* JerkassHasAPoint: Her obvious hatred of dogs aside, Katrina's initial complaints in "How to Found a Pound" are actually quite valid. The constant barking of several dozen dogs would be quite intolerable for any neighbors, along with the potential odor if the dogs' owner can't keep up. That many animals in a private residence isn't exactly a good thing.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The dognappers in the '85 special, when they [[spoiler: decide it's easier to just wait at Violet's place for her to return home rather than try and track her down.]]

* PoundsAreAnimalPrisons: In the second season where Katrina owns it. In the episode "Cooler Come Home" the pound Cooler gets taken to has this kind of feel to it. Also in the original special.

** Also, the shows like to use "puppy" to describe a dog regardless of age. For example, the millennia-old Big Paw is just a "lonely puppy without a home", and the mother "puppy" gives birth to a litter of actual puppies. Don't think about that too hard.

The premise was then retooled once more for the 1988 movie ''Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw'', before disappearing completely, followed by the toy line in 1990, although that made an unexpected reappearance in 2007.

The premise was then retooled once more for the 1988 movie ''Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw'', ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppiesAndTheLegendOfBigPaw'', before disappearing completely, followed by the toy line in 1990, although that made an unexpected reappearance in 2007.



----
!!The 1988 movie contains examples of:
* BigDamnMovie
* CanisMajor: Big Paw.
* CaptainObvious: Cooler all throughout the movie.
-->'''Cooler:''' That's it! Saying "I love you" changes them back to normal!
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: Reflex's reflexive reaction to the ringing of a bell]].
** A smaller one, but [=McNasty=]'s cat allergy.
* ConveyorBeltOfDoom: An IdiotBall induced one.
* DancePartyEnding
* TheFifties
* FramingDevice: The main story which takes place in 1950's is told in [[TheEighties the present]] by grown-up Whopper.
* GenerationXerox: The two living members of the [=McNasty=] clan we see have the exact same character design, pointy teeth, and voice. And, judging by the portraits in the [=McNasty=] manor, this applies to everyone in that bloodline regardless of gender.
* GentleGiant: Big Paw once again.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: [[FreezeFrameBonus In the background of the mansion]], you can see a statue of a [[NippleAndDimed completely]] [[FullFrontalAssault naked]] woman with a seductive smirk. The (male) paintings around her look extremely scandalized.
** This trope and HaveAGayOldTime are both noticeably averted by the Pound Purries, when you think about what the more obvious alliterative name for the cats could have been...
* LogicalFallacies: [=McNasty=] thinks he can be King because he's got Puppy Power.
** To clarify, nothing about him changes when he's got the bone that gives Puppy Power, he just says he's king of the world and gives himself a crown.
** Additionally, he's clearly in the States, there's no throne to usurp even if this plan made any sense.
** It's glossed over, but he says he wants to take over the world by using an army of vicious attack dogs. Which is an okay plan, but his Mean Machine doesn't need Puppy Power to work, and holding the bone doesn't give him any control over animals, so why did he want to steal the bone again?
*** He has the artifact which enables Puppy Power, which in the movie has existed for centuries, so he's holding a key component of civilization. Presumably he's treating it like Excalibur, with which the bone was found with in the past.
* MacGuffin: The [[JustForPun Bone of Scone]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: The best way one can tell that [=McNasty=] is up to no good is the fact that he's the only human character with razor sharp teeth.
* ObviouslyEvil: His name is [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast McNasty]] and he looks like the lovechild of [[Film/{{Nosferatu}} Renfield]] and [[Film/BatmanReturns the Penguin]]? [[SarcasmMode Nah, nothing suspicious about him!]]
* OffModel: Aside from changes made to the character designs, there is a particularly noticeable animation error in which Cooler's nose disappears from his face. WordOfGod confirms that the film's animation was done in only six months and with little preparation. Which could help explain the rather sub-par quality.
* [[TheyWastedaPerfectlyGoodCharacter They Wasted a Perfectly Good Actor]]: George Rose ([=McNasty's=] voice) can actually sing very well, making his atonal yelling in "the King of Everything" odd.
* PowerOfLove: The victims of The Mean Machine can be literally cured by hearing "I love you" alone.
* ScoobyDoobyDoors: Used during the museum chase sequence.
* SissyVillain: [=McNasty=].
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Lumpy and Bones.
* VillainSong: 'The King of Everything'. Not a very good one, but a villain song nonetheless.
