Cool show.
13 May 2003 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I saw this show a summer ago on ABC, and before the show started there was an announcement saying, "The following is an educational program." Then the show started. But what was so educational about the show? And the answer was it focused on problems kids faced everyday. Temptation, meeting a new friend, conquering fear, telling the truth, prejudice etc. (sort of like FAT ALBERT or HEY ARNOLD!). The plot involves a superhero element, where a cartoon dog dresses up as a boy and goes to school, and shows his brain power. Leonard discovers it in the pilot, "Muttimorphisis". Classical music is in the background at times. Ian Waziloski (voiced by great voice actor Rob Paulsen) will gross you out and make you laugh. Nathan Lane does the voice of the talking blue dog, Scott Leadready, and Spot Helperman. Like other T.V. shows, there are jokes and gags, and sometimes musical numbers, plus references to movies and T.V. shows. I saw one episode that spoofed CARRIE (1976), and homage to MATILDA (1996). Parents, let your kids watch this show, than bombard them with PBS. Warning: on Friday, September 5th 2003, there will be a film adaptation of this show called TEACHER'S PET THE MOVIE. 75 minutes. I praise this film will do well at the box office. HEY ARNOLD: THE MOVIE and THE POWERPUFF GIRLS MOVIE flopped in the summer of 2002. THE RUGRATS MOVIE did well. I hope this does well along with the upcoming SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: THE MOVIE and THE SIMPSONS MOVIE. Parents, show your kids this cartoon show, and take them to TEACHER'S PET: THE MOVIE.
