Beethoven's Treasure Tail

Synopsis: Get ready to howl with laughter in this all-new family comedy starring America's favorite St. Bernard, the one and only Beethoven! After a doggone disaster of a movie shoot, the big-hearted pooch and his trainer, Eddie (Jonathan Silverman, Beethoven's Big Break), are heading home when they get stranded in a small coastal village. When Beethoven befriends a local boy (Bretton Manley), he helps him find a pirate map to lost treasure and together they em-bark on an adventure that brings the whole town together. Co-starring Morgan Fairchild (Flamingo Road), Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Bretton Manley (Ted), and Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), it's a heartwarming "tail" about finding fun wherever your nose leads you.

Are you sure it's

safe, Mr. Duncan?


Your Excellency, having your

Viennese MacGuffin on display

at our humble casino is an

honor we take very seriously.

There are locks on

each of the windows,

guards on all of the doors.

And should someone

get past those,

we have this.

E, zero, one, one.


So you see, Your Excellency,

your priceless bird is

as secure in this room

as if it were in

your own castle.

Shall we?

And this is our jewel.

The Crown Room.

With our compliments.

Ah, thank you.

Now, Excellency, as you know,

the unveiling is at midnight.

In the meanwhile,

it would be our great privilege

to offer you the

hospitality of the tables.

Bonne chance.

Oh, no.

Security. Security.

We have an intruder. l

repeat, we have an intruder.



l've got a visual

on the intruder.

He's big, four legged. Furry.

And he's got the MacGuffin.

Where'd he go? That way!

Over there!


That's my MacGuffin!


He's heading for the window!

Come on, boy. And Jump.

And jump, Beethoven.

Come on. Jump.

Come on, buddy. Jump! Jump!

Come on, you can do this jump.

You've done this jump in every

movie we've made together. Yeah.

Just Come to Mr. Bear.

You love Mr. Bear.

Yo, Justin!

I'm acting here!


- Eddie, what's wrong?

- Nothing.

Nothing is wrong.

Everything is fine.

He just, he needs another

chance at it, that's all.

Another chance?

We've done 44 takes

and this stupid dog

still can't get it right.

Justin, don't worry, now

Eddie's a very good trainer.

Are you kidding?

L don't think this guy

could train a monkey

to throw poop.

You're the producer, Charlene.

You've got a problem.

So fix it.

That's lunch!

All right,

that's lunch, people. One hour.

Listen, one, two, three.

One, two, three. And jump.

We've made six

movies together.

He's never done

anything like this before.

He's even ignoring Mr. Bear.

My son gave him Mr. Bear.

He loves Mr. Bear.

It's not Mr. Bear.


What is it?


It's nothing?

Well, physically nothing

anyway. But mentally,

l think Beethoven is depressed.

He's depressed?

Yeah. He seems to have

lost his

zest for life.

His spark.

His joie de vivre.

For want of a better

word, his "Mojo."

His "Mojo?" Yeah.

The thing that

makes him Beethoven.

Well, you're a doctor. Can't you

just give him a pill or something?

A pill is not going

to help this dog.

Maybe a change

would do him some good.

Maybe if he did something

different for a while.


No. He loves making movies.

Don't you, boy?

Hey, do you love making movies?

Or is it you?

I'll send you my bill.

Goodbye, Beethoven.

But. Hey.

Wait, you've... Gotta see a

Chihuahua on stage five.

Eddie, a word?

Sure, Charlene.

It's about Beethoven.

Oh, yeah, good news.

The doctor says there's

absolutely nothing

physically wrong

with Beethoven,

so we can get

right back to work.

Well, um, the thing is,

we won't need him, or you.

l'm sorry.

L don't quite understand.

I talked to the studio.

And we're shutting

down production

on Spy Dog Three until we

can find a replacement.

A replacement? You are

gonna replace Beethoven?

Honey, it's nothing personal.

Please. lt's just business.

l could fix it.

L could re-train him.

I could get him to do

whatever you want him to do.

Eddie, there just isn't time.

Look the studio...

We... l mean,

the studio and l...

We just think it's better for

the picture if we just move on

and find ourselves another Spy Dog.

l'm so sorry.

I see. So that's it?

You're firing us.

You're sticking us on a

plane and sending us home?

Oh, about that.

You are going to send

us home, aren't you?

We're no longer obligated

to provide you with travel.

Charlene, do you know

how much it costs

to fly all the way back to California?

l can't afford it.

Eddie, don't worry.

L've arranged for a car.

Yeah, yeah, that's right.

Beethoven. The famous dog.

Yeah, he will be available

for any new movie

you've got coming around.


No, he wasn't fired.

It was what we in the business like

to call creative differences, so...



They hung up.

Good day to you.

L represent Beethoven.

You might have heard of him. The

world-famous movie star dog.

Yeah. Dog.

Yeah, so if you're

interested in having

Beethoven appear on

your television show,

Il'l be more than happy to

discuss his fees with you.

Fired? No. No!

Why does everyone

think that he was fired?

It was just a matter of...

We didn't think the producers

were allowing him to show off

to the best of his ability.


Yes, l'm sure

Beethoven would be happy

to make a live appearance at the

opening of your new grocery store.

What does he charge? Oh.

Well, l'm sure we'll be open to negotiation...



Ah. Aah!

I'll have to... l'll call you back!


I'm sorry!

Stop! Stop! The brakes!



You okay, buddy?

All right.

Let's see what we did?


O'Malley's Cove.

That must be O'Malley's

Cove down there.

What do you say we

find a gas station

and have them check it out

before we hit the road again.

All right. Let's get going.

Come on. Chop, chop, chop.

Hey, listen, buddy,

l'm driving. Out of here.


Seatbelts on.

Oh, no.

Oh, you have got

to be kidding me.

Come on!



Doesn't look like there's much

treasure left in O'Malley's Cove.

I just hope the gas
