Puppy Bowl IV + Kitteh Half-Time Show

It’s BACK, People. Puppy Bowl IV is tomorrow, Feb 3 at 3PM e/p on Animal Planet with even MORE MAYHEM than ever before. It’s in HD for stunning clarity AND there is a waterbowl cam! Check out the line up.


The redonk Kitteh Half-Time show is also making a return, and promises that battling over toy mouses will make you forget all about Tom Petty. [Thwap thwap thwap] Here is the intro from last year;

Thanks, CSO…



  1. Love the chew toys cooking on the grill. 😀

  2. I SO have to get cable.

  3. snorglepup says:

    I SO want to snorgl the players!

  4. I have one of the puppies!!!
    Abigail!! I snuggle her all the time.


  5. I am so there!

  6. Alright, I’ve watched it…but it’s not like I had to or anything…really… I may not watch it tomorrow…or maybe I will

  7. Juniper Jupiter says:

    YAY!!!! I knew y’all were gonna put this up!!!! Like I said on the deer and kitty pic, MUCH better than the Stuper Bowl!!!

  8. Aww. I wanna go home (where they actually HAVE Animal Planet – I’m too poor) just so I can see the expression on my Dad’s face when I wrench the remote out of his hands to watch the puppies.

    Also: PUPPY TAILGATE PARTY! Why wasn’t I invited?

  9. My sister's cat is a blob says:

    I think the tail gate party is my favorite.

  10. I love, love, love the Puppy Bowl! I look forward to it every year.

  11. berthaslave says:

    Wow, where have I been the last four years? I’m gonna make my friends watch this instead of the game…..

  12. Did you see Finnegan. He’s the puppy I am rooting for. Go puppies go.

  13. o that’s right, thanks for reminding me! This will be my third year watching Puppy Bowl instead of Stupid Bowl.

  14. I can’t wait!!!!

  15. I live for this show. Whoever came up with this idea should get an honorary Ph.D in Cute-ology.
    This year,we are doing our own Puppy Bowl tailgate party. In case someone has already started a betting pool, my money is on the Jack Russells. Go Team Russells!!!!!!!!

  16. Rachel of Cyberia says:

    Game? What game, berthaslave?
    It’s all about the puppehs!

  17. I ALREADY have it set to record. In hi-def, even.

    Puppehs and Kittehs all floofy in wide screen. Eeeee!

    Puppeh Bowl airs like 3 times tomorrow so you can watch it as well as the game and not upset the sports fans.

  18. When I click on the link for the line up I get bupkis! No pic whatsoever! Anyone else?

  19. My best friend is coming over tomorrow to watch Puppy bowl with me! MUST catch the kitty half time show.

    I really need to get the DVDs. Wouldn’t that be the best cure for a bad day? Come home and watch a couple hours of puppies and kitties being cute.

  20. Chef Steph says:

    Very cute, I’ve watched parts of it the last few years. My question is, what are the rules, how does a puppy go about actually winning the puppy bowl?

  21. Mary Ellen says:

    I found a sneak peak at the show on youtube:

    it was shot with a shaky digicam in the control room by one of the puppy owners, haha.

  22. That was really cool! What proud parents!

  23. yankeebird says:

    RED DOG, just came across your video on YouTube as I was looking at Puppy Bowl stuff. Abbigale is adorable! Congrats on getting her to be part of this. 🙂

  24. One of my former colleagues went to work for Discovery – they own Animal Planet and both are produced out of their Silver Spring, MD headquarters. Puppy Bowl was done on a lark (after all, why waste expensive programming competing with the Super Bowl?), and it was completely shocking to them to discover that it was their most-watched show ever (seriously, EVER). It’s also their most popular DVD (did you know you could own Puppy Bowl for yourself for a mere $10? Knowing a good thing when they saw it, of course, they’ll continue to produce it as long as the audience exists.

  25. Thanks Yankeebird!

    She is a pistol! That day they filmed she was all over the place, they had her on the set at least 80% of the time. She does some wacky stuff and got a lot of camera time.

    Thanks again! VOTE ABBI!! MVP

  26. Aw… I finally have Animal Planet, and it’s not on!! Stupid AP in Denmark 😦

  27. Laura Ann says:


  28. Would so much rather watch this than the Super Bowl…

  29. Thanks for reminding me! I tewtelly almost forgot all about the awesomeness of the puppeh bowl! Yay puppies!!

  30. I’m voting like crazy for Abigail! Yay Puppy Bowl!


    BRRRUUUUUUIIIN!!!!!! OMG big big big puppy me want. AAAAA enormous footy paws Agn!

    Thseriously, can I PLEASE just LIE DOWN in the MIDDLE of that FIELD?!?!? I don’t mind the puppy bref. There they gooooooooooooooo…. (*rompitty* *romp* *romp*)

    *splode from the kyoot*


  33. Abigail deserves a cute post of her very own!

  34. nadine ackerson says:

  35. Bridget L. says:

    I have voted for each puppy at least once, but Abby and Bruin are my favs! But they’re all so cute… I just can’t decide! I’ve almost hyperventalated a few times already!

  36. Puppy bowl and kitty halftime..who would want to miss it but FORGET about Tom Petty…I think NOT.

  37. JuliaJellicoe says:

    Proudly watching Puppy Bowl instead of the halftime show for three years.

  38. metsakins says:

    Hubby walks into bedroom.

    Watcha watchin’.

    Puppy bowl.

    puppy bowl, how silly is that! while hubby sits down on bed with big grin and begins to watch.

    announcer says..they have the right fluff!

    and my all time favorite Puppy substitution!

  39. once again they have spoiled the Puppy Bowl for my dogs . . . who would watch it far longer if it had SOUND – the dog sound, not the canned cheering. We wanna hear the BARK! BARK!

  40. Now I know what to say if my husband asks again what I want for Valentine’s Day – a bunny water bowl cam!

  41. I always try to get my household to watch this instead of football but no is excited except me! I can’t even watch it during football commercials ‘cuz they want to watch those too! Grrr…

    So I go watch in the other room 🙂
    Pupppy power

  42. I lost my Sammy, Polar, last year so I totally appreciate seeing they Samoyed pups – THANKS! Puppeh Bowl rules!
