What kind of dogs are Bingo and Rolly?

Bingo and Rolly are a couple of pugs. Bingo is the greyish blackish one, and Rolly is the tanish brownish one.

They also have several friends and shit from around the neighborhood. They include such characters as:

  • Hissy – A purple ass cat;
  • Dallie – A Dalmatian that stereotypically works at a firehouse;
  • Cupcake – A purple shit-kicker dog that is fittingly the antagonist because she is dealing with low self-esteem due to her size and purple color;
  • Lollie – The undetermined breed that has its back legs up in a wheelchair;
  • A.R.F. (Auto-Doggy Robotic Friend) – Their robot friend that pretty much takes them everywhere they want to go;
  • Edge: Puppy Dog Pals, because your kid will have far fewer options to beg for while riding down the isles of Target.

    Every single episode of both shows involves dogs lending their assistance to solve a problem for someone else. They do so with a cheerful spirit, which is something both toddlers and their parents do well to emulate. Where Pals excels is that the adventures of Bingo and Rolly take place on all corners of the globe. They don’t always travel far and wide, but when they hit the road, they are able to teach lessons about different cultures and geographic traits. Added educational value is always a plus.

    Few things go together better than puppies and small children. They make an adorable pair. Perhaps it explains why both Nickelodeon Jr. and Disney Jr. have successful cartoons geared toward toddlers that feature puppies. Puppy Dog Pals and Paw Patrol are the go-to escape when our toddler calls it a day, so I’ve had the opportunity to watch every episode from each series numerous times. So many times. As such, I’ve had plenty of time to examine the different aspects of both cartoons ⏤ from the animation and character development to the plot, music, and even merchandise. And what I’ve learned is that while all dogs may go to heaven, not all dog cartoons are created equal. But which one is best in show? Here’s how they stack up against each other.

    The flavor of doggy techno employed by Puppy Dog Pals is particularly offensive. A heavy utilization of synthesized bark samples creates an egregious earworm that masquerades as a theme song, and it should have never seen the light of day. Thirty seconds of a dissonant dog howling to start each episode would be considered an improvement.

    The fact that I am so excited about a new Disney Junior show arriving might be embarrassing if I didn’t have children. But, Puppy Dog Pals is one of those new shows everyone should be excited about!

    A show about two cute puppy brothers, with a fun older sister kitty, is grounds for many episodes full of sweet fun. We were able to watch the first two episodes of Puppy Dog Pals during our Disney/Pixar junket, and it was almost too adorable for words.
