Cancel culture mob brands Paw Patrol ‘copaganda’ which ‘indoctrinates children into a pro-police stance’

  • Paw Patrol team facing wrath of woke brigade and show branded ‘copaganda’ 
  • Critics claim the hit animated children’s show shows the police in a positive light
  • Cartoon’s detractors say Chase, a German shepherd police officer, is portrayed as being more valiant than the other characters


They are the intrepid canine rescuers with an inexhaustible ability to solve even the trickiest of problems.

But now the Paw Patrol team are facing one of their toughest situations yet: the wrath of the woke brigade.

Critics of a new big-screen version of the hit animated children’s show have branded it ‘copaganda’ for showing the police in a positive light.

In one of the more bizarre social media controversies, the cartoon’s detractors say Chase, a German shepherd police officer, is portrayed as being more valiant than the other characters.

In one post, a furious critic wrote: ‘Paw Patrol is absolutely copaganda and the fact that they centre Chase as the star is meant to indoctrinate children early in a pro-police stance.’

Another fumed on Twitter: ‘Pretty much all of the rescues that happened could be handled by Marshall (fire dept dog) and Skye (air rescue dog) – yet they centred the movie around Chase (the police dog) being the hero.’

Meanwhile, a scene in the film in which Chase says he suffers post-traumatic stress disorder has been accused of encouraging children to believe police are empathetic.

It is not the only criticism to be levelled at the U-certificate movie from those on the Left.

In its review, The Guardian suggested it was ‘authoritarian neoliberal propaganda’ and criticised its ‘patriarchal gender performance’ as most of the animated puppies are male. Only one of the six original dogs – Skye, a cockapoo helicopter pilot – is female.

The rest of the patrol – motto: ‘No job is too big, no pup is too small’ – comprises Marshall, a dalmatian firefighter; Rubble, a bulldog construction worker; Rocky, a mongrel who drives a recycling truck; and Zuma, a labrador who travels on a hovercraft.

The series was created in 2013 by British TV writer Keith Chapman, the man behind Bob The Builder, and has been named one of the top ten children’s TV programmes of all time in a poll.

Those who made the ‘copaganda’ claims could cite research which show Chase has been the ‘first responder’ 222 times in the eight series of the TV show, compared to nearest rival Rocky, who has been given 162 emergencies to solve.

Paw Patrol: The Movie, which features Kim Kardashian and Jimmy Kimmel in voiceover roles, has taken £35 million at box offices around the world since its release earlier this month.

Variety, the respected film industry magazine, gave the film a glowing review, describing it as gripping and with a ‘cheeky sense of humour’.
