Excellent, underrated cartoon.
24 November 2008 | by (Ramona, CA) – See all my reviews

It's a shame not many people watch this cause it is EXCELLENT! I love the fact that Beethoven can talk and is shown as having a level-headed hero personality. But my favorite character is Sparky, his darker and more cynical sidekick who acts tough but has a heart of pure gold. I'm pretty sure that if this show were REALLY popular than Sparky would have his own fanlisting. My favorite character used to be the sensible tomboy collie, Ginger but Sparky just grew on me. Ginger usually acts as the show's cynic when Sparky's not around. Then of course, you've got the eccentric goof ball, Ceasar who always brings a smile with quotes like "Maybe if we concentrate REALLY hard, we can grow wings!".

Then of course you've got the Newtons and a guinea pig named Mr.Huggs who is constantly the butt of jokes. George is on the edge of a panic attack and Alice is a bit laid-back. I think Beethoven, Ryce, Ted and Emily have the upper-hand of the family personality-wise. All of the main cast are lovable in their own way. The minor, one-shot characters are mostly shown as jerks (Mowser), bullies (Killer, Puff Puff) or manipulative (Watson, Lionel).

They all go on all sorts of crazy adventures with chase scenes ensuing and whatnot. Highly recommended to fans of cartoon dogs, especially 90's cartoon dogs.
