    The animation is clunky (about on a par with The Pink Panther); the gags are gross and not even remotely funny.

    It's a perfectly amiable, perfectly inconsequential cartoon show that seems better suited to Saturday mornings. ... The trouble is that this nameless Everydog doesn't talk, or even have many discernible expressions. That puts most of the comic burden on the characters around him, who are a dull lot.

    Style in the absence of wit only emphasizes the cold heartlessness of Family Dog. If I were more of an animal-lover, I'd be offended at the way this poor hound is treated; it's as a cartoon-lover that I'm really annoyed.
