Puppy in My Pocket: Adventures in Pocketville (Italian: "Cuccioli Cerca Amici: Nel Regno di Pocketville"note ) is an animated TV series based on the popular toys. It features tiny puppy adventures as Flo (Kate in the English version) and her puppy Magic must help the puppies of Pocketville make their way to children in the real world and try to get Princess Ava (Amy in the original), who was beamed to the real world by her sister, Eva (Yma), back into Pocketville.

The English dub was directed by Mark Hanna, who also provides the voice for Magic. This show was produced at Cinecittà film studios located in Rome, Italy. It is produced by Giochi Preziosi, MEG Entertainment Groupnote , and Mondo TV. The series premiered on Boomerang in the United States on January 2, 2012. As of this writing it can also be seen online on the Popcornflix website, and on Mondo TV's Mondo World and "L'Angolo delle Ragazze" ("Girls' Corner") YouTube pages.


This Show Provides Examples of:

  • Cat Stereotype: The Siamese stereotype is played straight with Yma (Eva), but averted with Princess Amy (Ava).
  • Creepy Crows: Villainess Eva has a crow named Krakia as a henchwoman.
  • Cute Kitten: When the terrible animation doesn't get in the way.
  • Dog Stereotype: Magic (original name, Oristarfo) is a protagonistic German Shepard. Also, Zull the Rottweiler and Gort the pitbull are sidekicks to the main villain, Yma.

  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: There are people who draw parallels to Polly Pocket and Littlest Pet Shop (appropriately enough, seeing as all three toy lines were big at around the same time).
  • Dub Name Change: One of two English dubs did this - changing Flo to Kate, for example.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: The animals pictured with Kate. Ava is female and Magic is male.
  • Fun Size: All the native inhabitants of Pocketville are tiny cute animals including dogs, cats, and chickens.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Between Ava and Eva.
  • Informed Flaw: Ava being sent away by Eva is treated as a horrible event that must be fixed. Despite this, everybody in Pocketville seems to be doing just okay, considering their princess is missing and her Evil Twin is rapidly gaining power.
  • Two Shorts: Originally produced as a 15-minute series, this is how it aired on TV in the United States.
