Synopsis by Sally Barber
In Madeline and the Dog Show, the beloved French schoolgirl, Madeline, and the class pet, Genevieve, provide an important lesson for some pretentious dog owners. Madeline enters the mixed breed pooch Genevieve in a local dog show only to find the pet's talents of juggling, singing, and doing arithmetic, do not stack up against the pedigrees of the other dogs. Eyes are opened to the value of Genevieve's character when she saves the show dogs from drowning. The program is based on the book series by Ludwig Bemelmans and is narrated by Christopher Plummer.
