Cute Overload :D
Animal Planet PuppyBowl Highlights are UP and you need to see the ‘water bowl cam’, the quarterback retreiver, the flashing lights, the ref vacuuming the field, and the KITTEH HALFTIME SHOW!
Julie J.—it is like Cuteoverload TV! What a good idea!
My boyfriend watched this! I’m sad I missed it! I really want to see the water bowl cam. puppies! kittehs!
I had a really bad day yesterday, and watched this for about 15 minutes sometime last last night or early this morning. Nothing much better for the blues than watching puppies play!!
Well, I can see what I’m gonna be doing for the next quite-a-while. Just watching those Showcase Puppers not stay still was hilarious enough, can’t wait to get to the kitty half-time show. (As a north-of-the-border COer, I didn’t have access to the original yesterday.)
The Kitteh’s were better :P I’m more partial to kittehs….they need a Kitteh Bowl with a puppy halftime show :P
Krys – I’m with you. Puppehs are OK, but KITTEHS RULE!! I loved the orange and white kitteh(s?)in the half time show. I could watch the bowl cam all day.
um…last year i watched this all day. instead of the superbowl lol.
I agree with Krys too! They need a Kitty Bowl! And a link straight to it.
I think I melted during the Keekee Halftime Shooowww….
this was a THOUSAND times better than the superbowl! Thought I must say I was a little disappointed in the Kitteh Halftime Show…
best part of all was the black lab that laid down in the water bowl…
Did any of you peeps watch when that one puppy (a German Shepherd maybe?) was just frantically pawing all the water out of the bowl? I was like, “Dude! Chill!” ;-)
And the one pup who managed to get all four paws in the bowl at once! Squeeee! When it comes out on DVD at the end of the month, I’m getting all three puppy bowls. That way, when I have a bad day at work, I can come home and watch them!
LOL–MC that was hilarious! i think it was Jackson the golden retriever though, near the end? that was so funny, you could tell when they saw the camera under it & wanted to investigate.
This was the most redonkulously perfect idea EVAR. I could watch this 24/7. If I was in the hospital heavily medicated (or not) my recovery woudl go much quicker with this.
holy cow those pups & kitties were hilrious!!!
and how about the brown guy lying in the middle of the puppy bowl mat sleeping the whole time. haha!
I second your emotion, Mistress of Teh Qte™est of all teH Intarwebs!
I also feel less guilty about my threadjack yesterday!
(despite misguidance that prosh kitten halftime was an actual full-on kitteh bowl.)
Do we agree that you can already see personality emerging in pups and kits so young?
UHH OKAY YEAH PURE GENIOUS! BOWL CAM????!?!?
I was wondering where the puppy bowl post was!
Lots of cute moments, but THREE HOURS?! And the “no licensing required” music didn’t help.
Kitten halftime – “Oh we are so NOT going along with this…”
Shameless vid plug:
You know, usually I can’t really follow football, but this sort of makes sense.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You…..I Loved The Half Time Show.
I don’t mean to take sides here, but a kitty bowl, 3 hours in length, just wouldn’t work.
I was bored with a lot of the halftime show because kittens get bored!
Notice all the danglies that were present to attempt to keep them engaged.
Puppies never get bored.
They are up and about and engaged in everything at all times ever!
and then they crash.
Some eating takes place between.
Kittens interacting have definate cute potential but puppies are more likely to pay off again and again and again.
It so IS CO TV!
The puppy carnage! Oh the fuzziness, the round bellehs, the paw pads, the sleepies!
Oh yeah, and oh the bum-sniffing and tail waggin’!
I loved the getting the puppies to sit still for photos. Really funny! I think I’m gonna go watch the rest now.
I have two favoritest moments, both mentioned above. The lab lying across the water bowl, and the lil dog with all 4 feets in the bowl. I did get angry with that ref a couple times! He called personal fouls and gave ’em five yards. I swear I didn’t see any puppy go potty on the field! Hey, ref, ya need glasses?! LOL!
I saw a puppy go potty on the field. I didn’t think it would air, but one of them went wee-wee on the 40 in the fourth quarter.
Three hours of the most boring, ridiculous, time-wasting crap I had ever seen.
