Shown each year on Super Bowl Sunday, the Puppy Bowl consists of footage of a batch of puppies at play inside a model stadium with commentary on their actions.

The first Puppy Bowl was shown on February 6th, 2005, opposite Super Bowl XXXIX.

The puppies featured in the Puppy Bowl are from shelters.
