Storyline

Saturday-morning cartoon series whose main characters, the wrinkled Pound Puppies, were inspired by the popular line of stuffed toys. Here, the Pound Puppies lived at the pound, but could get out though a secret tunnel. Assisted by their human friend Holly, they tried to outwit Holly's evil guardian, Katrina Stoneheart, and her spoiled daughter, Brattina. During its second season the show was titled "All New Pound Puppies". Written by Jonathan D. Parshall <jdp1981@netscape.net>

Trivia

The Pound Puppies return from the 1985 TV Special of the Same Name. The main difference is that Cooler now has white fur instead of gray fur, Nose Marie sports a southern belle accent, Howler wears a yellow shirt and has a speaking role, and Bright Eyes is younger than her TV special counterpart. Whopper has been introduced as the new member of the Pound Puppies. Barkerville, Louie, Scrounger, and Violet Vanderfeller are absent (Although Barkverville, Scrounger, and Violet Vanderfeller made either cameo or guest starring appearances throughout the TV series).

Crazy Credits

During Season 1's title sequence, the Pound Puppies logo is shown and zooms out. During the same sequence, Cooler, Whopper, Bright Eyes, Nose Marie, and Howler are introduced and they bowed. Whopper is then chased by Katrina and Brattina and inaudibly tells the others that he was chased by a monster. In his thought bubble, the monster is revealed as Catgut and Bright Eyes is scared and runs to Holly. As Katrina, Brattina, and Catgut inch closer, Cooler backs at them and frightens them away. Nose Marie is seen wheeling a bunch of flowers with the Pound Puppies Logo, which irises out to Howler, whose record-like derby irises out to all the Pound Puppies who sang the lyrics to the end of the Pound Puppies theme song.

Good show for the time
9 February 2005 | by paul51See all my reviews

I used to really like this show when I was....well, I was a kid but I was probably too old for cartoons even in 1986. Thankfully, the cartoon wasn't in the just-for-girls vein the toy line was, so I guess I can salvage SOME dignity ;) There's a movie missing from the database, I've noticed. The original Pound Puppies movie, NOT the Legend of Big Paw (which is in the IMDb database). It has most of the characters that were on the TV series, with some differences. Bright Eyes is actually intelligent (and if I'm not mistaken, is voiced by the same talent that provides the voice for "Bratina" in the TV series). Nose Marie is simply called The Nose and has a thick New York accent instead of being a southern belle. And the story takes place at the City Pound instead of the rather benign-looking suburban setting of the TV show.
