Nobody knows who you are!
Do the Dog Police use leashes instead of handcuffs? I miss the wonderful oddities of the '80s. Thanks for the reminder, Retroist!
I'm pretty sure I saw 1-800 during one of Weird Al's MTV takeovers. Before I started reading the article, I thought you were going to be talking about Henson's Dog City (which also has a catchy tune) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJMRC1FWFyE
Loved this post, and while I only vaguely remembered this band / experience, 1-800 sent me on a wonderfully demented Dog Police, Mothers of Invention, Frank Zappa, Frog Brigade rabbit hole and I'm totally here for it. Or "hear" in this case. Buh-dum-chish.
As soon as I saw the subject line Dog Police I immediately recalled the video in my head. I just watched the video again and impressed with the makeup for the time it was made. I don’t recall the other video 1-800.
Thanks for posting this - I feel partially responsible for digging this back up!
