Everybody is busy with the preparations for the event of the year, the largest soccer game of all time! The favoured team of the "Wild Dogs " assumed the challenge of equally favoured "Lionkings". The coach of the "Wild Dogs " spends sleepless nights. Does Bulli his left defender never learns not to beat up his opponent- or Butcher, the-Keeper, never loose his fear of a penalty kick? Also in the opposing team there are problems. The best forward of the "Lionkings", the small lion, never wants to pass the ball. And to make things even worse, a swarm of Hooligeese is reported to be on the way.... Finally the time has come. The match is about to begin.
-From the Dingo Pictures website
- During their first talk with Harry, a brick appears between shots under Jovi's feet.
- Krummel isn't allowed to play soccer because he's too small, yet another small dog about his size gets to play in the match.
- The audio is out of sync with the visuals even more so than in other English-language versions of Dingo Pictures cartoons. All of the voice acting was done by one person, and very rarely do his lines correspond to the mouth movements of the characters.
- During the football match, the announcer reports on the ball missing the goal several seconds before it actually happens.
