As a kid growing up watching television wasn’t something that we were allowed to do a lot of. While things have changed over the last 30+ years kids everywhere still love cartoons and watching television. Only now we are connected and watching television lots of the time as opposed to spending time doing things with family. So I always love family friendly shows that allows parents and kids to spend time together. Rock dog is the perfect show for that and is now available in stores and online everywhere. When a radio falls from the sky into the hands of a wide-eyed Tibetan Mastiff, he leaves home to fulfill his dream of becoming a musician, setting into motion a series of completely unexpected events. This heartwarming hilarious family film is a must watch for everyone.
