Here, the Pound Puppies lived at the pound, but could get out though a secret tunnel. Assisted by their human friend Holly, they tried to outwit Holly's evil guardian, Katrina Stoneheart, and her spoiled daughter, Brattina.

Crazy Credits

During Season 2's title sequence, the camera zooms out to a different Pound Puppies logo, this time with Cooler in the logo and Katrina's dog pound in the background. In one scene, The Pound Puppies(With Howler absent) introduce themselves. The scene irises out to another scene where Cooler rescues three puppies and gives them to new owners. In another scene, Katrina, Brattina, and Catgut are looking at a wanted poster they made with the Pound Puppies(Now including Howler) picture in it. Catgut slices the wanted poster and the Pound Puppies come out and are chased by Katrina. Katrina catches them and puts the Pound Puppies in a kennel. The Pound Puppies fall through a trap door and slide down into their headquarters via Pupscalator with Holly waiting for them. At the end of the sequence, the camera then pans up to the same Pound Puppies logo. See more »

Good show for the time
9 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to really like this show when I was....well, I was a kid but I was probably too old for cartoons even in 1986. Thankfully, the cartoon wasn't in the just-for-girls vein the toy line was, so I guess I can salvage SOME dignity ;) There's a movie missing from the database, I've noticed. The original Pound Puppies movie, NOT the Legend of Big Paw (which is in the IMDb database). It has most of the characters that were on the TV series, with some differences. Bright Eyes is actually intelligent (and if I'm not mistaken, is voiced by the same talent that provides the voice for "Bratina" in the TV series). Nose Marie is simply called The Nose and has a thick New York accent instead of being a southern belle. And the story takes place at the City Pound instead of the rather benign-looking suburban setting of the TV show.
