Let the “tailgating” begin! PUPPY BOWL returns to celebrate a very special anniversary in a championship battle for cuteness and barking rights, Sunday, February 2 from 6 – 10 p.m. ET / 3 – 7 p.m. PT on Animal Planet. The cuddly cuteness airs back-to-back for fans that miss any of the action or want a double dose of fun! On game day, 66 rambunctious pups itching to score and show off their signature moves and chews will duke it out for their chance at victory.
This year, Animal Planet has upped the ante with all-new features and guest stars to make PUPPY BOWL X the biggest game ever! To commemorate this PUPPY BOWL milestone, viewers will be treated to new in-game segments and features, including penguin cheerleaders waddling from the sidelines, 30 all-star kittens representing feline pride in a half-time show, special guests “Keyboard Cat” and “Lil BUB,” and much, much more!
It wouldn’t be PUPPY BOWL without Dan Schachner, who returns to call the puppy penalties for his third year as “The Ref.” Sideline reporter “Meep the Bird” is back on his perch to tweet live updates and commentary throughout the big game. Viewers won’t miss a second of the action with PUPPY BOWL favourites such as the water bowl cam, slow motion “Too Cute” cam, kiss-cam, and an aerial view of the field provided by a blimp and its hamster pilots, capturing every furry fumble, touchdown, and penalty. Outside the stadium, canine fans without tickets will claim their spots in the parking lot at a brand new tailgate party.
All of the precious puppies featured in Animal Planet’s PUPPY BOWL come from SPCAs, shelters, and pet rescue centres from across the U.S. Canadians interested in adopting from a shelter in their area can visit petfinder.com for more information.
