When a casino owning dog named Charlie B. Barkin is murdered by his partner Carface, he finds himself in Heaven basically by default since all dogs go to heaven.

Once back, he teams up with his old partner, Itchy to prep his retaliation. He also stumbles onto an orphan girl named Anne Marie, who can talk to animals, thus allowing him to get the inside info on the races to ensure his wins to finance his plans. However, all the while, he is still haunted by nightmares on what's waiting for him on the other side unless he can prove that he is worthy of Heaven again.moreless

      • Killer: (after he realizes that Charlie is out of the pound, he enters Carface's office) It's him, Boss. I don't get it! Look, Mr. Carface, Boss, I know what you're thinking, but I don't know nothin' about this. We set him up for good!
        Carface: Killer.
        Killer: Uh-huh.
        Carface: I do not wish that I should share 50% of the business with my partner, Charlie.
        Killer: You want that I should go squeeze his head with the pliers?!
        Carface: Killer. Killer!
        Killer: Uh-huh.
        Carface: That is no way to treat an old friend. Friends must be handled in a friendly and business-like... way!

      • Itchy: (embraces Charlie after he's returned from Heaven) I'm so happy to see you, Charlie!
        Charlie: Shh! Itchy, shut up!
        Itchy: You don't know how much I missed ya! I said, "Boss...!"...
        Charlie: SHUT UP! You want the whole world to know I'm back?! You thought I was dead. So will Carface. That dirty rat killed me. Ah! He tried to kill me. But I'm gonna make him pay!
        Itchy: Oh, no, Boss. We don't wanna do that.
        Charlie: Yeah, we do! Listen, Itchy, I was always the brains of the outfit, wasn't I?
        Itchy: Yeah.
        Charlie: Well, when I left, he shoulda gone under!
        Itchy: That's it, Boss. We'll go under. Deep. Deep under. They'll never find us again.
        Charlie: No, I don't wanna go under. The operation grew. It got bigger. And bigger! And now he doesn't wanna share.
        Itchy: That's it, Boss. We could share a nice little place in the Himalayas.
        Charlie: I hate the Himalayas.
        Itchy: Wait a minute. They got gambling. They got races.
        Charlie: So what?
        Itchy: Well, they even got a town called Tibet. You know, "To Bet"? (laughs) Listen, Boss, we could nab us a few llamas, a couple of mountain goats, open a track of our own. Boss...
        Charlie: You know, he's got somethin' up his sleeve.
        Itchy: Yeah, a gun!
        Charlie: And when I find out what it is, I'm gonna ruin him! I'm gonna make him suffer. SLOW! He'll be beggin' for mercy!
        Itchy: Well, I'm beggin'. But I'm beggin' that we get outta here. Listen, Boss, Carface has got thugs, and they got muscles. Knives! and he's got a monster in his basement!
        Charlie: (after crushing a can) What?
        Itchy: And, Boss, THEY FEED IT!!
        Charlie: Monster?
        Itchy: Yeah! Monsters! I said "Monster"!!
        Charlie: Monster?!
        (thunder crashes; Charlie has an idea)
        Charlie: Hmmm... (laughs)!

