SYNOPSIS

Pups of Liberty tells the story of the Boston Tea Party, using animated cats and dogs to represent the English and the American colonists. The year is 1776 and the Redcats have just arrived in Boston, announcing taxes on newspapers and "tea bones" from the Royal Tom-Cat. Unable to change the law, energetic young pup Anne Kennel and her father John, the town printer-hound, gather all of the colonist pups together to stage a tea bone boycott. Proclaiming "No Laws Without Paws!," the pups rally for their independence and lead the Americanine Revolution.
