This was the greatest Animal Cartoon EVER!
30 December 2001 | by Snistrx83See all my reviews

I admit when I say this is the greatest animal cartoon ever, I pretty much put down Ren and Stimpy, Rocko, and other animal cartoons but I do admit I was watching this Family Dog show every time it came on when I was a kid. I still remember the one episode when the dog's family went out for the night and burgulars came in and stole from the house. The dog didn't really have anyone in the house love him as a pet, except for maybe the sister or the mom I believe. They should try and bring back this show and see how it appeals to the millenium audience. If they do bring it back I would get it on tape because it may never get another chance.
