Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the main characters in this edgy cartoon, two stray dogs, lampoon Hollywood's most popular celebrities. That means that adult themes like drug use, alcoholism, and anorexia are examined. What's more, stars' body parts (think breasts) and behaviors (think kissing) are exaggerated via animation.
What's the story?
In MTV2's WHERE MY DOGS AT?, stray canines Buddy and Woof keep viewers entertained as they navigate Hollywood's mean streets, where they run into -- and lampoon -- some of pop culture's most recognizable stars. In each episode, the pair (voiced by producer Jeffrey Ross and Saturday Night Live alum Tracey Morgan) work hard to evade their enemy, the Dogcatcher. As a result, they find themselves in completely off-the-wall situations. In one episode, for example, they're hired by Lindsay Lohan to accompany her to a red carpet event promoting animal rights. They later end up at Angelina Jolie's house, where they must entertain her son Maddox, who wants nothing to do with them.
Is it any good?
True celebrity buffs will get a kick out of the "insider jokes" that pepper each episode. Where My Dogs At? is fun, and those who can look beyond the sometimes mean-spirited jokes will find a half-hour of mindless giggles.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the nature of celebrity. If stars have sought out the spotlight, does that mean they're fair game? Why are people so obsessed with the private lives of music, movie, and TV stars?
