Cat With a Blog (Dog with a Blog)
Cat With a Blog is the 21st episode in Season 3 of Dog with a Blog, and the 67th episode overall. It first aired on August 21, 2015 to 2.01 million viewers.
Stan wonders what it would be like to be a cat instead of a dog after accidentally ruining Ellen's new couch.
Why It Rocks
- The characters are more likable than usual, especially whole family, not just Stan and the puppies.
- Ellen and Bennett are likable, since they got a new couch for the whole family to enjoy. Them not knowing Stan was the reason the raccoons got in the house is understandable, since the kids didn’t want them to know Stan did it, and not risk losing their beloved dog.
- The kids, Avery, Tyler, and Chloe are all likable, since they got along better than usual, and also take the blame for Stan so they don’t risk losing their beloved dog.
- Ralph is a likable and hilarious character in this episode, especially when he helps show Stan why being a dog isn’t so bad.
- Stan does feel guilty after what he did and having the kids take the blame for his messes, so he wishes he was a cat and has a dream about it, where his guardian angel, Ralph, shows him what it’s like being the family’s cat.
- This episode is very well written unlike most of the episodes.
- There are some funny moments in the episode, like how the dream Bennett was being played around with by the basketball team, The Harlem Globetrotters, and how the real world Tyler wear the same make-up the dream Tyler did, but the real world Tyler is still his normal self.
- The dream sequence shows why the family needs Stan to be a dog instead of a cat, since Dogs can do more unique things than Cats. It also shows that without him being a dog, besides him and his kittens, the family is an even more unlikable version of themselves:
- Dream Avery goes from an annoying smart, know it all, but occasionally caring girl who deeply cares about Stan and her family, and will do anything for them at times, into an even more annoying punk girl who could care less about anyone or anything and likes to cause trouble.
- Dream Tyler goes from a popular and mean, but occasionally caring boy who deeply cares about Stan and his family, and will do anything for them at times, into an even more popular mean boy, who basically is a punk, and just like dream Avery, he could care less about anyone or anything.
- Dream Bennett goes from an annoying, but occasionally caring father and husband to his family, into a more annoying person, who isn’t really a good man to his family, as he’s more focused on getting the ball from his team, The Harlem Globetrotters.
- Dream Ellen goes from an annoying, but occasionally caring mother and wife to her family, into a more annoying person, who isn’t really a good woman to her family, and she’s more focused on being a TV judge.
- Dream Chloe was the least effected, since she actually shows her kindness very well, like Cinderella. However, she changed from an annoying, but occasionally caring kid who loves her family and Stan very much, will do anything for them at times, and relies on Stan to help herself focus on the real world, into a very nice person, but sadly a person stuck in her own fantasy make believe and can’t snap herself back into the real world.
- Stan, while being a cat in his dream, tries to make the family better, but sadly, couldn’t do much as a cat, and also since he couldn’t talk. Then, he understands that being a dog isn’t so bad after all.
- The Harlem Globetrotters guest appearing in this episode was awesome.
- The ending was very good and heartwarming as Stan woke up from his dream, happy to see his normal life again, and he tells Avery about his dream, and she comforts him, saying they will always care about each other. The family does get their old couch back, with Ellen saying she missed it, and Ralph saying that you sometimes don’t appreciate what you have, until you don’t have it anymore, and him winking at Stan.
The Only Bad Quality
- Stan was a bit unlikable in the beginning as he left the door open, which let the raccoons in and ruined the family’s new couch. But he did regret his mistake, as mentioned above.
