Too Cute is an American television series that aired on Animal Planet from April 30, 2011 to December 27, 2014. Once a series of four separate specials in 2011, Too Cute became a series a year later with six episodes in its third season. Reruns of this show air on Discovery Family.

Synopsis[edit]

Each episode tells a "coming of age" story as narrated by Henry Strozier, and features three different groups of animals, mostly cats and dogs, in their first eight to 12 weeks of their lives. The delightful said time period of an animal's life are observed and presented from the first tentative steps that help them get started investigating the new world around them, to the days of playful contact with new creatures and familiar faces. At the end of each episode, an epilogue is shown of the pets that stand out from each litter or animal group. Before cutting to commercial break (⅘ into the show) after explaining what's to come after the break in the same episode, they give the audience a "Too Cute Quiz", where they give a question about one specific breed that the audience has to answer with the correct breed. After the commercial break, they return to the question and give the answer and an explanation about said fact. [2] The beginning of the show also gently spoofs the "viewer discretion advised" warning:

"The following program contains material that is just too cute" [3]

It was announced that Too Cute returned for a third season with new episodes that aired on August 3, 2013. Also, Animal Planet partnered up with the Washington Animal Rescue League[4] to launch the "Too Cute Kitten Cam" for online viewing.[5]

The enhanced version of this series is titled as Too Cute OMG, with added on-screen information about the breeds of all pets featured as well as never before seen footage.
