GO, DOG. GO! Season 1 Emphasizes Kindness, Consideration for Young Viewers

By Movieguide® Contributor 

GO, DOG. GO! is an upbeat animated show about Tag Barker and the dogs of Pawston. Instead of walking on all paws, Tag and her pals like to get around in scooters, cars and even blimps. The show’s first season streams on Netflix and is created in collaboration with DreamWorks and WildBrain Studios.

The show is based on the 1961 children’s book by P.D. Eastman and uses a lot of creative license. Tag Barker and her huge family are always bustling about on unique kinds of transportation. Tag’s sister, Cheddar Biscuit, prefers a unicycle, their dad drives a yellow car, their mom drives a blimp and Tag loves her purple scooter. With her best pal Scooch in her sidecar, they zoom across Pawston, looking for ways to help others and have some fun.

Tag and Scooch also want to be race cadets on Pawston’s elite team of race car drivers. The only problem is that there are a few other teams that want to be race cadets, too, including a couple of Tag’s siblings. They have to compete against each other every now and then, but through that, Tag learns to be a good friend and a good sport.

GO, DOG. GO! Season 1 demonstrates good values and a moral worldview. It shows the importance of teamwork, consideration, friendship, patience, listening and encouragement. The show teaches young viewers why it’s important to do what’s right and give credit where it’s due. And even though Tag and her siblings occasionally compete against one another, they do a good job of caring for and loving each other in the end.

GO, DOG. GO! Season 1 doesn’t have any concerning content. Yet, it’s important to note that other seasons do. Lesbian mothers, “Mom and Mommy,” are featured in the first episode of Season 2, for example.

The writing is good for the most part, with lots of dog puns thrown in. It keeps most of the language simple for young viewers. However, each episode features a trio of acapella singers, the Barkapellas, who sing a small line or song. It’s a nice idea, but there isn’t much effort put into their lyrics. Otherwise, the show is bright, engaging and creative.

GO, DOG. GO! Season 1 displays kindness, consideration and other good values. It has a moral, Biblical worldview with no questionable elements whatsoever.
