Bad Dog is a Canadian animated series produced by Saban Entertainment and CinéGroupe for the Teletoon and Fox Family Channel networks, first airing on Teletoon on March 1, 1999.[1] 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.

The show was inspired by the After Dark screensaver "Bad Dog". The two dogs have a similar appearance, and the "Bad Dog" of the show is named Berkeley, a likely reference to Berkeley Systems, the creators of After Dark.[2] The show was paired with another series called Monster Farm.
