The Howling Inferno

  • It's time to call Action Dogs! The world is in deadly danger and only one team of heroes can save it... Six daredevil dogs who fight crime with their bare paws - and their high-tech gadgets.
  • An action-packed new series you'd be barking mad to miss!

Great balls of fire! While the city museum is in flames, kitty crime lord Katmanchew plans to get his claws on the world-famous Bona Lisa painting. But he might have bitten off more than he can chew. The Action Dogs are no slow-witted strays — they're hot and they are on his tail!
