List Rules Vote up the cartoons that primarily feature dogs.

Since the beginning of animation, the best cartoons have been filled with animals rather than humans. It's no wonder that dogs, faithful companions, have become favorites in animated series. Dog cartoons and animated series starring dogs are some of the most prolific animated animal shows. Whether they're funny, educational, cute, crude, sarcastic, or smart, the animated animals of our favorite childhood - and adulthood - TV shows will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The series on this list, all of which feature dogs of one breed or another as the star, were with us during our Saturday mornings in front of the TV and our after-school homework procrastination sessions. So let's rank the top dog cartoons that kept us all company from best to worst.
