DUG DAYS
PIXAR ANIMATION STUDIOS’ “DUG DAYS”

Cole: Aside from Dug, who is your favorite cartoon dog and why?

Peterson: My favorite dog actually doesn’t talk – it’s Pluto from the Mickey Mouse series. I’ve learned a lot about Pluto when we worked on Dug, so he’s my ultimate favorite.

Collins: I would have to say Lady from “Lady and the Tramp.” We both share a common love for spaghetti and while she is ladylike, she’ll catch that rat if she has to.

Cole: Why should folks watch “Dug Days?”

Collins: “Dug Days” is a fun continuation of “Up.” It will show Carl, Dug, and Russell’s life after they return from their adventure with Dug being silly and getting into different situations – it’s a lot of fun.

Cole: Why is Dug such a captivating character?

Collins: Dug is captivating because he represents all of our dogs – he’s universal. I have a tiny female dog and so much of her behavior is evident in everything Dug does.

Grab a treat with your furry loved one and catch “Dug Days” on Disney+ September 1st, when all five shorts debut.
