About This Show
Who, or what, are The Lightning Dogs? They’re a pack of anthropomorphic dogs from another world, trapped on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Armed with special powers and tearing through the Wasteland in their battle-ready vehicles, they combat the evil Glampire’s minions and keep his vampiric reach from extending to the stars!
It’s an animated adventure series steeped in the glory of 80s and 90s cartoons… Or at least it could be. Nerdy Show conceived this insane premise by accident in the middle of an episode and now we’re on a quest to see how far we can take it – documenting our journey every step of the way in Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast.

Since the onset of Lightning Dogs, we knew that cool as hell, action figure-ready vehicles were essential for this concept to come to life. Our influences draw heavily from Road Warrior rides and the gimmick-packed cartoon tie-ins of the 80s and 90s. Vehicles couldn’t be an afterthought for Lightning Dogs - they needed to be a core component of the series; as iconic as the characters themselves
Enter the resident Lightning Dogs gearhead: Max Acree - a car nerd of the highest order and designer of all our vehicles going forward. In this episode we look over the first round of concept sketches and establish the cartoons, toylines, and fascinating real world car cultures that are going to fuel our character's transportation.
