Teacher's Pet
Release: January 16, 2004
Release: January 16, 2004

Leonard Helperman is a 4th grader whose mother and teacher, Mary Lou, has been nominated for a teaching award. They plan a trip to Florida for the finals, but need to leave their dog, Spot, behind. What Mrs. Helperman doesn't know is that Spot has been masquerading as a boy, Scott, who is her star pupil. Spot wants nothing more than to be a real boy, and sees a way to this when mad scientist Ivan Krank appears on The Barry Anger Show. Krank thinks he can turn animals into humans. Conveniently, his lab is right down the street from where the Helpermans are staying, so Spot, as Scott (and the rest of his family), convinces Mary Lou to take him along. Spot becomes a man, but discovers it's not everything he ever dreamed of after all.

Spot/Scott: "So this is what it's like to be human, huh? [He sits on the bed, and then lies back] Sittin' alone in a dump on your tailless butt, just twiddlin' your opposable thumbs. Top of the world, ma! [He sighs, then sobs, then curls up into a little ball on the bed] Top of the world."

Mrs. Helperman: "After all the trouble Mr. Manly-Manning has gone to, the least we can do is invite him in for a cup of coffee."
Leonard: "Coffee?"
Spot/Scott: "I always wanted to try coffee. [Moments later, Scott has tried coffee and is completely hyped up] Boy, it's true what they say! What a beverage! Who'd believe that little brown bean from Brazil could pack such mellow, rich-roasting, good-to-the-last-drop flavor? By the way, were you aware that our 26th President, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt who originally coined the phrase "Good to the last drop"? Little known fact but true."
