Storyline

Bob Dog tries several jobs, but gets canned immedately. He returns home and gets pulled into a TV commercial for a K-Tel style album whose songs outline job search techniques, like You Gotta Have a Plan. He goes on an interview: after passing through a waiting room full of big scary characters, he is rejected immediately. For his next interview, he gets more aggressive too much so. For his last interview, he comes in as a one-man-band and is immediately ejected. He finds himself confronted by scary street characters who mock him for not having a job and awakens to the end of the commercial, and a ringing telephone. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Cute, often silly and fun cartoon

Nothing very earthshaking or profound with this cartoon. It's just a cute, occasionally funny, often profoundly silly cartoon. When I see it, I remember being eight and watching cartoons. It runs periodically on O Canada on the Cartoon Network. Well worth seeing.
