Storyline

Saturday-morning cartoon series whose main characters, the wrinkled Pound Puppies, were inspired by the popular line of stuffed toys. 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. During its second season the show was titled "All New Pound Puppies". Written by Jonathan D. Parshall <jdp1981@netscape.net>

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.

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.
