I loved dot! I remember most of those being on the Disney Channel, but also borrowing them from the library. I forget which one, but she shrinks down and goes to explore the backyard, and there was footage of ants, or spiders, or something, and it always bothered me when I was a little kid. Such a girl...lol
*That's it! I'm so gonna be like Angela Bower...except with better clothes.*
Here's a list of all the Dot movies according to imdb Dot & the kangaroo (77') Around the world with Dot (81') Dot & the bunny (84') Dot & the koala (85') Dot & Keeto (86') Dot & the whale (86') Dot goes to Hollywood (87') Dot & the smugglers (87') Dot in space (94')
I first discovered the character Dot through The Electric Company magazine (the September 1983 issue, to be exact) - that particular issue's focus was cartoon characters from around the world. I also remember seeing a snippet of "Dot & The Kangaroo" on the TV series "The Great Space Coaster" in late 1983. One thing that really turned me off about Dot was that despite wearing a dress in all the movies she appeared in, why was she always barefoot?
Of course, I had no problem with female characters being barefoot and wearing a dress - as long as it's brief and not frequent.
And "Dot in Space"? That sounds bizarre. Guess they wanted to have the Dot movies go out with something abnormal and bizarre.
