The Sadly Hapless Misadventures of Guide Dog

The Sadly Hapless Misadventures of Guide Dog

Guide Dog is an animated short film by Bill Plympton, the second animation about Plympton’s hapless little Dog. Guide Dog is a sequel to Plympton’s 2005 Oscar Nominee Guard Dog. It was an Oscar Nomination commended animated short film in 2006. As with its predecessor, Guide Dog tells the story of absurdly overly-enthusiastic Dog trying to move up in the world through providing a service to others, this time as a guide-dog for people with disabilities, namely the blind. Inevitable disaster builds as he attempts to assist one disabled person after another, but only succeeds in causing ever-more terrible calamities. Ultimately, the little Dog’s hopes are sadly crushed, and once again he is left to slink away in solitary misery. Maybe one lesson for us all is that if at first you fail miserably, try again and you just might fail even more miserably.
