Bad Dog is a Canadian cartoon series produced by Saban Entertainment and CineGroupe for the Teletoon and Fox Family networks. The cartoon focused on the Potanski family and their dog Berkeley. The show's gimmick was that, whenever Berkeley was told that he was a bad dog, he would freeze and pretend to be dead until someone told him he was a good dog. This would happen in every episode. It is unknown whether or not the show was inspired by the popular After Dark screensaver "Bad Dog". The two dogs have a similar appearance, and the "Bad Dog" of the show is named Berkeley, a possible reference to Berkeley Systems, the creators of After Dark. The show was paired with another series called Monster Farm.
