EXCLUSIVE: ‘Pound Puppies’ Cast Interviews

http://movieweb.com/tv/pound-puppies/ Michael Rappaport, John Di Maggio, and Alanna Ubach star in this new animated series from The Hub, which returns Saturday morning with all-new episodes "A pup for every person and a person for every pup." That's the motto of the Pound Puppies, a team of fearless dogs whose sworn mission is to find homes for lonely puppies. They only look like regular dogs. In fact, these pooches are dogs of action who match up pups with loving families while they keep the humans at Shelter 17 clueless. Sometimes dogs are dogs' best friend!

The Hub has pulled out all the stops for the return of the Pound Puppies franchise, hiring great writers and voice talent to push this animated series towards excellence. We recently had a chance to catch-up with some of the great actors who are contributing to the series, including Michael Rapaport, John Di Maggio, and Alanna Ubach, just as Pound Puppies gets ready to air two all-new back-to-back episodes this Saturday morning, August 13, at 9:00 am EST (6:00 am PST).
