CatDog is an American animated television series created for Nickelodeon by Peter Hannan. The series depicts the life of conjoined brothers, with one half being a cat and the other a dog. Nickelodeon produced the series from Burbank, California. The first episode aired on April 4, 1998, following the 1998 Kids' Choice Awards, before the show officially premiered in October that year. The Season 2 episode "Fetch" was also shown in theaters with The Rugrats Movie before airing on TV.

The series was canceled on June 15, 2005, making it air four seasons and 68 episodes over 7 years. The series was produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio and Peter Hannan Productions and has been released on DVD in Region 1 by Shout! Factory.

Both animation studios Saerom Animation, through Watchview Studio, and Rough Draft Studios, through Rough Draft Korea, made the animation.

Premise

The series revolves around Cat and Dog, a conjoined twin hybrid of a cat and a dog who share the same body with no tail or hind legs. Although they are best friends and brothers, they have very different personalities, similar to The Odd Couple and the original Looney Tunes shorts, mixed with elements of Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello and fellow Nicktoon Ren and Stimpy.

Cat is very cultured while Dog is very fun-loving and enjoys chasing garbage trucks, cars, and exploring many things Cat does not want to be involved with. Dog enjoys eating at fast food restaurants (such as Taco Depot), whereas Cat does not. The series takes place in Nearburg, a town dominated by anthropomorphic animals and the occasional humanoid.
