Dog City

Ace Hart is a private eye in Dog City, where all are dogs and wisecrackers. Every canine pun is used liberally. Often his cases lead him to Bugsy, the Dogfather, and his minions. Meanwhile, he discusses his cases and all manner of cartoon cliches with Elliott, his creator in the real world. Ace regularly finds himself yanked between divergent storylines and impossibly convenient plot threads.

Character Bio

Eliot Shag photo
Eliot Shag is the star of Dog City, the animated/puppetry spin-off of the eponymous special. A bespectacled animator, Eliot wrote, drew, and animated the adventures of detective Ace Hart, striving to turn out each week's episode amidst distractions from friends, neighbors, and interlopers, which provided inspiration for his cartoons.

A German shepherd in breed, Eliot lives alone in his apartment; his good neighbour Artie Springer is Eliot's biggest admirer, and Eliot strikes up a relationship with Artie's mother, Terri Springer, after girlfriend Colleen Barker leaves. Eliot typically interacted and argued with Ace, in a manner reminiscent of the Chuck Jones' animated short Duck Amuck.

In "In Your Dreams," Eliot falls asleep at the drawing board and re-appears in cartoon form. The episode also features a cartoon appearance by Eliot's mum, asking him why he doesn't "settle down and have a litter."


Eliot's puppet was essentially reworked from Ace Yu, the protagonist of the Dog City special (and inspiration for Ace Hart), also played by Kevin Clash. For the first season, the character wore a striped shirt beneath a sweater, but later adopted an open Hawaiian shirt over a blue t-shirt.

Eliot is a Live-Hand Muppet, and the only one used regularly on the series. Don Reardon assisted with the right hand.
