Trivia

The Pound Puppies return from the 1985 TV Special of the Same Name. The main difference is that Cooler now has white fur instead of gray fur, Nose Marie sports a southern belle accent, Howler wears a yellow shirt and has a speaking role, and Bright Eyes is younger than her TV special counterpart. Whopper has been introduced as the new member of the Pound Puppies. Barkerville, Louie, Scrounger, and Violet Vanderfeller are absent (Although Barkverville, Scrounger, and Violet Vanderfeller made either cameo or guest starring appearances throughout the TV series).

Crazy Credits

During Season 1's title sequence, the Pound Puppies logo is shown and zooms out. During the same sequence, Cooler, Whopper, Bright Eyes, Nose Marie, and Howler are introduced and they bowed. Whopper is then chased by Katrina and Brattina and inaudibly tells the others that he was chased by a monster. In his thought bubble, the monster is revealed as Catgut and Bright Eyes is scared and runs to Holly. As Katrina, Brattina, and Catgut inch closer, Cooler backs at them and frightens them away. Nose Marie is seen wheeling a bunch of flowers with the Pound Puppies Logo, which irises out to Howler, whose record-like derby irises out to all the Pound Puppies who sang the lyrics to the end of the Pound Puppies theme song.

Only as an adult, do I get the real humor of this show.
2 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I watched this show as a child and now only as an adult with the knowledge of Joan Crawford's life as Mommie Dearest do I get the humor of this show, with that horrible mother -- Mommie Dearest -- and her horrible child, Bratina! I don't remember anything about the puppies but the sound of Bratina crying, "But Mommie Dearest" still rings in my ears years later. What a riot.
