Just saw this on Cracked:

On June 15, 1979, ABC aired a pilot for a TV series called A Dog's Life. Everything stupid you just assumed about the show from that title? That is all 100 percent accurate. In fact, if anything, your stupid assumptions would be tastefully understated compared to the reality: A Dog's Life was a sitcom where all the characters were dogs, as played by actors in cheap-looking dog costumes. You can watch the entire episode here, if you loved Cats but hate cats.

Shockingly, A Dog's Life was the brainchild of renowned Emmy Award-winning producer Norman Lear, whose previous work included All in the Family, Sanford and Son and The Jeffersons. And once he was done producing all of those thoughtful explorations of family and race, he got friggin' hammered and crapped out a sitcom that opened on four people in dog suits doing a musical number.

The protagonist in A Dog's Life was an old dog named McGurk, played by Barney Martin, and all the action took place in the backyard of his owner's home.

McGurk's love interest was the next-door neighbor's dog, Iris, the mother of a young pup named Camille, whom the producers decided to make "the slutty one."

That's right: A whole roomful of people sat down at some point in history and not only greenlit a sitcom about actors in shitty dog costumes, but they requested -- nay, demanded -- that one of them have prominently highlighted tits. It was immediately canceled, of course, because the world is not as bad a place as it seems sometimes.

But at other times, it totally is! Because A Dog's Life wasn't the only talking-dog-themed sitcom ever produced ...

this one i haven't heard of, but it makes you wonder why Norman Lear? he did some classic tv of course but apparently some utter shit shows as well. i can't remember does he even make shows anymore? or is he retired? if he is this sounds like the show to retire on cause it sounds like he ran out of ideas for a new show. i hope you didn't watch this back than Randy. if so what the hell were you thinking?

I would be interested in seeing the pilot, based on the title alone. One of my favorite movies of all time is the 1955 movie It's a Dog's Life.

It looks just about right for DVD-R-hell:

It just seems so....weird.....that Norman Lear would go from All in The Family and Maude to....well....a sitcom about talking dogs.

Oh man! I remember seeing clips from this when I was kid and having no idea what I was watching. I've been looking for it ever since, and here it is. I was never sure if it was a dream or not.

I thought this was gonna be about Mondo cane, its English title that is. That particularly would make for a great Snob episode.

This one looks ten times more horrifying, I'll give you that though.
