A story of a boy and a dog separated after the boy's football-player father changes teams and results in the whole family moving state. The dog, Bingo, a former circus dog who fears fire, goes on a cross-country hunt to be reunited with his best friend.
This movie has examples of:
- Amplified Animal Aptitude: Bingo can use a public phone and while he can't speak he knows Morse code, he can also conduct a car (not drive, since he can't reach the pedals and has to rely on his dog friends to push the car from behind).
- Bound and Gagged: Several times in the film. First, a family taken hostage by two thugs, then later on, Chucky himself.
- Everyone Knows Morse: Bingo's knowledge of Morse (see Amplified Animal Aptitude) allows him to inform several police officers of a kidnapping by two thugs.
- Make the Dog Testify: Bingo is forced to testify against two thugs after saving a family from them. Despite not being on trial, Bingo is placed in a human!prison.
