When we say “Top 10 Cartoon Dogs” we specifically mean animated. So actually, scrap that…


And so ladies and gentlemen, we are in the awards season and as controversial as ever The Journalix are happy to buck the trend as we release our list of the top 10 animated dogs from the world of TV and cinema! Drum roll, please:

10. Brian Griffin (Family Guy)Brian Griffin, Family Guy

Not your average dog, Brian arrived on our screens swearing, drinking alcohol and as a voice of reason as part of the crazy chaotic Griffin family. Often there to guide Peter through life, he certainly is mans best friend.

09. Dug (Up)

This adventure tale is full of heart but Dug offers light relief, very much bringing a true version of your favourite pet to life. Never has a dog chasing a squirrel been funnier.

08. Santa’s Little Helper (The Simpsons)

Homer vs. Santa's Little Helper fight

Typically that dumb dog that lives at the end of your street but like most things in the Simpsons the weird and wonderfully funny stories bring us closer to the characters and only make us love him more. He’s been lost and found, close to death, replaced and made a star but he’ll still stand smiling when you throw a frisbee at his face – because he just wants cuddles and his chow. Like most of us.

07. Snoopy (Peanuts)


Never speaks a word and he doesn’t have to. Captures the essence of life, with his infectious spirit and desire for food. Sometimes he’s one of the gang, sometimes he’s better than the gang and sometimes, like all dogs, he just wants to be left alone to sleep it off.

06. Snowy (Tintin)

Cute, but very serious about capturing the baddies and rather good at it too! The dog most like his owner from all of the dogs included in this list.

05. Seymour Asses (Futurama)

Only appears in one episode (fleeting cameos elsewhere) but Seymour lives long in the memory for anyone to witness the story. Loyal.

See why here…

04. Scooby Doo

Not Scrappy.

03. Nana (Peter Pan)

Literally running the show for the Darling family, making the beds, tidying up after the children, even distributing medicine. Loved by all, but maybe not all the time…

02. Pluto

So good he had a planet named after him.

01. Pongo and Perdita (101 Dalmations)

Disney win again, these beautiful dogs are not only a match-made-in-heaven but matchmakers, fight for their right (goodbye Cruella) and give back to the world by adopting 84 puppies! Talk about sleepless nights…
