T.U.F.F Puppy

10:52 PM Posted by Ashley Parker

The action-packed T.U.F.F. Puppy (11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) centers around Dudley Puppy (voiced by iCarly’s Jerry Trainor), a gung-ho, dim-witted dog who finds himself accidentally thrust into the role of secret agent when he’s recruited by the super-secret, crime-fighting organization, T.U.F.F. (Turbo Undercover Fighting Force). He partners with Kitty Katswell, a feline superspy who is an amazing kung-fu and weapons expert. Naturally, they don’t get along, but together they protect their hometown of Petropolis and the rest of the world against the evil animal organization, D.O.O.M. (Diabolical Order of Mayhem).

In addition to iCarly’s Trainor as Dudley, T.U.F.F. Puppy includes a cast that features Grey DeLisle (The Fairly OddParents) as Kitty Katswell, Jeff Bennett (The Penguins of Madagascar) as Keswick, Daran Norris (The Fairly OddParents) as Chief and Matthew Taylor (Open Season) as Snaptrap. The series was created and is executive produced by Butch Hartman, creator of the Emmy Award-winning The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom. 

In the first half of the T.U.F.F. Puppy premiere, “Purr-fect Partner,” Dudley Puppy is introduced to the super-secret undercover organization Turbo Undercover Fighting Force (T.U.F.F.) and his reluctant new partner, Kitty Katswell. On their latest adventure, the heroic super agents team up to stop Snaptrap, D.O.O.M.’s ill-mannered supreme leader, from enslaving all of the rats in Petropolis. Together, Dudley and Kitty make for quite an imposing crime-fighting duo. In the second half of the premiere, “Doom-mates,” Kitty Katswell’s life is in danger and it’s up to Dudley Puppy to save his crime-fighting sidekick from the villainous Chameleon.
