House Detectives/The Backyard Jungle/The Best Doggone Show in the World
The show centers around the Polie Family, who live in teapot-shaped house in a geometric world (Planet Polie) populated by robot-based characters. The stories revolve around the young 6 year old Robot Olie learning life lessons and going on wacky adventures (either real or imaginative) while growing up. These often include his 2 year old younger sister Zowie, his 38 year old inventor father, his 31 year old hard-working mom, his fun-loving 70 year old grandfather Pappy, and his dog named Spot. Although most of the main cast is made up of circular bots, other characters are featured in other shapes, such as Olie’s friend Billy Bevel and his family, who are square-shaped bots from “Planet Cubey”. The show contains a classic Mickey Mouse flow to it, mixed with a little Star Trek. Nearly every object in this world is alive.
