The crime rate is going through the roof—and at Norton Securities, business is going to the dogs. Desperate to save her father’s company, Casey Norton (Valerie Bertinelli, TV’s One Day at a Time) and her fiancé, electronics genius Brian Foster (Wesley Eure, TV’s Land of the Lost), are about to unveil a secret weapon that’ll have burglars begging for mercy: C.H.O.M.P.S. (Canine Home Protection System), the world’s first computerized watchdog! Faster than a speeding pit bull and able to leap tall fire hydrants in a single bound, this powerful pooch is programmed to sink his teeth into crime. But when the company’s rivals hear about C.H.O.M.P.S., they hire a pair of prowlers to destroy him. Now Casey and Brian must catch the crooks and outsmart the competition, before Norton Securities winds up in the doghouse! Co-starring Conrad Bain (TV’s Diff’rent Strokes), Chuck McCann (Hamburger: The Motion Picture), Red Buttons (The Poseidon Adventure), Larry Bishop (The Devil’s 8) and Jim Backus (TV’s Gilligan’s Island), C.H.O.M.P.S. is the family farce that will “short circuit” its way into your heart! Directed by Don Chaffey (One Million Years B.C.).
