Trivia

Character designs of Holly's parents were made. The father looks like Holly and the mother looks like Brattina (who was originally written as Holly's sister). According to the writers, Holly's parents died in some accident. They were to appear in a flashback in an episode but the idea was dropped. See more »

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 »

A comforting cartoon
11 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

I remember this was one of my favorite shows as a kid. My mother and I use to sit in her bed together watching this show. This show had good morals to it. There was nothing better than the comforting viewing each time of the friendship the characters shared. It's a lot better than some of the cartoon series they have on now for kids. I highly recommend this for the young children of today.
