LOS ANGELES – With summer in full swing, The Hub television network, a destination for kids and their families, will present a special “Dog Days of Summer” programming event August 8-14 featuring a week of dog-themed movies, culminating in the return of all-new episodes of one of the network’s most popular series, the animated “Pound Puppies.”
The Hasbro Studios-produced series returns with two new back-to-back, half-hour episodes, Saturday, August 13 (9 a.m -10 a.m. ET), with encore performances Saturday, August 13 (4 p.m – 5 p.m. ET). “Pound Puppies” stars the voice talents of Eric McCormack, Alana Ubach, Michael Rappaport, John DiMaggio and Yvette Nicole Brown. Betty White also stars in the recurring role of the indomitable Agatha McLeish. "Pound Puppies" has consistently been one of The Hub’s best performers and is the network’s top-rated series with Kids 2-11.
The new episodes cap a week of canine comedy August 8-14 as The Hub presents a special week-long, primetime tribute to family-favorite dog-themed movies including 102 Dalmatians ( Monday, August 8, 8 p.m. ET, with encore performances Saturday, August 13, 9 p.m. ET and Sunday, August 14, 6 p.m. ET); Air Bud ( Tuesday, August 9, 8 p.m. ET ); All Dogs Go to Heaven ( Wednesday, August 10, 8 p.m. ET ); and Cats & Dogs ( Thursday, August 11, 8 p.m. ET ).
The Hub Original Series “Pound Puppies” features a team of fearless dogs whose mission is to find homes for puppies in need. Their motto is “A pup for every person and a person for every pup.” The Pound Puppies appear to be “average dogs” keeping the humans who are running Shelter 17 in the dark while helping “dog-kind” find loving families. Once you’re a Pound Puppy, you’re always a Pound Puppy.
