29 x 30 minute episodes
A Saturday morning cartoon series from Hanna-Barbera whose main characters, the wrinkled anthropomorphic Pound Puppies, were inspired by a popular line of stuffed toys.
Here, the Pound Puppies – Cooler (Dan Gilvezan), Howler (Robert Morse), Whopper (B.J. Ward), Catgut (Frank Welker), Bright Eyes (Nancy Cartwright), and Nose Marie (Ruth Buzzi) – lived at the pound (natch!) but could get out at night through 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 the second season, the series was retitled All New Pound Puppies.
