Crazy Credits

During Season 2's title sequence, the camera zooms out to a different Pound Puppies logo, this time with Cooler in the logo and Katrina's dog pound in the background. In one scene, The Pound Puppies(With Howler absent) introduce themselves. The scene irises out to another scene where Cooler rescues three puppies and gives them to new owners. In another scene, Katrina, Brattina, and Catgut are looking at a wanted poster they made with the Pound Puppies(Now including Howler) picture in it. Catgut slices the wanted poster and the Pound Puppies come out and are chased by Katrina. Katrina catches them and puts the Pound Puppies in a kennel. The Pound Puppies fall through a trap door and slide down into their headquarters via Pupscalator with Holly waiting for them. At the end of the sequence, the camera then pans up to the same Pound Puppies logo. See more »

Only as an adult, do I get the real humor of this show.

I watched this show as a child and now only as an adult with the knowledge of Joan Crawford's life as Mommie Dearest do I get the humor of this show, with that horrible mother -- Mommie Dearest -- and her horrible child, Bratina! I don't remember anything about the puppies but the sound of Bratina crying, "But Mommie Dearest" still rings in my ears years later. What a riot.