And I loved every minute of it!!! OH MY GOD THAT ONE KITTEH THAT WAS ON TOP OF THE PYRAMID SCRATCHING POST MOST OF THE HALFTIME SHOW…YOU ALL KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT…THAT WHITE ONE WITH GRAY TABBY PAINT SPLASHED ON IT!!! WHAT A DIVA!! SHE REMINDED ME OF MY BABY LUCY WHO DIED LAST YEAR AT THE AGE OF 19, AND I ONLY HAD HER FOR 16 SO IT WAS LIKE SEEING HER AS A LITTLE BEBEH LUCY-ETTE!!!!SQUEEEEE!!!I TOTALLY MELTED!!!! AND THEN AND THEN THERE WAS THOSE TWO BLACK KITTEHS THAT LOOKED LIKE MAH FUZZY BUDDY NERMAL WHO’S 12 YEARS BUT STILL ACTS LIKE HE’S 12 MONTHS YOU GUYS SHOULD REALLY SEE HIM…HE’S A SCHWEETHAAT!!! AND THEN AND THEN AND THEN THE BOTH CALICOS (REGULAR AND DILUTE) LOOKED JUST LIKE MY BABY GIRL GENTRY, BUT MY HUSBAND CALLS HER SQUEAKY CUZ WELL,DUH!!! AND THEN AND THEN THE GREY PUFFY KITTEH LOOKS LIKE MY BRAIN-DAMAGED CAT RIZZO WHO WAS ADOPTED WITH GENTRY AND LABELED AS A MULTI CAT BUT WE FOUND OUT IS AN ONLY CAT SO SHE LIVES IN THE BASEMENT…BUT DON’T WORRY CUZ IT’S FURNISHED AND NICE AND WARM AND THERE’S RIZZO HAIR EVERYWHERE, AND SHE’S SITTING ON MY LAP RIGHT NOW AS I TYPE THIS IN MY OFFICE DOWN HERE!!! Uh….where was I…? Oh, yeah…Teh pups were cute, too, but I’m more of a kitteh person!(Nah, really?)
Oh my gooosshhh, I cannot believe they showed this for threee hours! -.- Did anyone watch it the whole time?
I saw the part where the poor stuffed squirrel got dunked in the bowl. Doesn’t that count as a personal foul or something?
Eeeee! I submitted PuppyBowl while I was watching it! I’m so glad Meg posted it.
I think the killer moment for me was BowlCam when the squirrel toy fell in, or when Gypsy the bulldog did the full-field and back run.
I remember a few years back when someone had the idea for Fish TV channel, where they just trained the camera on an aquarium. All I could think of during this was that they need a Puppy TV channel. I’d never watch anything else!
Now, did I see someone say there’s a DVD?
That was the ultimate in cuteness. I couldn’t believe how entertained I was watching. Nothing cuter.. just nothing…I wanted to throw myself into the TV and be tackled by puppehs and kittehs!
propuppy – I’m with you 10000000000%. The puppies NEVER stopped, the kittens barely moved. I could never sit and watch 3 hours of a kitten bowl. Puppies all the way!
1. Lab lying across his water dish
2. Multiple puppies digging in the water dish
3. Squirrel dunking
4. Bulldog Gypsy’s “puppy crazies”
I watched for 2 1/2 hours, and I could’ve watched for at least 2 more… love love looooove
Jupiter–calm down girl!! not only was it on for 3 hours—-they replayed it for a total of 12 hours.
Don’t forget to vote for MVP on the Animal Planet site!
I watched 15 minutes of the Superbowl and the rest of the time watched Puppy Bowl III. I wish this was a series. I saw the 1st and 2nd one too. LOVED IT
wonder if I could get cable for just one day each year?
and who is the creative genius that though of the bowl cam???
Aww, so cute! My favorite player was Larry the vizsla, because he looked so much like Lincoln, my vizsla, when he was a puppeh!
yankeebird, there’s not just one DVD — there are three! I just ordered PuppyBowl I, II and III for $9.95 each from http://shopping.discovery.com/product-64827.html .
(I actually placed two orders; one for I&II and another for III because III doesn’t ship for a few weeks and I couldn’t wait!)
Regarding the Keekee Halftime Shooowww (Thanks, RadiationSkankQ!), I think the end of the show was a disaster. What non-keekee-owning genius at Bissell thought it would be a good idea to blow confetti on the keekees? They looked alternately terrified and pissed.