      • Itchy: (whimpers) Charlie. Charlie! No. Eh... Hey, look out! Charlie, no!
        (he imagines that Carface is choking him by the neck)
        Itchy: NO!!!
        Charlie's voice: Itchy, it's okay. It's okay, little buddy. It's me, Charlie!
        (Itchy opens his eyes to see that is really is Charlie)
        Itchy: Oh! Charlie! Charlie, it's you! I-- I saw Carface, and he was chokin' me! He was grabbin' my neck, and then... Oh, hi, Charlie.
        Charlie: (laughs) Hi.
        (Itchy screams loudly)
        Charlie: SHH!!!
        Itchy: Charlie! I've been wrong! You're a ghost!
        Charlie: Itchy.
        (Itchy runs past Charlie and barks)
        Itchy: Get back! Get back! Don't hurt me! Here! Take my 9-piece ratchet set.
        (he throws his ratchets at Charlie but misses)
        Itchy: (throws his oil can at Charlie, but misses again) My oil can! Hey! Don't go 'way, widdout my Rolls-Royce Hood Ornament! HYAH!
        (he bangs Charlie on the head with said tool, but Charlie shakes it off)
        Charlie: I'm not a ghost! I'm not dead!
        Itchy: Please! I got a bad back. Uhh... Don't touch!
        (Charlie clutches Itchy's mouth)
        Charlie: Quiet! Itchy, I'm not a ghost. I'm not dead. Now, be quiet. I'm gonna take my hand away from your mouth, and you're gonna be quiet. Aren't ya?
        (Itchy nods nervously)
        Charlie: (chuckles and lets go of Itchy) That's my pal.
        (Itchy screams again)
        Charlie: WILL YOU SHUT UP?! Itchy! I'm alive! (extracts a flea) Lookit! Lookit! Do ghosts have fleas?
        Itchy: No. Ghosts don't have fleas.
        Charlie: Right.
        Itchy: Charlie? Charlie, it's really you. Oh, Charlie. But I saw the car...
        Charlie: I know.
        Itchy: And the river...
        Charlie: I know.
        Itchy: And your lifeless body... Flyin' through the air. Oh, Charlie.
        Charlie: Itchy, what can I say? (laughs) It wasn't my time.

      • You Can't Keep a Good Dog Down

        Charlie: Oh, you can't keep a good dog down.
        Itchy: No, sir!
        Charlie: No, you can't keep a good dog down.
        I seen pain and hurt.
        Itchy: That's right!
        Charlie: I've eaten dirt!
        Itchy: That's true!
        Charlie: It's hard to buy, but even I've been jilted by a skirt.
        Itchy: He lies!
        Charlie: But look how I'm still around.
        Itchy: Ha-ha!
        Charlie: Cause you can't keep a good dog down!
        Itchy: You can't keep a good dog down.
        Charlie: No, you can't!
        Itchy: No! No! No! You can't keep a good dog down.
        Dog: Preach it, brother!
        Charlie: I've been bought and sold.
        Itchy: He's been warm and cold.
        Dog: Me, too!
        Charlie: But 10 to 1, I'll still be runnin' rackets when I'm old!
        Itchy: Not in some cage in the city pound.
        Both: Cause you can't keep a good dog, can't keep a good... I say, you can't keep a good dog down!
        Itchy: In him's the luck of the Irish.
        Charlie: Ze pride of the German!
        Itchy: Even... Ha-ha! ...A bit of Siam!
        Charlie: Siam? You've seen the calm of the English.
        Itchy: The charrrrrrm of the Spanish!
        Charlie: The pedigree certainly ain't what I am!
        So call me a mixed-up pup.
        Itchy: You're a mixed-up pup!
        Charlie: But the only way this pup knows is UP!
        Itchy: Okay, boys! Come on! Come and get him! Get his legs. Lift him up. Come on! Get you're hands in!
        (he and Charlie get lifted up)
        Itchy: UP! UP! UP! C'mon!
        All: No, you can't keep a good dog dow-ow-ow-ow-own.
        You can't keep a good dog dow-ow-ow-ow-own!
        Itchy: He's been fat and thin.
        Charlie: I've been out, been in.
        Itchy: He tried a life of virtue...
        Charlie: But prefer a life of sin.
        Both: So tonight, man, we own this town!
        Charlie: I've known hunger. I've known thirst.
        Lived the best and seen the worst.
        But the only way I know to finish
        is to finish first!
        Charlie and Itchy: So watch out when you hear this sound!
        (all dogs howl)
        Charlie and Itchy: Cause you can't keep a good dog...
        No, you can't keep a good dog...
        Say, you can't keep a good dog down!
        (all dogs join together)
        All: You can't...
        keep a good...

