Battle of the Breeds (abbreviated as BOTB) is an object show created by RangoAnimations. The show is hosted by Pawprint (Everyone calls him Paw) and his assistant, TV. The show features 20 anthropomorphic characters which included 16 objects along with 4 anthropomorphic dogs battling to win a prize of $100,000,000. The show premiered on January 29, 2017. The first 6 episodes were animated with Microsoft Powerpoint and the show is currently animated with Adobe Animate (episode 7 - present)


BOTB has examples of:

  • A Dog Named "Dog": Everyone on the show who isn't an animal is named after the object they resemble
  • Animate Inanimate Object: Everyone (sans Cookie, Max, Rango and Ryan) are living objects.
  • Art Evolution: The show had a major upgrade in the 7th episode
  • Anthropomorphic Food: In this show we have AJ, Carrot and Pudding
  • Anyone Can Die: Most of the contestants have died once
  • April Fools' Day: The joke 8th episode which has suckish animation
  • Armless Biped: Battery, Pencil Top and Ruler are the only ones that fall into this trope.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Most of the characters are this.
  • Darker and Edgier: The fourth and especially the fifth episode. It was so edgy the creator resents making these episodes. However it went back to comedic in the sixth.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In the original pilot for the show (created in 2016), Paw had a brother named Blue Paw who served as the co-host for the series. When the show was rebooted in 2017, he was taken out and replaced with TV.

  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Averted Female characters look no different to male characters because they have no eyelashes
  • Valley Girl: Nail Polish

  • Voted Off the Island: Viewers get to vote off the contestants.
  • Where the Hell Is Springfield?: The show takes place in a land called "Plateushire" however there are references to real world such as Cookie being Canadian
