Bristle Face is a stray hound with a fondness for hunting turtles. Orphaned Jace Landers (Philip Alford) adopts the personable mutt. With the help of Luke Swank (Brian Keith), Bristle Face learns how to hunt foxes. Trouble is, the dog doesn't know when to stop hunting. This made-for-TV Disney production boasts an impressive supporting cast, including Wallace Ford, Parley Baer, Miss Jeff Donnell (as she used to be billed on The George Gobel Show), Slim Pickens and George "Goober" Lindsay. Bristle Face was originally telecast January 26 and February 2, 1964, as a two-part entry on Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
