Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A PBS series from the mid-late 1990's in which Wishbone, a well-read Jack Russell Terrier, would dream and imagine himself as the hero of various stories and novels.Wishbone was a real dog whose thoughts were expressed as a running voice-over, while all of the other characters in the stories being dramatized are humans. For instance, kids would get to see an otherwise dead-serious dramatization of Pride and Prejudice in which Mr. Darcy is a cute little dog in a suit and everyone else is human. And everyone acts as if the fact that Mr. Darcy is a talking dog is absolutely nothing at all out of the ordinary. Then again said dog is the one re-telling the stories and placing himself as certain characters.In between the story-telling, there was typically a scenario in the real world that would mirror the events of the story, usually involving Wishbone's owner Joe and his friends David and Samantha. Sometimes, Joe's mother Ellen and their next-door neighbor/gardener/historical society member Wanda get involved, as well as other residents of their generic suburban settlement of Oakdale, Texas. Whether it is supposed to be the real Oakdale is unknown.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The series ran for 50 episodes from October 1995 to December 1997. In 1998, the TV movie, Wishbone's Dog Days of the West was released.
