Stewy the Dog Boy is a traditional animation segment created by Dennis Messner, which appeared on the Nickelodeon animated anthology series KaBlam! in the Season 4 episode "Under New Management." The plot is about a dog named Stewy, who wishes to go to school by dressing up as a boy and treated like a human to fit in.
Stewy the Dog Boy was planned to have its own television series on Nickelodeon, but the series was then canceled due to the Disney show Teacher's Pet premiering on ABC around the same time and having a similar story.
