Synopsis

Triple bill of light-hearted films following the adventures of the Bannister family and their dog, Zeus. 'The Dog Who Saved Christmas' (2009) tells the story of ex-police dog Zeus (voiced by Mario Lopez), adopted by the Bannister family after failing disastrously at his former vocation. However, when the family are away for Christmas and the house is broken into by a couple of burglars, Ted (Dean Cain) and Stewey (Joey Diaz), Zeus's policing instincts are awakened and he battles to save the family's prized possessions and foil the burglars. 'The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation' (2010) sees the Bannisters and Zeus, retreat to a plush Rocky Mountain resort for Christmas. They are joined by the family's brash Uncle Randy (Casper Van Dien) and - more interestingly from Zeus's point of view - his flirtatious poodle, Bella (voice of Paris Hilton). Joining the party in less conventional style are thieves Ted and Stewey. Presumably having failed to learn their lesson from the first film, the pair once again find themselves pursued by crime-stopper Zeus - if he doesn't get too distracted by Bella along the way, that is. In 'The Dog Who Saved Halloween' (2011) the Bannister family and Zeus (voice of Joey Lawrence) have just moved into a new house. All is well in the house itself, but their neighbour, Eli (Lance Henrikson), and his dog, Medusa (voice of Mayim Bialik), seem to be strange characters. So strange are the happenings across at Eli's, that George Bannister (Gary Valentine) enlists the help of his former enemies, Ted and Stewey, to investigate. When the three fail to return, Zeus is once again called to save the day.
