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.

Episode 19 :: The Lightning Rod
7 days ago
In this episode we make some important decisions about our heroes’ main rides. You’ve heard us pin down the Lightning Dogs three distinct vehicles: The large, armored utility vehicle; the Brutus, the small scout; the Fido, and our all-terrain signature vehicle, the Rover - aka the Lightning Rod. The Lightning Rod is almost done, but one key detail remains: what is it like on the inside?
That might sound like a simple enough question, but it becomes a real point of contention as we discuss how characters would interact in our hypothetical animated show, the best way to load in action figures, and other design choices that could drastically affect our final vehicle. Then we take the conversation to the Brutus and Fido - laying groundwork for what they do and don’t do that influences our whole design process going forward.
