2 STUPID DOGS
(Hanna-Barbera 1993 - 1995)
2 Stupid Dogs was a show about a lumbering sheep dog known as Big Dog and his excitable dachshund pal, Little Dog. The two would get ensnared in a variety of commonplace situations, with their stupidity usually leading to calamitous results. A broad-shouldered human named Hollywood appeared on most episodes to antagonize the dogs, uttering his instant catchphrase, “Isn’t that cute… But it’s WROOOONG!!” The show was filled with throwaway one-liners that fans have been bandying about ever since: “It tastes like caca,” “Where’s the food?” “(Monkey to astronaut): I think you’ve been drinking too much Tang,” and Little Dog’s catchphrase, “Ball!”
Created by cartoonist Donovan Cook, the show was a break from Hanna-Barbera’s traditional style, animated more along the lines of Ren and Stimpy than Scooby-Doo. The show also shared Ren and Stimpy’s taste for booger jokes and potty humor mingled into plot-free exercises in unbridled wackiness.
2 Stupid Dogs also brought the return of a character from the Hanna-Barbera archives: Secret Squirrel. Each episode of 2 Stupid Dogs featured a Super Secret Secret Squirrel segment, spoofing the 1960’s spy craze with the title squirrel, his bull superior Chief (Chief was a human in the original series), and his Peter Lorre-inspired assistant Morocco Mole.
2 Stupid Dogs endeared themselves to viewers with their endlessly hilarious stupidity. In one episode, Little Dog tried to use a hand puppet to fool a cat into thinking there was food in another alley. After a brief conversation with his puppet, Little Dog fooled himself instead, calling the puppet a liar when the truth came out.
After two seasons of original episodes in syndication, the show moved to The Cartoon Network.
