"The Dogfather" was created by Hawley Pratt and Friz Freleng. The series was released through theaters by United Artists and ran from 1974 to 1976. 17 shorts were produced.


The series was basically a parody of the movie, "The Godfather" but with canines as part of the Italian organized crime syndicate. It consists of the Dogfather (voiced by Bob Holt) and his henchmen Pug and Louie (both voiced by Daws Butler).
