Dogstar

2011 Runtime:52 x half hour episodes Genre:Adventure/Comedy

Dogstar Series One

After thousands of years of wars, pollution, undrinkable water and silly cartoon shows, humans are forced to leave Earth and move everything and everyone to a new planet: New Earth. But not everything goes to plan and the Dogstar, a giant space ark containing all of the world’s dogs, becomes lost in space. On New Earth, the evil Bob Santino makes his fortune selling canine replacement units, Robogs, and plots to ensure the Dogstar is never found. But the Clark kids desperately miss their real dog, Hobart, and begin a quest through space to find the Dogstar – with Santino in hot pursuit.

Dogstar Series Two

The Clark kids have located the missing Dogstar, returned all the dogs to their owners on a rejuvenated earth, and defeated the evil robotics tycoon Bob Santino – or so they think. A case of mistaken identity on a cosmic scale means that all of Earth’s dogs are once again stowed on the Dogstar and launched into space. The canine-evolved beings from Sirius Two are involved – believing they are launching a rescue operation to free their ‘comrades’. In fact, they are placing Earth’s dogs in more danger than ever. Sadly, this gives Bob Santino the opportunity to rebuild his evil Robog empire, but also provides the brave Clark kids with a second chance to prove just how heroic they can be – if they can only stop arguing.

“It took three years to make Dogstar, but it’s well worth every minute.”
Daily Telegraph

“Dogstar manages a witty script and cheekily thought-provoking dialogue.”
Courier Mail

“The Mambo meets Futurama animation looks fantastic… delivered with attitude and wit.”
Sydney Morning Herald
