"Katts and Dog" is about the life of Canine Officer Hank Katts and his partner, Rudy; how they fight crime and the forces of evil. The show starts off with Hank just finishing up Police Academy. It goes on to show the first meeting of Katts and Rudy. It also shows the life of Hank's nephew, Stevie; through the death of his mother and his adoption by Officer Katts.Written by
For American audiences, this series was presented as a revival of The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin (1954) and was retitled "Rin Tin Tin: K-9 Cop". All mentions of "Rudy" were dubbed over with "Rinty". See more »
I have been a Rin Tin Tin fan for years. Rin Tin Tin K9 Cop(Katts and Dog was the title outside the US) is a wonderful family show that shows the life of a police officer and his partner, a German Shepherd. Just like the original series the Adventures of Rin Tin Tin , there was action and family values in each episode. The father/son relationship played by Jesse Collins as officer Hank Katts and Andrew Bednarski as his nephew/ adopted son Stevie was believable and realistic. The show took place in a generic metropolitan city. Each week brought new stories and unlike many TV series it didn't go preaching to the viewer. This TV show deserves to be released on DVD to be viewed by a new generation of kids and allow us older fans to relive the enjoyment of a family oriented police show.
