April 30, 2010

Welcome to the world premiere of

You should always have a cartoon
before the show.

It's almost time...

Our Feature Presentation

(Be sure to watch the whole video!)

If you can't see the video above,
you can watch it on YouTube:

Please read below
you have watched the video!

Note from Jack: Well it seems that after we started to create the video, we realized that Norwood had a VERY STRICT time limit of two minutes for entries into the Pawdance Film Festival! We had so many good suggestions from everyone for characters and dialogue, we decided that we needed more than two minutes to get everything in. So we decided to do this 2 minute preview to submit to the Festival. I've got the tall guy working frantically on the FULL episode which we will post just as soon as he decides that sleep isn't important!

Note from the tall guy: I really want to thank everyone for all their wonderful ideas. I never thought that so many puples (that's people and puppies) would want to get involved - it was happily overwhelming! As Jack said, we didn't want to leave anyone out AND we need to work on a story that can accommodate 25 lead characters. (Where's Agatha Christie when you need her?) So, I'll keep working on the movie and try to incorporate as many of your ideas as possible. Also, if anyone from the Pixar studios is reading this and can offer suggestions on how to make dogs talk, it would be greatly appreciated!


  1. I love. Love, LOVE it!!!!
    Get my agent on the phone, I want an extended contract.
    I'm honored to be a part of this talented cast!

  6. Jack and TG!!!!
    Mom and I are speechless and that doesn't happen often to two Southern gals!!!! FANTASTIC, super duper well done 2 minute preview for the festival. We are sure there is an Oscar in your future maybe even 2!!!
    We also thoroughly enjoyed the cartoon and refreshment video...both brought back lots of memories.
    We both thank you for all the very hard work you are putting into Westward Ho!!!
    Happy Weekend,
    Miss Kitty and her agent (aka Mom)

  7. This is super exciting! Can't wait for the next episode!

  8. Nicely done Jack (TG)! Last time I went to the movies I fell asleep after the previews anyways so this seemed like a real movie to me!
    If you say 'speak' sometimes dogs will talk... oh that is not what you meant is it ;-)

  9. Sassy is sending some extra nuzzling to TG!

  10. BOL.. that is a lot of stars!

    woof - Tucker

  11. Jack and TG, you guys are troopers! You didn't know what you were getting yourselves into, did you! You always have the option of saying you ran out of money in pre-production.

  12. HaHaHa Well done TG and Jack!!!

    I'll be "standing by" anxiously awaiting the first episode... can't wait to see if I live or die. Maybe I should get my tux ready for the award show that will surely follow!

  13. Lucy says peanut butter in the roof of my mouth works when I need to say something. If it works for Mr. Ed it should be OK for Jack

  14. How absolutely totally cool! Ma hasn't seen a cartoon like that 'fore a movie since she'n was knee high to a grasshopper! Jes' loves that silly coyote! Ditto the snack ads - so much mo' bettah than "previews" heheh! Oh you did so good, Jack - this is just so good! I think Norwood will have to relent for your film, Jack! But loved the preview and that little wheel B&W thingie at the end. What a great evening of entertainment!

  15. I can't wait for the next show! AND I can't believe I got to be a good guy! Thanks Jack! Mike really liked the snack ads....You guys are just amazing with what you come up with! Thanks!

  16. That was a great intro! Looking forward to episode 1~

  17. Pretty'll definitely be a box-office smash! Waiting on the edge of my bed...for next instalment!

  18. That is very cool!! Can't wait to see the next one!! Debbie and Holly

  19. I'm sure this will be an award winner and cannot wait for the full-blown premiere! Will the entrants be peein' on a red carpet on the big night is what I wanna know.

    Too bad my PU didn't think to spend a little more time on my entry. She was not aware of the deadline extension but I am more excited to see all the creatively fun ideas than winnin' anyway.

    Woofs and extended slobbers,
    Chester ;0=)

  20. Pawtastic movie!! Can hardly wait for the next episode. Those cartoons were wonderful. That is a big cast of superstars. You might have to have a lot of episodes to get them all in.

  21. Well Done! Can't wait for the next episode!

  22. Oh oh oh I just knew my 'Star' qualities would finally be recognized!

  24. Mama is too busy laughing to let me comment on how wonderful everything is....uh oh...looks like Mama is rolling on the ground laughing...


    OH...and did anyone mention that Norwood pushed his deadline back to May 9th...

  25. That was sooo fun to watch Jack and TG!!! Think you've started something fantastic.... Wootwoot! You have a captive audience and a line of want-in actors!!! Probably need some sponsors to put this all together!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

    I'm hooked!

  30. I'm behind in my blog visiting, but I laughed out loud at all these entries! Too funny!
