Trivia

In an early draft, Katrina Stoneheart was going to reprise her role as the villain. She was later written out of the movie because the story writers wanted a villain who wanted to gain "puppy power" and use it to control the world. All of the writers thought it wouldn't work if Katrina was used, so Marvin McNasty was created to replace her as the villain. Since Katrina was written out, Brattina and Catgut also had to be written out. See more »

Goofs

When Whopper and Collette are recaptured by McNasty's henchmen, there is one short sequence where Collette is together with the others, in place of Nose Marie. See more »

Calling this mediocrity is a bit kind, but it was one of my childhood favorites
3 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually loved this movie when I was little. I had it on video and watched it all of the time. I noticed a lot of the technical goofs as I got older, but they didn't really ruin the movie for me. I enjoyed pretty much every moment, every character, every song, and every joke. I think it's because I saw the movie when I was very little and loved cats, dogs, and music enough for the movie to have a big impression on me. I've outgrown the movie now but there's still a heavy nostalgia cloud around it for me. All I can really say for others is this: Pound Puppies is corny and messy like many of the toy-based movies from the '80s, but little kids might like it. It can work as a time-waster for them, but it won't mean much of anything to people who are older.
