|Don Bluth’s 1989 animated feature, All Dogs Go To Heaven, featured a roguish mutt named Charlie, who died, went to heaven (as all dogs do), conned his way back to earth for vengeance on his killer, then found redemption through a little orphaned girl. The film warmed audience’s hearts, spawning a film sequel and this animated series.
All Dogs Go To Heaven: The Series cast Charlie and doggie pal Itchy as guardian angels to kids in need. The show was a family comedy, with Charlie and Itchy getting mixed up in several misadventures while trying to do the right thing. Charlie’s villainous rival, Carface, also carried over into the series, as did Charlie’s pooch pals Sasha, Annabelle, and Killer.
Most of the voice actors from the feature film reprised their roles in the series, including Dom DeLuise, Ernest Borgnine, Charles Nelson Reilly, Bebe Neuwirth, and Sheena Easton.
