The Dog Who Saved Summer

Synopsis: School's out for summer... but not at the Bannister house! When their beloved dog Zeus (voiced by Mario Lopez) destroys a party planned by Belinda (Elisa Donovan), Grandma (Mindy Sterling) suggests they send him to obedience school. Things start off on the wrong paw when Zeus's owner George (Gary Valentine) runs afoul of the school's no-nonsense instructor Vernon (Martin Kove) and Zeus manages to fail every lesson. To make matters worse, Vernon's K-9 assistant, Apollo (voiced by William Zabka) makes class no dog-gone fun. With Zeus failing to improve, the Bannister children Kara and Ben (Francesca Capaldi and Cole Jensen) fear that the pound may be Zeus's next stop. Desperate to turn things around, Zeus enlists the help of a janitor, Mr. Lee (James Hong), who shares his unique training methods. Will Zeus' newfound skills help him win top dog at the school's showcase and foil a trio of bumbling thieves (Dean Cain, Patrick Muldoon, Joey "Coco" Diaz) determined to make this a bummer summe

Ah, summer.

The kids are out of school,

the parents are out of patience,

and the sprinklers are

ripe for playing.

That's my house right there,

and this is

where our story begins,

just another Saturday afternoon

for the Bannister family.

That's Belinda.

She's quickly becoming one of

the top party planners in town.

- Where's George?

- Zeus:
And she's got her hands full.

- George? What is he doing?

- ( sizzling )


George, I'm talking to you.

What? Belinda,

I'm in the weeds over here.

What are you doing?

You look like a campfire.

My eyes are burning.

I thought the girls might want

some Bannister bacon

buffalo burgers.

Honey, that sounds very heavy.

Well, they're char-broiled.

I need you to go

inside and check on the kids,

and get yourself cleaned up.

Okay, but you relax.

I think the party's

going great so far.

That's me, Zeus, you know,

like the Greek god.

Anyway, this is the story

of how I saved summer.

This is Agent Bannister

reporting to command.

I've reached the objective.

Stand by for recon.

( Door closes )

All right, let's see.

Looks like a member

of the royal family.

She's being guarded

by some sort of mutant.

Seems to be dripping

acidic slime from its mouth.

Whew. I'm going in.

- Ben!

- Princess is down!

- I repeat, the princess is down.

- Dad!

- Abort mission. I repeat,

abort mission.

Ben, are you terrorizing

your sister?

- No.

- Will you please tell him

- to leave me alone?

- Yeah.

Leave her alone

and go get lost, okay?

And Kara, it smells like Riley needs

a diaper change or something.

- Can you take care of that?

- That's gross, Dad.

- Why do I always have to do it?

- Because

- I have allergies.

- You do not have allergies.

Yeah? Talk to my doctor.


Come on, Versace.

Let's get Mommy some clients.

And of course,

I wanna thank my dear friend

Belinda Bannister for throwing

the best baby shower

I could ask for.

- Thank you.

- Thank you.

You are so welcome

and I'm just so glad

that everyone's

enjoying themselves.

We'll do dessert

and gifts shortly.

- Okay.

- Perfect.

Oh, boy.

I smell trouble,

or maybe it's just

too much perfume.

Excuse me.

Just one minute, okay?

- Lovely shower, Belinda.

- I know why you're here.

I can't come to give

a friend a little support?

You just want

to check out the competition.

- Versace:
And the grub.

- Don't even think about it.

Heh! Thing is, in order for you

to be my competition,

you have to be

in the same league as me.

Oh, call Marilyn for all

your party needs...

Weddings, showers,

bar mitzvahs, quinceaeras.

I love your dress,

by the way. You look beautiful.

Okay, okay, fine, fine.

Poach all you like,

but everybody here

is having a great time.

Come on, Versace.

Let's go mingle.


I smell frosting.

Hey, what do you think

you're doing?

Get down from there, now.

Life is a banquet,

and most poor suckers

are starving to death.

- Don't you dare.

- Why? It's not chocolate.

I mean it.

Would it upset you

if I just took a little nibble?

- Versace:

- The cake! Zeus!

Pardon me, ladies.

Do you have any Grey Poupon?

Hey, you.

Get back here.


Where are they going?

Oh, look, presents.

Are those for me?

Not the presents.

Can't stop

to smell the roses.

Belinda's been working

on this all summer.

My garden!


Nice shoes.


Now I've got you!

- Zeus!

- Uh-oh.

- You are in trouble, buddy.

- Best party ever.

It is a little funny.

- Come on.

- My nice party's ruined!
