'Family Dog' A couple of year's ago, it looked like there was hope that "Family Dog" would live to bark another day. The first season of "Amazing Stories" was released on DVD, which was good news for "Family Dog" fans, as this sometimes crude 'toon about a disrespected canine was birthed in Season 2 of the sci-fi serial. Alas, it's been three years, and no second season of "Amazing Stories" has materialized, nor has there been any inkling that the short-lived CBS spin-off entitled "Family Dog" would ever again see the light of day. The initial "Amazing Stories" installment was written and directed by Brad Bird, later of Pixar fame. Bird didn't stick around for the CBS series, though, but Tim Burton was listed as a producer.
