About this item

Description The main feature in this 15 minute episode is the famous Gala Poochie Quiz. Before conducting the quiz, Gala Poochie’s twin brother, Gala Punchie Pup, arrives to help with the quiz. Silvercup sneaks in an advertisement between segments. The minor character Osgood makes an appearance during the Gala Poochie Quiz to deliver the quiz questions. The show continues with Rootie dressing up as a Native American to sing a song about mittens. Stereotypes emanate in this portion of the show, including an accent by Big Todd in the next Silvercup ad afterwards.
