TUFF Puppy has overtones of "Rocky and Bulwinkle" and "Dangermouse". They don't just break the Fourth Wall; they hit us over the head with it. Their basic message is, we're in this for fun, and if you're not up with that, shop elsewhere. Dudley is as dumb as Stimpy (Ren and Stimpy) or Billy (Billy and Mandy). Yet he always somehow knows how to crack the case and snare the villains. Kitty Katswell is already a hit on the internet, and a glorious match for the obstinately stupid Dudley. Ketswell (T.U.F.F.'s "Q") is... deliciously weird. I suppose my favorite "villain" is the Chameleon (voiced by Daran Norris, who also does the Chief), but it's up for grabs. It's all about the silliness, and fun, and goofing around. My favorite shot about what this show's all about: in the pilot, when told by the Chief that she has to train Dudldy, Kitty says "Are you nuts?" And the Chief says "No, Agent Nuts is over there." Cut to a squirrel who stuffs two handfuls of nuts in his cheeks and then bugs out. There you go.
