For more information about the film, you can visit its IMDb page[^5^] or Wikipedia page[^7^].Shoeshine is amazed at his own speech and confirms for Jack that he can talk. After swearing Jack to secrecy, Shoeshine tells him of his origins. Meanwhile, Barsinister and Cad find a new lair beneath the city, then plan a robbery to fund rebuilding the serum. Seeing Cad's heist on the news, Jack convinces Shoeshine to intervene. Shoeshine disguises himself as a superhero named Underdog and confronts Cad and his henchmen. Underdog saves the hostages and apprehends Cad, who identifies Barsinister as his boss. Barsinister and Cad escape, but Underdog is hailed as a hero by the citizens and the police.


Underdog develops a crush on Molly, a spaniel who lives next door to Dan and Jack. Molly's owner is Polly Purebred, a TV reporter who has a crush on Shoeshine's alter ego. Underdog agrees to be interviewed by Polly, but gets distracted by a bank robbery and leaves her alone. Polly becomes suspicious of Shoeshine's behavior and tracks him down when he is about to stop another robbery with his superpowers. Polly confronts Shoeshine for lying to her and walks away in anger.


Underdog is depressed by Polly's rejection, but Jack convinces him that he can still win her back if he shows her who he really is. Meanwhile, Barsinister successfully recreates his serum and decides to inject it into other dogs along with a mind-control chip that will make them obey his commands. He sends Cad to kidnap Molly as a test subject, but Underdog rescues her and exposes Barsinister's plan to the public.


Underdog leads the police to Barsinister's lair, but is overwhelmed by his army of superpowered dogs. Barsinister captures Underdog and injects him with a reversal serum that strips him of his powers. He then orders Cad to attach a bomb collar to Underdog and activate it. Underdog, Polly, Molly, and the other dogs escape from the lair before it explodes.


As the timer on the collar counts down, Underdog admits that he is Shoeshine and apologizes to Polly for lying to her. Polly forgives him and kisses him on the nose. Underdog then regains his powers and manages to remove the collar before it detonates. He reunites with Dan and Jack, who have learned of his secret identity.


Underdog then tracks down Barsinister and Cad, who have survived the explosion and are fleeing in a helicopter. He knocks out Cad and confronts Barsinister on top of the helicopter. Barsinister threatens to inject Underdog with more reversal serum, but Underdog uses his super breath to blow him away. Underdog then returns the helicopter to the ground safely.


Barsinister and Cad are arrested by the police while Underdog is praised as a hero again. He decides to continue protecting Capitol City as Underdog while living with Dan and Jack as Shoeshine. He also becomes Molly's boyfriend and Polly's best friend.


The film ends with Underdog flying in the sky with his signature catchphrase: \"There's no need to fear! Underdog is here!\"
