Positive Role Models
The Super PupZ and Zeta have a very strong bond, and show loyalty and care for one another. Their human friends help them save each other.
Friendship and highlighting the strengths in the differences among the Super PupZ is a central theme of the series. The show's cast largely lacks diversity.
