CONNICKUH SPECIAL: My Dog Skip (2000)

my dog skip

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for the real reason for the season – Connickuh!

Every year, we celebrate the life and works of Sir Harry Connick, Jr., he of the golden voice and chiseled jaw. This year, our old friend Derek Jarvis comes on the show to harken back to the 1940s with the Frankie Muniz boy-and-his-dog movie My Dog Skip!

Based on the memoir by William Morris, My Dog Skip follows young Willie (Frankie Muniz, voiced by Connick as an adult) growing up in the 40s with his adorable Jack Russell Terrier Skip. Along the way, he finds love, becomes a man, and defeats some moonshiners! (?) It’s basically Tree of Life with a cute pupper instead of dinosaurs – what’s not to love?
