In its premise, sort of a canine cross between X-Men and Thunderbirds. The Road Rovers are the ordinary pets of various world leaders (Hunter was adopted by the US President, Colleen is the British Prime Minister's Collie, other characters live with the leaders of Russia, Germany and Switzerland(?!) When humanity or animals are threatened they are summoned by ultra-sonic signal by 'The Master', and step into the 'Transdogmafier' whereupon they are transformed into anthropomorphic characters with various super-powers, and an arsenal of super-vehicles and weapons at their disposal, ready to charge off and confront evil.

Rather oddly, despite apparently very good ratings, Warner cancelled Road Rovers after just one season. There were rumours of a live action version, and of Cartoon Channel picking up the original, but nothing came of either.
For conspiracy nuts: in episode three, Princess Diana and Prince Charles are shown finalising their divorce proceedings when they are attacked by werewolves. On August 30th 1997, WB announces that it will rerun the series final episode 'A Day in the Life', and that it will feature all-new footage. The day after this announcement, Diana dies in a car crash. When the episode screens 6 days later (the day of Diana's funeral), the promised new footage is missing and has never been seen. Diana and Charles disappeared from re-runs of the episode (including this frame) - and of course the episode title is a reference to The Beatles 'A Day in the Life', the first verse of which is about a fatal car accident. Why wasn't Fox Mulder all over this?
