GUITAR-WIELDING WUNDERKIND MIKE AMATT helmed this romp about his titular pet dog Mop and cat Smiff, who proceeded to turn into animation for dull adventures bookended by live action with a musical bent. Fantastic brass band oom-pah signature tune would always promise riches, only to leave you sorely disappointed when the camera came up on Mike et al visiting yet another canal boat or gypsy caravan. Title song also perpetuated preposterous bit of rhyming with lyrics “Mop and Smiff/there’s no buts no ifs”. …MOKE took the dog out in a Mini Moke for a dreary GO WITH NOAKES-style meet-the-kids-of-Britain tour. With a musical bent.
