The Secret Files of the Spy Dogs is an American children's animated series, produced by Saban Entertainment, that aired on Fox Kids from 1998 to 1999.
Ownership of the series passed to Disney in 2001 when Disney acquired Fox Kids Worldwide, which also includes Saban Entertainment.
The Spy Dogs are a secret organization of dogs that are dedicated to protecting their world, without letting their masters know about their activities. They battle a variety of enemies, including Baron Bone, Catastrophe, and Ernst Stavro Blowfish.
