Bad Dog is a short-lived animated cartoon that aired on ABC and Teletoon during 1998. The cartoon focuses on the Potanski family and their dog Berkeley. The show's gimmick was that whenever Berkeley was told that he was a bad dog, he would freeze and pretend to be dead until someone told him he was a good dog. This would happen every episode.

    Bad Dog received extremely poor ratings and was cancelled after a single season. In spite of this, Fox Family reran Bad Dog briefly in 1999.
