A 1991 animated feature film produced by Hyperion Pictures and released by WarnerBros, starring the voice talents of comedian Creator/RodneyDangerfield, who also wrote and co-produced the film. The story follows a street-smart dog named Rover, who is owned by a Las Vegas showgirl named Connie. One day Rover accidentally ruins an important deal between Connie's boyfriend, Rocky, and a group of gangsters. In revenge, Rocky stuffs Rover in a bag and tosses him over Hoover Dam. Rather than dying, Rover is saved downstream and ends up earning a living on a farm that's very different from the Strip.

!!This film contains examples of:
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Rover is thrown off the Hoover Dam, in the middle of the barren Mojave Desert, and washes up in an environment more like the Midwest.
* BabiesEverAfter
* BlackComedyBurst: The Turkey scene.
* CasanovaWannabe: Rover.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Rover.
* [[BlackComedy Dead Turkey Comedy]]: Averted. The turkey gets killed, but it ain't played for laughs.
** Well, afterwards it isn't, but the goofy way Rover tries to revive said Turkey clearly was meant to.
* EpicFail: Rover fails so badly at sheep herding that when he turns his back on them to be with Daisy they've somehow gotten stuck up a tree.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Yes, children, the silly turkey dies, on camera, [[NightmareFuel mouth agape, eyes wide in terror.]]
** And broken neck swaying.
* {{Fanservice}}: There's a shot of Rover's owner in a ''very'' skimpy Las Vegas showgirl uniform at one point -- it shows a shocking amount of skin considering it's in a movie for children.
* FishEyes: As is apparently common in cartoons of Rodney Dangerfield himself, Rover's eyes are often drawn slightly like this.
* GenderEqualsBreed: [[spoiler: Rover and Daisy's pups; 5 little Rovers and one little Daisy.]]
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Inverted; the film provides a rare example of the opposite!
* HurricaneOfPuns: In some scenes, the one-liners contain puns a lot.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Basically the main source for humor.
* InkSuitActor: Rover to Rodney Dangerfield.
* {{Jerkass}}: Rocky, the nastiest [[KickTheDog dog-kicking]] [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys classic "bad boy"]] you'll ever see. [[spoiler:He totally deserved to [[KarmicDeath see the Hoover Dam]] in the end.]]
* LongBusTrip: Eddie, Rover's little buddy at the beginning. Whatever happened to him in the end?
* MoodDissonance: Two characters are KilledOffForReal during the span of the movie, one on-screen and one off-screen, and both in rather dark ways. [[spoiler:And Rover himself nearly gets the ''OldYeller'' treatment after being wrongly suspected of killing the turkey.]]
* NiceGuy: Raffles.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Rover Dangerfield, not hard to figure this out.
* OneLiner
* ObviouslyEvil: Rocky.
* [[OfCorpseHesAlive Of Corpse He's Alive]]: Rover attempts this with the turkey. The farmer isn't fooled.
* ShootTheDog: Subverted.
* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: Came out during this era.
* VivaLasVegas: Though most of the film takes place on a farm, the shots in Vegas have lots of scenes of flashing lights, casinos, and sequin clad feathery showgirls.
