Who's Who? Wednesday

December 28, 2011


Dug is the fun and lovable Golden Retriever from Disney/Pixar's 2009 hit film 'Up.' You can also play the part of his character in the Up video game. He can also be seen in other animated shorts such as 'George and AJ,' and a leading role in 'Dug's Special Mission.' He can also be found in merchandise such as clothes, books, stuffed animals, toys, desktop wallpaper, countless ringtones and pins.

*Fun Find* Dug has a cameo in Disney/Pixar's 2007 film 'Ratatouille.'

During the film, Dug lives in two different places. First, and for most of the movie, he resides in the Spirit of Adventure ship. Later in the film he ends up living with his master, Carl Fredrickson, who he loves very much. Dug has friends that he helps and that help him with anything. Those friends include Kevin and her babies, Carl Fredrickson, and Russell. His enemies include Charles Muntz, Beta, Gamma, Alpha and Muntz's other clan of dogs.

Dug is your normal every day dog: he has brown fur and wears a brown collar; although this collar is extremely special because it is invented by Charles Muntz as a translator to all of the dogs under Muntz's command. Dug unfortunately also wears cone of shame in the film, which is used as punishment for not doing as Muntz or Alpha ask of him.

He is voiced by Bob Petersen, who was actually one of the writers and co-directors on the film. This is one of many Pixar movies in my opinion that could have a sequel attached in the coming years.

Dug can be seen at Disney parks around the world as a meet and greet character and also in different parades. He can also be found over at Disney California Adventure for The Wilderness Explorer Camp, and also for the amazing night time water show, World of Color. Would you like to see an Up attraction in the future? I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas for attraction types on this over in the forums.
