  • show Description
  • Two Stupid Dogs follows the lives of two dogs, the overly excited Little Dog(the dachshund) and easy-paced Big Dog(Brad Garrett from "Til Death" and "Everybody Loves Raymond")-the sheepdog. These crazy canines don't know how to fit in the world, and they definitely don't have any know-how. They often find themselves in commonplace situations (going to the drive-in, walking through the mall, working on the farm), some not so common situations (stuck on a space shuttle, a contestant on a game show, getting mistaken for the prime minister), and even in some familiar situations (Little Red Riding Hood, Noah's Ark, and Hansel and Gretel). But no matter the situation, their stupidity usually leads them to calamitous results. The show also featured various returning characters. Hollywood was a big burly man who is always saying "Well isn't that cute, but it's wrong!". Red as the little girl from the Red Riding Hood story on her way to granny's house. Cubby is the nerdy guy who is very passionate about what ever occupation he works at. And finally Kenny, the neurotic school child who's afraid of everything and is always nervous. Each episode included two 10 minute episodes of 2 Stupid Dogs and one episode of Secret Squirrel shown between the two. 2 Stupid Dogs first aired in September of 1993 and last aired in January of 1995. 2 STUPID DOGS and all related characters and elements are trademarks of Hanna-Barbera. 2 STUPID DOGS is now airing Monday-Friday at 7:30am and a repeat airing at 5:50pm on BOOMERANG (Channel 297 - DirecTV). There are also airings on Saturday and Sunday at 5:30pm that are different from the episodes aired during the week. Start times on Saturdays sometimes vary by 5 to 10 minutes.moreless

      According to an interview, John K. and Donovan Cook were good friends and workers in Spumco for Ren & Stimpy. John gave his opinions about the storyboard done for the Red episodes.

    • The animation of 2 Stupid Dogs is a homage to HB cartoons from the 60s with very limited style. The soundtrack was done in jazz scores by Guy Moon.

    • The show was inspired by Donovan Cook from seeing two stray dogs roaming around his apartment complex. He searched all over Hollywood and made a deal with Hannah Barbera Cartoons to produce it.

    • The Wanger Bangers candy had text that was similar to the font used for previous Craig McCracken shorts No Neck Joe title and the future Power Puff Girls/Dexter's Laboratory shorts TV Puppet Pals title. This is because Craig did character designs for the episode.
