Marty's always wanted a cute and lovable puppy, and one day his father surprises him with a dog of his very own. Marty's new puppy is so ugly he names him "Uglypuss" and ignores him. Uglypuss isn't daunted. He waits for the chance to prove his mettle, and when he bravely does, Marty understands at last that looks aren't everything. Full color.
