Cartoon Hangover presents, “Rocket Dog”

“Rocket Dog” burst from the mind of Mel Roach with a sulfuric dog-fart. Follow Bob as he desperately tries to woo a girlfriend while his loyal, yet deranged pet, Rocket Dog, presents new challenges at every turn. Bob’s bumbling hipster lifestyle may be a warning, or an invitation, as you see fit.

Rocket Dog, the TV Series

We here at Frederator Studios are very, very pleased to announce our partnership with Melbourne’s Studio Moshi in producing a Rocket Dog series for television under the guidance of creator Mel Roach. Mel’s “Rocket Dog” short has been a big hit on Cartoon Hangover, so let the bidding begin for the rights—nay, privilege!—to distribute the series. Read more about the project here.

Congratulations and thanks, Mel!
