Storyline

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.

Thinking Scooby Doo?
25 March 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

I know, I know. A dog that solves mysteries. Of course Scooby Doo is going to pop into your mind when you hear that and you probably think this show is not original. Well it is. As the plot describes the show, Ace Hart is the creation of Elliot Shag (a muppet) and the two often talk with each other. This was a funny program but it has since dropped off the face of the Earth, never to be seen again. Too bad.
