Apple TV+ Releases ‘Pretzel and the Puppies’ Official Trailer and Art

All-new CG animated series, based on the popular kids’ book by the creators of ‘Curious George,’ follows a modern-day dog family led by stay-at-home dad named Pretzel; show hits the streamer February 11.

Apple TV+ keeps on growing its top slate of kids and family shows with an all-new 3D/CG animated preschool series, Pretzel and the Puppies, premiering Friday, February 11. Based on the beloved canine from the classic book “Pretzel” by award-winning authors Margret and H.A. Rey, creators of “Curious George,” the original series features a story about the modern dog family led by stay-at-home dad Pretzel, his five adorable Dachshund puppies, and mom Greta, the mayor of Muttgomery.

When your dad is the “world’s longest dachshund,” it puts a whole new twist on growing up! The eight episodes follow Pretzel, Greta, and the puppies, in their hometown of Muttgomery. They are a modern and unique family who are always sniffing out ways to “Make Their Bark,” and make the world a better place for their four-legged friends and neighbors. Pretzel and Greta encourage their pups to try to solve their own problems, often reminding them to “Get those PAWS UP!” when they face a challenge.

The show features the voice talents of Emmy award-nominee Mark Duplass (The Morning Show) as Pretzel; Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) as Greta; and newcomers Milo Stein; Alex Jayne Go; Max Mitchell; Amari McCoy; and Gracen Newton.

Pretzel and the Puppies is executive produced by HarperCollins Productions head Caroline Fraser, and House of Cool, Ricardo Curtis and Wes Lui. The co-executive producer and showrunner is Steve Altiere (Dinotrux, Dragons: Rescue Riders). Jennifer Contrucci of HarperCollins Productions is also co-executive producer. The animation studio responsible for design and story is House of Cool (Despicable Me, Trollhunters); the animation studio responsible for CG is Saturday Animation (Mighty Mike, Zafari).
