Fluppy Dogs was a one hour special about a group of colorful, interdimensional, dog-like creatures who could visit other dimensions by opening doors with a special key. They could talk, and therefore were extremely valuable on Earth, thus atracting the notorious antagonist in the film. Only the children whom the Fluppies originally meet were trusted by the Fluppies. The special was supposed to be the pilot for a Disney cartoon, but the idea was canned. The special was based on a popular toyline, much like many shows at the time.
