Gosh I hope they took off his collar before he grew.

Also, I would never climb into a dog's mouth. PEEEEE-YEWWWWW!

You'd think that a giant dog who vores children would be popular all over the internet, but strangely, I can locate no fansites, fanart, fanfics, or porn of this. Have any of you heard of this movie before? Was it well known back in the 70s, or was it an obscure release?

Also, forget Digby, I want to know more about Clarissa.

Saw it as a first grader during the Carter admin. It was no Cat from Outer Space or Pete's Dragon, but we still felt the malaise.

I don't remember seeing it but I instantly recognized the theme song so maybe I did see part of it someplace when I was little.

WOAH I remember this. This was buried. Totally forgotten.

yeah this brings back all sorts of fuzzy memories. I think my parents rented it for me thinking it was a Shaggy Dog movie; as far as I knew if the Shaggy Dog could be a detective, the Shaggy Dog could also grow in size. I don't think I remember Clarissa at all though.

I kinda want to track down this movie, but I'm pretty sure this is the whole movie. Boy gets dog. Dog grows. Dog becomes famous as famous circus dog. Dog escapes. Dog is a hazard to the locomotive industry. Dog is hunted by mercenaries. Dog saves the day by stopping the rampaging Clarissa.

I skimmed the synopsis, and it looks like you're almost right: Clarissa starts rampaging AFTER Digby saves the day.

Digby: "The accumulated filth of all their experiments and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No."

This must be the same as what Everything is Terrible just put up.

Digby's kind of a favorite of mine, not top ten though I don't think. I saw it several times on weekend TV, and later found it was a popular matinee in England.

It's another that I recorded the audio of on cassette, and learned the lines from it. It has a lot of cool moments, Eldon eating Dog food, of course seeing Digby getting bigger is exciting, the psychological evaluation, where Eldon 'suffers from a transference syndrome, and he becomes the Dog'.

I like Dog transformation movies, and in a way it is about transforming, becoming larger. It's like an old fashioned monster movies in a lot of ways, and I dig those, like The Green Slime, or The Blob, but for the kid crowd.

Anyone looking for Digby, I don't know if it's on official sources, but torrent should have it. The official 'Boomer' version is the 'clean' one, the oldest one, at a place like kat.

Hi Baleen, well you guys are hitting on a lot of Dog stuff I know this week. You have repressed memories, what do you remember about it?

I wish that Here's Boomer would have gone on to make movies, like Benji did.. Ah, to dream.
