Western Animation / Fat Dog Mendoza

Fat Dog Mendoza is an... interesting show that aired on Cartoon Network in the UK about a boy and his dog doing random wacky things. It also has an old granny with an afro, an onion-headed boy, a two-headed teacher, a monkey, and a random super-villain like dude. Yes, really.

Sunbow Entertainment worked on this cartoon, and it is the only cartoon they have worked on that never aired in the United States.


  • Big Eater: Fat Dog.
  • Death by Gluttony: The neverending buffet has several ambulances already parked outside it in the eventuality a customer nearly eats themselves to death trying to finish their meal.
  • Irony: Mrs. Rectangle, who spends her every appearance warning everyone about 'the great flood' that will destroy everything, causes the event herself by forgetting to turn off her taps.
    • Everyone else but her actually realizes the irony and despite the mass destruction cannot help but laugh.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Captain Glen Headstrong.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Little Costume Buddy.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Piranha Mae: "Isn't this something? It's coming right towards us! Oh, I love hanging out with you guys!" while having a missile flying towards her.
  • Snake Oil Salesman: Fat Dog is such a slick salesman that he can literally sell ice to Eskimos. Contrasting with Little Costume Buddy who couldn't sell water to a man dying of thirst in the desert.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: After barely managing to finish a meal at the neverending buffet Fat Dog has grown much fatter.
    • Cruddy once stole and ate all the food in the neighbourhood to both frame Fat Dog and get fat enough that he gets the same respect as the dog does. Only for him and his pet poodle to end up so overweight they can hardly move.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Fat Dog and his hams.
  • Waddling Head: Fat Dog looks like one.
