a magical spell engraved on a centuries-old ring, Wilby begins turning into a sheepdog at unpredictable times, only to later return to human form. As if this wasn't enough for Wilby, he overhears a plot to steal secret government information while in dog form, leading to unexpected adventure. The Shaggy D.A.: When successful lawyer Wilby Daniels (Dean Jones) returns from vacation to find his home has been burglarized, he decides to clean up the town by running against the corrupt John Slade (Keenan Wynn) in the upcoming district attorney election. However, just as Wilby begins his campaign, he learns that a ring has been stolen from a museum that has the power to turn him temporarily into a sheepdog. Knowing he could transform at any moment, Wilby attempts to win the election.
