All about the Puppy Bowl
First begun in 2005 as an alternative to the action-packed Super Bowl football game, the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet always manages to score high in the ratings.
Today, the Puppy Bowl has become the "other big game" for families across the US, and the centerpiece for afternoon fun for kids of all ages at Super Bowl parties from coast to coast.
What makes the Puppy Bowl so darned cute? Simple. Take dozens of the most beautiful puppies found anywhere, put them through their paces on a faux football gridiron, then let them run around the mock football field looking totally adorable. Score!
Although the human Super Bowl is played live, the Puppy Bowl is pre-taped in New York in November, then later edited for major game highlights that capture the hearts of millions.
