What’s better than watching cute dog videos? – A great series with smart and brave four-legged friends, of course. And so that you don’t have to dig through the whole jungle series (there are many movie dogs), I’m going to take you for a walk through the colorful world of series with the best dogs. heel!
Scooby-Doo from “Scooby-Doo”
“Scooby Dooby-Doo, where are you? We have some work to do now.” – Here it is again, the call for a new adventure (the stranger always on Saturday mornings). Talking Great Dane Scooby-Doo and the four detectives Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy are already on their way in their truck, the Mystery Machine. And each time a new mystery had to be solved about the ghostly apparitions. However, in the shadows, it was not a supernatural phenomenon that usually lurked, but criminals or people who wanted to hide their machinations behind a ghost facade. And who, if not an animated Scooby-Doo, can tell the difference between fact and fiction with his nose.
Direwolves from “Game of Thrones”
Admittedly, in “Game of Thrones” there are hardly any famous dogs, but there is the wolf – the coat of arms of what may be the most famous house in the series. House Stark of Winterfell logo features a gray wolf on a white background. Not surprisingly, in the first few episodes, each of Ned Stark’s six children takes on an orphaned Deerwolf pup. This is how the sometimes cute and sometimes very dangerous four-legged friends protect the Starks – even with their lives (Ned would have taken one himself). So when it comes to bravery, strength, and loyalty, wolves outsmart all the other characters in the series.
Eddie & Ace from Jim Henson Dog City
As a kid in the ’90s, you may still know the “Dog City” series, or else you as a dog fan have to catch up right away. Dog City is home to animator Eliot, who, like most of the town’s characters, is also a dog. In his dark office, he works on an animated series about private investigator Ice Hart. Together with Police Chief Rosie and newspaper boy Eddie, they discover crimes and hunt down fraudsters. While author Elliot is portrayed with dolls in the style of Jim Henson (Sesame Street, The Puppet Show), Ace has the full color palette of the animated series world. However, they both talk to each other in “Dog City” and thus develop the consequences together.
Brian from “Family Guy”
Talking dogs on TV shows are great. And who knows, maybe dogs are actually more complex than some people — like Brian Griffin from Family Guy. Not only is he above average in intelligence and speaks a much better language than the rest of the family, he also has a penchant for opera and jazz. It’s almost tragic that his animal instincts sometimes get in the way. The contrast is especially stark when he suddenly shouts at African Americans, but immediately apologizes shamefully and points out his father from the South. Because in the series he is the prime example of a liberal, cosmopolitan character – and that as a dog.
Brandy from the movie “After Life”
Local journalist Tony (Ricky Jervis) had to painfully experience in After Life that not only can dogs’ lives be short. After his wife Lisa died of breast cancer, he lost his foot in life. He goes so far as to want to take his life in the shared apartment. But when he looks into the eyes of his dog Brandy, he doesn’t have the heart to leave her alone. Even if he keeps going back to the happy past while watching old Lisa videos, he also acknowledges the present. Although he tries to keep his fellow local Tambury Gazette and his fellow humans at bay with his black humor and ruthless manner, he still feels he can still make a difference – also thanks to his dog Brandy’s loyal deep brown eyes.
