Apple TV+ have announced ‘Pretzel and the Puppies,’ an upcoming animated series for preschoolers with all eight episodes making their streaming debut on February 11th.
The series which hails from HarperCollins Productions is based on the classic children’s book ‘Pretzel and the Puppies’ from award-winning authors Margret and H.A. Rey, the creators of ‘Curious George,’ with the new original unearthing a new story about a beloved modern dog family consisting of stay-at-home dad - and the world's longest dachshund - Pretzel, his five adorable Dachshund puppies, and mom Greta, the mayor of Muttgomery.
Featuring the voice talents of Emmy Award-nominee Mark Duplass (‘The Morning Show,’ the upcoming ‘Extrapolations’) Nasim Pedrad (‘Saturday Night Live’) and newcomers Milo Stein, Alex Jayne Go, Max Mitchell, Amari McCoy and Gracen Newton, ‘Pretzel and the Puppies’ is the latest addition to an ever expanding lineup of kid friendly content on Apple TV+.
Fun fact: Dachshunds are sometimes called wiener dogs because their long bodies resemble hotdogs. But would you believe that the original name for the hotdog was the Dachshund sausage? The name was later shortened to hotdog.
