Introduction

Teacher's Pet is a gem that was a part of Toon Disney's lineup from the year 2000 all the way to 2002. The show centers around the misadventures of a boy named Leonard Helperman and his dog Spot. Leonard just wants to live an average life but Spot wants to live life as a human boy. Not content to just let his dreams be dreams, Spot follows Leonard to school one day and dresses up in human clothes - fooling everyone around him (save for Leonard) into believing that Spot is indeed a  real boy! Illustrated by the illustrious Gary Baseman, Teacher's Pet ran for two seasons before concluding with a 2004 feature film. Obscure to most folks, the show is revered by a small yet loyal fanbase who enjoyed the series' wacky sense of humor and brilliant animation.

Teacher's Pet Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Well if you're an animal lover, then you'll likely appreciate the way Teacher's Pet depicts creatures of all kinds. Dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and just about any other kind of animal that you can think of are treated with dignity and respect in the series. The animals in the Teacher's Pet world are capable of speech and complex thought, which serves a two-fold purpose; it makes the show that much funnier when pets and companions animals muse about their daily lives and it also depicts animals as thinking, feeling beings. Spot's definitely the most outspoken character in the show, as well as possessing a classic dog name, so you could name your pet after him to show your solidarity with the show.

Another reason you might want to give your dog a Teacher's Pet inspired name would be if you're a Nathan Lane fan. Mr. Lane is a legendary theater actor and was a major collaborator with Disney back during the 1990's and early 2000's - voicing over characters like Timon from The Lion King franchise and Tom Morrow from Disneyland's Tomorrow Land area. In Teacher's Pet, Mr. Lane voices over Spot - providing the dog's regular speaking voice as well as singing all of Spot's musical numbers.
