All Rise...

Judge David Johnson has CatDog-related night terrors on a frequent basis.

Editor's Note

Our review of CatDog: Season One, Part 1, published November 6th, 2011, is also available.

The Charge

Hey. More of this.

The Case

Shout! Factory will not rest until every mid-to-late-'90s Nickelodeon cartoon is released, piece-meal, into the ether. Their latest serving is part one of the second season of this goofy relic, CatDog. Allow me to refresh your memory: CatDog is a terrifying perversion of science, a grotesque fusion of cat and dog into one contiguous specimen. Not surprisingly, this abomination has some psychological problems, which passes as relentless quirkiness. CatDog: Season Two, Part 1 offers ten episodes on two discs.

Disc One
• "Send in the CatDog/ Fishing for Trouble/ Fletch"
• "The Lady is a Shriek / Dog the Mighty"
• "Hail the Great Meow Woof/ Battle of the Bands"
• "Adventures in Greaser Sitting/ The Cat Club/ Cat Diggity Dog"
• "Climb Every CatDog/ Canine Mutiny"

Disc Two
• "Fred the Flying Fish/ CatDog Divided"
• "The Unnatural/ Dog Ate It/ Dopes on Slopes"
• "Spaced Out/ Nine Lives"
• "Dem Bones/ Winslow's Home Videos/ You're Fired"
• "Showdown at Hole 18/ Sneezie Dog"

When I reviewed the previous CatDog release, I came to it with a blank slate. It aired outside of my bandwidth, so I was only familiar with it on the periphery. (Didn't Taco Bell have some CatDog merchandise or am I hallucinating?) This is a goofy show and enjoyable in its off-beat humor and borderline gross-out gags. When I first spooled up the series, I got a pretty healthy kick out of their shenanigans, but like mainlining the kreme from a Krispy Kreme donut, the thrill eventually brought on a rather large headache.

Shout! Factory's DVD set: Iffy standard definition 1.33:1 full frame, Dolby 2.0 stereo, and no extras.

The Verdict

Still ridiculous and kind of twisted, but my CatDog fascination might be over.

Give us your feedback!

Did we give CatDog: Season Two, Part 1 a fair trial? yes / no
