Plot Synopsis:

Spoofing the 1972 blockbuster The Godfather (while paying homage to the classic gangster pictures of the 1930s and 40s), DePatie-Freleng's The Dogfather centers around a bumbling pack of canine mafiosi. Backed by his overgrown henchman Pug and the diminutive Louie (voice artist extraordinaire Daws Butler), the mumble-mouthed Dogfather (voiced by Bob Holt) unleashes his own breed of disorganized crime in a series of seventeen cartoons that were a conscious throwback to the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes films.
