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.

Superior
19 December 2002 | by (Tasmania) – See all my reviews

Superior mix of muppetry and traditional animation. I'm only familiar with Dog City from the four episodes available on VHS, but these were enough to make me wish someone had released the whole series on tape. The characters are good, the dialog often sophisticated and should appeal to adults as well as kids (especially adults with an interest in the animation industry. The scenes where Ace Heart (the main animated character) converses from his storyboard with Elliot (the main muppet character, his animator) are great. Ditto the way events oin the animator's 'real world' seque into plot arcs in the animation series-within-a-series. Very clever and appealing all round.

I'm not a huge muppet/Henson fan, but this one was cool. Shame it never got the recognition it deserved.

8 out of 10 for an animated TV series.
