Plot

Wowser is a big white dog who lives with his owner, the Professor. In each episode, Wowser's appetite and the Professor's inventions, along with the interference of their wacky neighbors, results in chaos.

Characters

Wowser (Cubitus in French, Dommel in Japanese, Dutch and Polish, Teodoro in Italian and Kaaboul in Arabic) is the main character. A large white dog, he has a good-natured personality but a humongous appetite.

Professor Dingy (Sémaphore in French, Ron in Japanese and Polish, Semafoor in Dutch, Professore in Italian and Abqarino in Arabic) is Wowser's owner who has a big white moustache and wears a pink sweater. He is a genius inventor, although his eccentric creations usually backfire on him.

Ratso (Sénéchal in French, Blackie in Japanese and Polish, Gatto in Italian and Mushakess in Arabic) is Wowser's rival/sometimes friend. He is an annoying black cat who often sabotages the Professor's inventions.

Linda (Cherry in Japanese and Polish, and Nadine in Arabic; her name is also Linda in Italian version) is a teenager who seems to take quite a fancy to Wowser.

Betrice (Beatrix in Japanese and Polish, Bea in Italian) is a rather bossy woman who is often rude to Wowser.

Officer Whistle is a policeman who keeps a whistle in his mouth which is used to tell people off when there is trouble.
