It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episodes 165 & 166 – The Return of the Shaggy Dog/Counterstrike (1990)

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we have a man who turns into a dog and Simon MacCorkindale and no it does not involve Manimal! 

First, Greg uses his Money in the Bank pick on this sequel to The Shaggy Dog, which aired on ABC in 1987 as part of The Disney Sunday Movie. In this sequel to the Disney classic we learn some things like can dogs wear pajamas? 

Then, usually we do not cover shows that ran as long as this one.  (Hello, Charles Stiles Mystery Diners.)  We could not avoid this show because of its two leads–the legendary Christopher Plummer and It Was a Thing on TV favorite Simon MacCorkindale.
