It was one of the bleakest Nicktoons, being a SadistShow set in a CrapsackWorld. As a result, most people familiar with the show either [[LoveItOrHateIt liked or disliked it]], and it became one of Nick's most polarizing programs. Nevertheless, it does have a decent following. Ditto WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig, which came on television 15 years after [=CatDog=] premiered.

Perhaps [=CatDog=]'s most important contribution to the world of animation was its storyboard artist Dan Povenmire, who would later team up with Jeff "Swampy" Marsh to create his own cartoon, ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' as well as voice the character Dr. Doofenshmirtz on that show.

** Since Dog often plays TheFool and a frequent KarmaHoudini he is on occasion genuinely [[ThrowTheDogABone thrown a bone]] (usually at Cat's expense). That or he is [[ThePollyanna merely too blissfully inept to see the bad side of things]].

* CatsAreMean: Cat serves as a minor example, as he is more a greedy and self-centered jerk than cruel or vicious. He's even had his own moments of kindness and generosity. The cats of the Cat club however play this straight to a frightening degree.

The story revolved around [=CatDog=], two conjoined twins [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who were a cat and a dog respectively]]. Cat was the sophisticated one, being into things such as the Opera and cleanliness. Dog, on the other hand, was much more laid back than his brother and enjoyed going on adventures and eating. The episodes revolved around Cat and Dog's daily adventures of living with each other and trying to avoid harassment from a gang of three dogs named the Greaser Dogs and their neighbor (who lives in one of the walls of their home) Winslow, a blue mouse.
