This gets 26 episodes, yet Poochinski and Dog Police died in the pilot phase.
These kids are not dealing with their father's passing well.

I love the commercials more than the actual show. I'm gonna get some pringles and childrens' tylonol. Then I'm going to the verona jeep eagle.
"LUXURIOUS EAGLE" is my new Native American name. Is that racist?
Once the average USA network line up was made up of "original" series like this and the occasional import from Canada like "Check It Out!" with Don Adams.

I think Dog House WAS a Canadian import. The show aired on YTV in Canada.
This show was mentioned in Mondo Canuck, as part of an article on bad Canadian sitcoms. The book argues that King of Kensington was the only popular, half-decent sitcom Canada ever produced. Granted, Mondo Canuck was written in 1996, before Ken Finkleman discovered the benefits of stealing from Garry Shandling, and other filmmakers he likes.
Surely you're joking, SPK. Discounting animated sitcoms, the USA has given us Malcolm in the Middle, Fresh Prince, and Married... with Children. Also whatever shows Ariana Grande is on.
I thought MWC was Fox. I'm here with the important info.
The Golden Age of sitcoms morphed into a Corrupted Lich Magic Age somewhere around 1989. Small Wonder.
But what about the kids on the losing team? Surely they have families and feelings, too, right? I get that the Blue team will be sad if they forfeit, but I think losing a clean, fair ballgame would be considerably less emotionally derailing than losing a game to a dog possessed by the spirit of a murdered cop.
Also, that's some terrible coaching at 25:50. All you have to do is do your best? But what if his best isn't good enough?! That's ridiculous. I'm all for helping kids with low self-esteem gain confidence, but do it at some OTHER time, please, a time when the fate of the whole season doesn't hang in the balance. There's a lot more riding on this game than the ego of one entitled middle-class white kid; you've got the hopes and dreams of EVERY child on the dream to consider. Timmy is a blue falcon who clearly can't handle the pressure, and he should have been benched.
Also, Timmy wasn't a "hero". He made a suicide bunt, which was a stupid decision considering the base situation, and was only saved by the girly incompetence of the first basemen. And THAT kid, boy, you know he's going to catch some shit for that play. He will be shunned by his peers, forever known as "Butterfingers", and I can almost guarantee you he doesn't have a sorcerous talking dog to help him through the trials ahead. Twenty years from now, he'll probably wind up a divorced, out of work, oxy-addicted, self-loathing closet-case, while Timmy becomes a dull, shallow, vainly materialistic lawyer, working for a mid-scale law firm and driving his own shit kids to little league games in his asshole Lexus for assholes.
Fuck you, Timmy, you jerk.

That's a good review Homer, I wouldn't have thought of all that stuff. Now you have to do TV and movie reviews on your site.. :)
I liked Dog House at the time, I didn't think about it as much as B-TV, I guess there were a lot of silly sitcoms on then. I liked it for the talking Saint Bernard, and he represented someone being or changing into a Dog, and it was no big problem.

That's right, it's not a Disney show, Disney would have tied up a lot of the loose ends, especially in the treatment of everyone. Dog House is a product of its time I guess you could woof.
