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 looking totally adorable. Score!

DID YOU KNOW? Puppy Bowl fun facts & trivia

• Although the human Super Bowl is played live, the Puppy Bowl is pre-taped in New York over two days in October, then later edited for major game highlights.

• Bunny cheerleaders were first added to the show in 2010, but other cute critters have cheered from the sidelines since then: chickens (2011), piglets (2012) hedgehogs (2013), penguins (2014), dwarf goats (2015), chickens (again, in 2016), rabbits and guinea pigs (2017) and a squad of ducklings, piglets, and bunnies (2018).

• Every year, it's always 'safety first' during filming. Every 30 minutes puppies are given a break from the lights and the 21 cameras that cover the action. A veterinarian is also on hand, together with representatives of the Human Society and each of the shelters whose dogs have been chosen to enter the Puppy Bowl field.

• Of course, when puppies can't wait to go potty "accidents" sometimes happen. So a cleanup crew is always on hand to keep the field pristine during filming.

• 2014 was a landmark year for the Puppy Bowl. A record 13.5 million viewers tuned in, making it the day's second most watched program after the 2014 Super Bowl. The 2014 game also happen to feature an introduction by First Lady Michelle Obama, along with the game's first "Fantasy Puppy League".
