A stylish depiction of the life of a food-obsessed urban dog, with hints of edible humour.
Like most dogs, Harold is food-obsessed; unlike most dogs, he imagines food in the most unlikely places – on buildings, cars, mailboxes, even fire hydrants!
When Harold gets lost in the big city, he is overtaken by hunger and begins to see things: hot dogs on an antenna, a turkey roast in the mailbox, and toast popping out the top of a build-ing! Thankfully, Harold’s hungry eyes lead him to familiar landmarks and he finds his way home…to breakfast!
