Ace Hart is a private eye in Dog City, where all the characters are dogs, everyone is a wisecracker, and every canine pun ever thought of is used liberally. Most of his cases lead him to Bugsy, the Dogfather, and his hapless minions. Meanwhile, he discusses his cases and all manner of cartoon cliches with Elliott, his Muppet creator in the real world. As Elliott rushes to complete his stories through numerous distractions and within deadline, Ace regularly finds himself yanked between divergent storylines and impossibly-convenient plot threads.

Good, occasionally great series
16 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An extremely bizarre set-up that worked more often than not. Eliot Shag, a Muppet, was the sole animator (and, one would assume, did all the voices?) for an animated noir series starring Ace Hart, Private Eye Dog. Ace functioned as Eliot's alter ego - suave where Eliot was unsure

  • and would occasionally stop the action of the cartoon to argue plot

points with his creator. This provided the show with its best moments: Ace wanting to use a .45 despite Eliot's steadfast rule against guns, Ace's refusal to do anything "science-fiction-y", and of course Ace's frustration of never getting together with police-dog Rosie.

Some excellent characters in this show. I for one hate the ubiquitous "cutesy" kids that these shows always have, but Artie (and his animated counterpart Eddie) managed to be fun and endearing rather than annoying. Replacing the rather innocuous Colleen with the more headstrong Terri was a good move. The writers apparently tried to "up the hip quotient" on Eliot in the second season, ditching his sweater and giving him a Hawaiian shirt. I actually preferred him more as the awkward loner, but that was fine. Like many shows of its ilk, it did run out of steam at the end, padding itself out with pointless bits like "Madog's Poetry Corner" and "Terri & Dot". Still, a definite cut above most of the other animated/children's programs of the day. Cool-as-heck theme song, too.
