''Dogs'' landed in theaters on 17 November 1989; on the same day, [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]] released ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', resulting in one of the worst cases of DuelingMovies in film history. [[labelnote:Explanation]]This was shortly after Don Bluth's ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' had won a victory over Disney's ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', so Disney were determined to make up for it. Following this movie, Disney would produce ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' and Bluth would produce ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'', and the two movies destroyed each other.[[/labelnote]] The film received a sequel, ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven2'' (par for the course for [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation every animated film ever during that time]]), and a TV series adaptation (with neither of which Bluth had any involvement).

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Despite what TheNostalgiaCritic might have you believe, this is actually a ''subversion''. [[spoiler:King Gator is impressed by Charlie's singing in response to his own, telling him he will come to his aid. When trying to rescue Anne Marie at the climax, Carface attempts to drown Charlie only for him to start howling underwater, which gets the attention of King Gator to free him and help attack Carface's Mooks.]]

* AnimalTalk: A variation: animals can only talk to others of their own species, while the orphan girl Anne-Marie [[SpeaksFluentAnimal is the only character who is able to speak to ''all'' animals]]. This is made explicit when it's revealed that Anne-Marie is being exploited by Carface, since she can inform him who will win in a race. It's held pretty consistent throughout the film... except when it isn't (e.g., King Gator and Charlie's literal BigLippedAlligatorMoment.)

** A horse also seems to respond to Itchy implying that it is stupid.
*** Not to say you can't, y'know, learn another language. Or just read body language or tone of voice; it's not like Itchy's trying to be subtle about it.
