No, this isn't a sequel to Nick Nack Paddy Whack. This kiddie-oriented British film concerns a young boy named Mickey Merry (Richard Davies) and his faithful dog Ringo (played by comedian Ronnie Stevens, a human being in canine drag). The two heroes come face to face with the Rat King (Richard Warner), a rodent megalomaniac. The Rat King's plans to take over the world are foiled by Mickey and Ringo. Based on the whimsical Christmas Pantomime-style play by Peter Howard, Give a Dog a Bone, represented the next-to-last directorial effort of Henry Cass, who in his days of glory was responsible for such films as the 1950 Alec Guinness vehicle Last Holiday.
