Description

A French dog called ZeFronk hosts a cooking show from his doghouse with his assistant, a songbird named Sue, and his sneaky neighbor cat named Dom that always sneaks away snacks that ZeFronk makes, and each episode ends with ZeFronk chasing Dom around the prep counter, triggering Sue to fly away and come through the iris wipe. The first-season episodes ended with a bonus live-action segment in which a parent and child made the meal featured in the episode, although these segments were later removed due to time constraints.