      • Itchy: You're in love with the girl. Y-y-you've gone soft. You care about her.
        Charlie: Look, I don't care about the girl! I tell her things now and then. I pretend to be her best friend, but it's baloney!
        Itchy: I thought I was your best friend.
        Charlie: You are my best friend! With her, it's just business. It's always been business. I'm usin' the girl. And when we're done with 'er, we'll dump 'er in an orphanage! Is that okay with you?!
        Itchy: Sure, boss. Anything you say.

      • Flo: (about Anne-Marie) She's burning up with fever, Charlie. She could have pneumonia.
        Charlie: Think she needs a vet?
        Flo: Charlie, she's a little girl. She needs a doctor.
        Charlie: Doctor. Right. Doctor. I don't know any doctors, but I'll find one.

      • Itchy: (to the horse) Hey, listen. Try that again, you, and you are g-lue!

      • Charlie: (upon grabbing Itchy by the tail) I gotcha by the tail!
        Charlie: You know, it's not worth it being with you. It's not.
        (he drops Itchy)
        Itchy: Your hands are cold too.

      • Vera: Things have changed, Charlie, since you've been gone. Life hasn't been no piece of cake.
        Dog: Carface ain't been treatin' us too good.
        Vera: Things are tough, but we carry on.
        Smiley: Could you spare a couple o' bones for old times sake?
        Charlie: (takes both bones for the slot machine) Why settle for a couple of bones when you can have the whole BAKE?!
        (he laughs as he gives the machine a kick, enabling him to hit the jackpot)
        Itchy: Charlie! Charlie, look! You hit the jackpot! Attaboy, Charlie! I'm proud of ya! Charlie, tell 'em!

    • NOTES (9)

      • Charlie's "Girlfriend" Flo and the King Gator only appear in this movie.

      • Itchy & Killer's voice are the only carry-overs to later. Dom Deluise has played Itchy in both movies and the series and Charles Nelson Reilly has played Killer in the first movie and in the series (Killer was not in the second movie). Other than those two, the cast for the first movie is completely different than in the later one/series.

      • This movie seems to have a "darker" approach than the cheery-style of the later movie/series. Darker as in darker plot, since it's centered mainly around greed, death, and revenge. Also, there's a few words that Charlie says in that movie that wouldn't be considered "for all ages". Namely, "damn" (when he's dead) and "bimbo" (when he's telling Anne-Marie the story of Robin Hood)

      • This movie takes place in 1939 New Orleans around Mardi Gras. The 2nd movie and the series all take place in "modern day" (1996-1998 basically) San Francisco.

      • Although Anabelle only appears for a short time in this movie, you can note many obvious differences. First off, in ADGTH, she was voiced by Melba Moore, while in the rest she is voiced by Bebe Neuwirth. In ADGTH, her body is a lot more slender and sleek, and her face seems much more childish than in the later ones.

      • Charlie looks a lot different than later. First off, his fur has a different color shade in the first movie. Also, he has two black dots on his cheeks that only appear in ADGTH1.

      • The first movie was made in 1989. The Second movie, the TV series, and the X-mas special were made 7-9 years later. (1996-1998)

      • There is much to say about the first movie, since it's basically it's own category, so to speak. First off, the obvious, this movie is a LOT different than All Dogs Go To Heaven 2 and the TV series, mainly because Don Bluth created the original one. The Second movie, the TV series, and the Christmas Special were all done by Paul Sabella.

      • Heaven in this movie is also different from later. In this movie, Heaven is somewhat of an abstract place, it still has some of the "traditional clouds", but there's also a beautiful carpet and some sort of crystal-type objects in it.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • None: Burt R. Barkin/Loni A. Bowzer
        Though it's very hard to notice, in Anabelle's book of judgement you see a picture of Charlie's parents.

        His Mother is named "Loni A. Bowzer". That is a reference to the actress, Loni Anderson (Loni A.), who played Flo in this movie.

        Charlie's Father is named "Burt R. Barkin". That is a reference to the actor, Burt Reynolds (Burt R.), who played Charlie himself in this movie. Coincidentally, Charlie's Father's first name is Charlie's middle name, making his full name "Charles Burt Barkin", though he abbreviates it to B.
