Pound Puppies: Homeward Pound on DVD

I have been trying to do a Pound Puppies podcast for a while and when I plan a show I like to try and immerse myself in the subject as much as I can. Because of this I have been watching older Pound Puppy stuff, but also the newer stuff, like the just released Pound Puppies: Homeward Pound.

The DVD has 5 puppy-rific episodes and a Learn to Draw Lucky bonus feature to engage a preschool audience. Yes, the new Pound Puppies, much like the ones from my youth, are built for the younger generation and I am very happy they kept that target audience. Will you as an adult be able to take much away from it? Not on the surface, but if you can appreciate a well written show with a sweet message that is well assembled with endearing character, then you will enjoy the show or at at least enjoy sharing it with someone much younger.

Don’t take my work for it though, here is some footage straight from Shout! Factory.

If that is appealing to you, Do yourself a favor (or more likely the younger person in your life) and catch Lucky, Squirt, Cookie and the entire Shelter 17 gang as they find homes for wayward canine cuties. Pick up Pound Puppies: Homeward Pound on DVD.

    I tried watching the new pound puppies series on the hub, but couldn’t friggin stand it. The 80s series was great, but the new series is horrible.

  2. DrNobody says:

    I missed Cooler and the gang while watching this series… Eventually just stopped because it’s Pound Puppies in name only…

    I really enjoy this show.

    Its a good show everyone. Just because its got different characters than the ’80s version doesn’t make it bad.
    Its got many of the same qualities that make another Hub show, “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic” popular.

    People who like “Friendship is Magic” will also like this show.

  4. This show is pretty funny but the animation is a little tough to get past. It’s a good toon to have playing in the background while you’re doing something else. While the My Little Pony toys from the 80’s will always be the best (can’t beat that design) The cartoon is a much better all around toon (especially on the writing front) Great voice acting, clever songs, quality animation (for computer animation anyway) and suprisingly sophisticated humor! ….Not that I would know anything about My Little Pony though…

    I remember when that special aired back in the 80s, the “shoo be doo, shoo shoo be doo” was stuck in my head from then onward.
