C.H.O.M.P.S. is a 1979 American comic science fiction family film produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and directed by Don Chaffey, his final feature film.


Brian Foster (Wesley Eure), a young inventor, creates a robotic dog for use as part of a home protection system. C.H.O.M.P.S. is an acronym for "Canine HOMe Protection System". Ralph Norton (Conrad Bain) is his boss, with whom he constantly argues. Foster develops a relationship with Norton's daughter, Casey (Valerie Bertinelli). A rival company wants the dog and sends a few petty criminals to dognap "C.H.O.M.P.S."



Scholastic Corporation released a 121-page book version of the film's story at the time of the film's first release.
