Pet Pals (Italian: Cuccioli) is an Italian animated television series. It was created by Sergio Manfio while the Disney cartoonist Giorgio Cavazzano served as art director.[1] Two feature films based on the series were produced: Cuccioli - Il codice di Marco Polo in 2010 and Cuccioli - Il paese del vento in 2014.[2]


The antagonist, Crow Witch, hates the city of Venice, and she wants to drain the Venetian lagoon, but the Pet Pals, an animal team that consists of the six primary protagonists (Holly, a female cat; Moby, a dog; Top Hat, a rabbit; Diva, a female duck; Pio, a frog, and Nameless, a Canary), completely disagree with this idea. Their religions are Catholicism. As The Pet Pals want to fight back the witch's wicked plans, they cannot wait to get started in their most challenging mission to date, which involves finding Marco Polo's Code and saving Venice, even if this means putting their busy lives on hold for a while.
