Western Animation / Beethoven: The Animated Series

The animated Spin-Off of the 1992 film featuring a St. Bernard as its title character. In the animated series, Beethoven could speak, but only to his fellow canine friends, who were exclusive to the series. Also, there was a Guinea pig named Mr. Huggs who wasn't in the movie.

Developed for television by the creators of Recess. A total of 26 episodes were released between 1994 and 1995.

Tropes found in the cartoon series:

  • Fragile Speedster - Sparky is the fastest of the main five but gets beat up by a cat.
  • Off Model: all over the place. But the worst case is with Ryce, who constantly switches from five-fingered hands to the standard four-fingered ones everyone else has.
