Puppy Dog Pals DVD Review

Disney; TV-Y; 144 minutes; Walmart

Available today on DVD from Disney Home Entertainment is computer-animated Puppy Dog Pals, featuring twelve exciting 12-minute episodes! There are no special features or bonus extras on the single disc.

Created by Harland Williams, the series features the talented voice-cast of Issac Ryan Brown as Bingo; Sam Lavagnino as Rolly; Harland Williams as Bob; Jessica DiCicco as Hissy; and Tom Kenny as A.R.F.

The series centers on two pug puppy brothers, Bingo and Rolly, who live with their inventor owner, Bob, a robotic dog named A.R.F. (Automatic Doggy Robotic Friend), and a sarcastic purple cat named Hissy. While their owner is home, Bingo and Rolly act like normal puppies, but when he is out of the house, they slip on their collars and go on adventures around the world.

Episodes on the DVD include:

  • Hawaii Pug-Oh - After their owner, Bob, mentions that he would like to feel sand on his toes, Bingo and Rolly travel to Hawaii to get some sand.
  • A.R.F. - Bob creates a robotic dog do clean up after Bingo and Rolly.
  • The French Toast Connection - Bob wants to make french toast, but he's out of bread; so Bingo and Rolly travel to France to get a loaf of bread.
  • Take Me Out To The Pug Game - Bingo and Rolly travel across the city to retrieve Bob's lost baseball.
  • A Pyramid Scheme - After the Great Pyramids disappears into thin air, Bingo and Rolly travel to Egypt to solve the mystery.
  • Special Delivery - Bingo and Rolly go on a mission to delivery a Mother's Day card to Bob's mother.
  • The Go-Long Retriever - Bob creates a self-fetching stick for Bingo and Rolly to play with.
  • Pot O' Pugs - After Bob's laptop crashes, Bingo and Rolly go on a mission to find a pot of gold at the end of rainbow, so Bob can afford to get his laptop fixed.
  • Design-A-Dog - After accidentally tearing apart Bob's favorite childhood toy, Bingo and Rolly travel across town to repair the toy.
  • Ice, Ice Puggy - After Bob runs out of ice for his iced tea, Bingo and Rolly travel to Antarctica to get him some ice.
  • Hissy's Big Day - Hissy is having one of the worst days in her life, so Bingo and Rolly take her on a trip around the city to cheer her up.
  • Go, Dog, Go! - A.R.F. takes Bingo and Rolly on a road trip to the beach, but after his programming malfunctions, he can't find their way back home.

Final Thoughts

Many "newer" animation series go completely under my radar, which is exactly what happened with Puppy Dog Pals. The Disney Junior series debuted last year and this release marks it's first time on DVD, featuring six 22-minute episodes (or twelve 12-minute episodes). The main plot of the series is pretty simple - it centers on two puppies going on adventures while their owner is out of the house. The computer-animation is topnotch. The picture quality is less like a television series and more like a theatrical release.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Puppy Dog Pals. It's a cute, well-written animated series that the entire family can enjoy watching together.
