A pack of dogs (and a cat), led by Foofur, who live in the fictional town of Willowby, avoid homelessness by staying at a house that is put up for auction by Mrs. Escrow, who is unaware of the dogs' stay.

The entire series has been released through a series of VHSes released by Celebrity Just For Kids.

Opening theme song lyrics

He's a dog who knows the right thing to do, he's Foofur.
He's the finest dog that I ever knew, he's Foofur.
He's as sturdy as a wall, he will catch you if you fall, he is Foofur.

He's a dog who knows the right thing to say, he's Foofur.
He's the one dog that you can't explain, he's Foofur.
He's the greatest of them all, he makes other dogs look small, he is Foofur!

Although lots of try, they can't get Foofur down...
They never seem to go their way, cause he's the smartest dog in town!
He is Foofur
He is Foofur
He is Foofur!
