Dug Days Review: Familiar Voices and New Adventures in Pixar’s Heartwarming New Shorts

“Dug Days” follows the adventures of Up’s Carl and Dug as they move to a new house in the suburbs. The latest exclusive series from Pixar comes in five shorts, debuting all at once this Wednesday, 1st September.

Voiced by Pixar favourites Ed Asner as Carl and Bob Peterson as Dug, the series is also written and directed by Peterson. Each short has a simple premise – to remind us that Dug is, in fact, a very good boy. Each episode covers a single day, and features plenty of squirrel chasing, and showing the world from Dug’s unique perspective.

It’s the kind of show that dog lovers will understand; watching it, they will see their dog’s personality in Dug. He’s endearing and full of character, a genuinly good soul who, like all dogs, is pure of heart. This is the first time Dug has been out of Paradise Falls, so everything is new to him, and he’s excited about it all.

As well as being perfect for dog lovers, anyone who enjoyed Up will love the growing bond between Carl and Dug as they settle into their new home away from Paradise Falls. Any dog owner will tell you; they’ve all imagined what their dogs would be saying if they had a voice; well, Dug can talk through a specially designed collar that translates his thoughts into speech. So we get to hear Dug’s thoughts on fireworks, thunderstorms, puppies and, of course, squirrels.

‘Dug Days’ is fun, charming and has plenty of Pixar magic to keep you wanting more. Each episode, although short, has plenty of sweet, funny moments. You’ll love seeing Carl and Dug again as they explore life in their new home. If you weren’t a dog lover before seeing Dug Days, you definitely will be after!
