* LostShoeInTheStruggle: Well, naturally, the boys probably lose their clothes quite a lot, as during the transformation, their clothes come off, but particularly noticeable in a Series 5 episode, where Rachel has forgotten to bring clothes for Eric, but luckily, there are some clothes in the bag she is holding. It does not however, include shoes and socks, which Eric's dad comments on when he sees him. He stays like that for the rest of the episode, even when walking in a car park.

Also, in a series 2 episode, when Eric transforms while in a swimming bath changing rooms, as Roy forgets one of his socks, he later goes sockless, though not shoeless.

Woof! was a British tv series, running from 1989 to 1997, about a boy who periodically changes in a dog, similar in premise to The Shaggy Dog.

The series begins with a PilotMovie, about a kid named Eric Banks who suddenly finds himself occasionally turning into a small dog (naturally, usually at the worst possible times), totally at random, and naturally getting into all sorts of odd situations because of it. Throughout the movie he and his friend Roy try to find out what's causing it, and keep it a secret from Eric's parents, teachers, and everyone in between.
