Basically, Puppy Bowl features a slew of adorable (and adoptable!) puppies playing hard in a model stadium — with commentary. Check out the video below to see what you can expect from Puppy Bowl VIII:
Making this year extra special, Puppy Bowl will unveil its new puppy-cams! So it’s like you are there! Right there with the puppy!
Unfortunately, there is no audience permitted to the tapings. Instead, canned laughter and jazz music is added post-production. The filming usually takes about 12 hours a day for three days. Last year involved 47 puppies. That’s a lot of cute, Lovelies.
The first four installments measured 180 minutes each, but now the show runs a solid two hours, to keep things lively. Included among the lively elements is the Kitty Half-Time show — which sounds infinitely better than anyone’s nip-slip.
Meet the starting line-up in the gallery and be sure to tune into Animal Planet February 5 at 3 p.m. Eastern to catch the fun!
Do you ever watch Puppy Bowl? Will you this year? Would you rank this as more awesome than the Super Bowl? Are you a puppy fan? Who, among the starting line-up do you really think will bring home the Beggin? (I vote Fonzie!)
