What It Takes to Make Puppy Bowl a Success

For You

It isn’t all butterflies and rainbows for Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl. Indeed, the TV magic of cuteness overload takes a lot of work.

The two-hour event, which pits Team Ruff against Team Fluff in a game of puppy football, is quite the production. The “event” is actually taped in October, takes three days to film, includes a full crew and tons of camera. The output is 90 hours of film footage that editors whittle down to a neatly packaged 120-minute segment.
