Butch Hartman said that he created the central character and wanted to make a crime-fighting show based on him. Because his previous animated series Danny Phantom already involved superheroes, Hartman decided that he would focus on making Dudley a secret agent. He pitched the show to Nickelodeon as "Get Smart with a dog."
Eric Bauza, who voices Leather Teddy (and Foop on The Fairly OddParents), was originally chosen to the voice Dudley, but the creators didn't feel that he was right for the character, so Jerry Trainor was chosen instead.
The series premiere of T.U.F.F. Puppy drew 3.6 million viewers.
Since the show's premiere, the series has received mixed to mainly positive reviews, has won two Daytime Emmy and Annie Awards, and has garnished its own cult following.
