    This was the start of a legendary cartoon show that ran for 13 glorious episodes. In this episode we meet Professor Shepherd who is put to the test when he passes over plans for his Transdogifier to the series' baddies General Parvo and the Groomer. A year later 2 dogs are sent through Parvos' version which makes them evil criminal "cano-sapiens". Professor Sheperd, now named the Master chose 5 homeless dogs to send through his Transdogifier (which makes them cano-sapiens). Each is also granted a special power and become members of the group called the Road Rovers. The good guys are as follows:

    *Hunter (Retriever Mix): Super Speed

    *Colleen (Collie): Martial arts skills

    *Exile (Siberian Husky): Super Strength (Episode 1), Super Eyes (aka Nightvision, Heat Vision, and Freeze Vision) (Episode 2-13)

    *Blitz (Dobermann Pinscher): Super Bite Strength

    *Shag (Sheep Dog): Super strength (episodes 1, 6, 13), Bravery (originally supposed to be used, but the Transdogifier backfired and he stayed a coward)

    At the end of the episode Master says the dogs have each been adopted by various heads of states: Hunter - USA, Colleen - England, Exile - Russia, Blitz - Germany, Shag - Switzerland.
