Pound Puppies :: Commercials
Pound Puppies were designed by Mike Bowling in 1984 and have been in production ever since, changing hands many times (as you can see)! They started out life a series of soft puppies which were adopted when children bought them (just like Cabbage patch Kids). Pound Pur-r-ries were added to the line, and as they grew in popularity, more and more related merchandise was produced including books, animated videos, puzzles and games. Over the years they have been produced by Irwin, Hornby, Tonka, Galoob, Mary Meyer, Jakks Pacific, Mattel and Flair. Every company re-designed the puppies slightly and brought out different lines, Tonka and Galoob being the most prolific. Just to make things even more confusing, Pound Puppies were also produced for different parts of Europe under various names and by various companies (which were all also differently designed).