Or maybe they were just T’d and P’d because they realized that the event was sponsored by that enemy of keekees everywhere: the vacuum cleaner!
When I first saw the confetti, I thought it was feathers. Now THAT would be some kitteh good times. Just as long as no birdzes was hurt.
Jackson was my favorite, he was so fluffy!! and in second, Bomber was a big huge snowball.
Oh, and all time greatest water bowl moment: squirrel dunking. squee!
Sorry, mb…As soon as CO posted this I had to comment on the Keekee halftime show! It was too cute!!! But I have to admit, those pups were adorable, and I loved those Samoyeds and most of the folks agree with me that Jackson the Golden Retriever pup was the best. I just wish they showed a German Shepard, or an Australian Shepard/Heeler, or Siberian Husky, cuz that’s what I grew up with (the first two) and my hubby (the husky pup).
The one thing that bugged the everloving hell out of me tho, and RevWaldo pointed it out, was the music. It was horrid. It also drowned out most of the playful pups’ yaps. And that’s what also bugged me about the Halftime Show. The Barry White/Isaac Hayes-like-wah-wah-petal-wukka-chicka-wukka-chicka porn music. It just sounded dirty, like we were about to see a wardrobe malfunction(yeah, I know, REALLY old cliche) and all you could hear from the kittehs was the occasional squeak and jingle of the toys. No squeaks or mews from the kittehs themselves! :'( So hubby and I just turned down the music. But at least, no laser pens, which I think are dangerous around cats, no matter how careful one is with it(and no confetti cannon blasts 8-0), like last year!
But all in all, we loved the show!!!
What, Juniper Jupiter? They lasered and confetti-cannoned the keekees in Puppy Bowl II?
Vacuum cleaner people really don’t understand keekees.
Well, snorfbat, that’s what Wikipedia wrote(Puppy Bowl 3 is my first Puppy Bowl, and I’m addicted to Wikipedia), and if you check the highlights that CO linked from Puppy Bowl 3, the Halftime show from last year does show laser point red spots here and there you just gotta catch them at the right moment!
I watched this all day and into the night last year and still could not get enough. I have been waiting for this grand day to return ever since. Long live Puppy Bowl, and espesh the Kitteh Kitteh disco halftime!!!
Anybody throw a Puppy Bowl party? We are seriously considering it for next year.
Lil’Jackson the golden is gonna be doing some hard time in prison ’cause he’s killin’ me!
I cannot believe that no one has commented on the genius of the “tail gate” party this year! The pups in their lawn chairs, barking at bad calls, stealing hot dogs off the grill, high-fiving… and FINALLY they have a spot for the chihuahua to participate!
Oh man, when I have a place of my own, the Puppy Bowl party is ON.
My favorite part was when Jackie, the Pommy, barked at the camera. Because I was like, “JACKIE I LOVE YOU!” And it was like she HEARD me. She felt my love for her. Pommies are my favorite everrrr.
missjulied, the tailgate was precious. I want to get my Chi in on the action next year. She’d kick all those puppies butts. But she’s not technically a puppy anymore. :(
Watched almost the whole broadcast of TEH PUPPEH BOWLZ! Kek :D
The bowl cam was fantastic!
I was disappointed by the lone chihuahua on the field…he just stood there like he was stoned…or like Cindy Brady when she went on the quiz show & blanked.
I saw one personal foul at the very end…but they never called it. I thought Jackson was going to roll in it.
Television Exec. #1: So, the Superbowl is cornering something like 80% of the broadcasting market share this weekend…we must analyse the viewer demographic carefully to develop a product which will enable us to remain competetive and retain brand equity…what do our market research focus group team pie-graphs suggest that people like, besides football?
Television Exec. #2: PUPPEEEEEHS!!!
There was a story on radio show This American Life once about a guy who tried to start an all-puppy cable channel. All puppies all the time– no people, no shows, just puppies playing 24/7. But the suits didn’t go for it. Now it’s here:
I don’t know which is crazier… that a Wikipedia page exists for Puppybowl, or that people have taken the time to vandalize the Wikipedia page for Puppybowl.
However, I do know that I will be making a trip to my local Discovery Store soon to see if they have the DVDs.
