Though it was created and co-produced by San Francisco-based entertainment company WildBrain, Poochini was not shown in the United States for over two years after its production. The Christmas Tree and Coffee Dog are available (though hard to track down) on video and DVD. Co-produced, and internationally distributed, by Munich-based media group EM.TV,[2] Poochini was based on the award-winning short A Dog Cartoon (1999).

The series had just 26 episodes with the last one airing in the United States on March 1, 2003. It aired in syndication and on The WB 100+ Station Group.

It was directed by Dave Marshall and Dave Thomas. The series was one of the final projects of background artist Maurice Noble, who is credited as design and color consultant.
