On Sept. 20, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will honor either "Cathy" or "Garfield Goes Hollywood" as the best animated program of the 1986-87 prime-time TV season. Regardless of which wins, the Emmy will go to the wrong show. The best animated program of 1986-87 was the "Family Dog" episode of "Amazing Stories," which wasn't even considered, due to a questionable interpretation of the Academy's regulations.

A one-month-old Lancaster girl died Wednesday after the family dog bit her on the head, apparently out of jealousy, authorities said. Ashley Simmons died about 8 a.m. at Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center, hospital officials said.

Over the last two decades, prime-time animated specials have degenerated into formulaic programs centered around holiday themes or comic-strip characters.

Like a patient recovering from an emergency appendectomy, anyone stuck watching the double-episode premiere of "Family Dog" (at 8 tonight on CBS, Channels 2 and 8) can take comfort in the fact that they should only have to endure it once. This dismal animated series gives new meaning to the phrase "what the dog dragged in."
