Bandit the border collie. Feb 14, 2003 - Jun 03, 2017.
Bandit, Yappy Fox's pet dog, was introduced as a cast member during Episode_171. He had a slightly difficult start to life1) and - as evident during the episode - was slightly confused by the ruckus that is the pawpet show but quickly won the hearts of all of the cast and viewers alike.
He was part of almost all of the shows from his debut until Episode_747 which makes him one of the longest cast members of the show.
Bandit - being the dog that he was - usually was known for being cute and chewing up things. More than one puppet met their demise through his teeth. Herbie usually brought along toys for him and the bets were up on how long they'd last. The record was during show? when he had finished the toy within several minutes of the show.
Since he was part of so many shows and chewed so many toys (and cables) he also was part of many an art jam.
