Everyone’s favorite puppy friends will be paying homage to everyone’s favorite neighbor in Disney Junior’s “Puppy Dog Pals” newest episode. Join Bingo and Rolly as they go on a mission to find Mr. Kimble’s (voiced by “Hawaii Five-O” star Chi McBride) favorite green sweater. Accompanied by Mr. Kimble’s dog Floyd (voiced by “The Resident” star Malcolm-Jamal Warner), it’s an exciting adventure for everyone—will they find the sweater in time for Mr. Kimble’s next show? 

While the sweater might be green instead of red, and there’s a puppy sidekick instead of puppets, this sweet homage to “Mister Roger’s Neighborhood” shows the resilience and influence the iconic kids’ show has on today’s culture. 

Disney’s Junior’s “Puppy Dog Pals”  “Won’t You Be My Puppy Pal” premieres Friday, Aug. 14 at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW.
