Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on the children's books by Mick Inkpen, the British cartoon series Kipper was all about a laid-back dog. No matter what the provocation, Kipper (who combined the best elements of child and adult) refused to get his dander up, even though all around him tended to have short fuses. The multi-talented Martin Clunes supplied the voice of the title character. Dealt out in five-minute episodes, Kipper began going the British TV syndication rounds in 1998, and has since been seen in America courtesy of the Nickelodeon cable network.
