Why It Rocks
- Original animation style. It cleverly uses Flash Animation.
- Interesting characters.
- Amazing music score by Daniel Ingram.
- Great morals.
- Good voice acting, especially from Eric McCormack.
- Fascinating plots.
- It manages to use a formula without being too repetitive.
- Funny jokes.
- Squirt is a Chihuahua. He could have just been another Mexican stereotype, but he actually has a New York accent and came from Hoboken.
- Speaking of stereotypes, the episode Hot Dawg had a scene that shows how silly racism is when Squirt says "I'm a Chihuahua!" and Niblet replies, "Why should I believe a word of a Chihuahua?"
- Kath Soucie, Grey DeLisle, and E. G. Daily are overused as puppy voices. And even if they weren't overused, they would still make Anime girls sound ear-pleasing!
- There's Something About Camelia had a twisted moral about trying to be someone else in order to be yourself.
- Niblet, Dot, and McLeish are quite aggravating.
- Some bad episodes like Lucky Gets Adopted.
- Later episodes have toilet humor.
- The first 7 episodes have bad animation.
- It is one of the few Canadian cartoons to have American voice actors, although they were used only because they were popular.
- It is one of the few cartoons to have never seen the change from The Hub to Discovery Family.
