The beloved, long-running Nickelodeon show PAW Patrol has not been shut down as part of a wave of recent cancellations of TV series featuring police officers.
White House press mouthpiece and professional prevaricator Kayleigh McEnany — who never met a lie she didn’t want to escape her lips — claimed that PAW Patrol was canceled along with shows like Cops and Live PD in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and the months of protests that followed.
During a Friday press briefing, McEnany blurted out that her boss is “appalled by cancel culture, and cancel culture specifically as it pertains to cops. We saw a few weeks ago that PAW Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was canceled. The show Cops was canceled. Live PD was canceled. Lego halted the sales of their Lego City police station.”
While Cops and Live PD have in fact been canceled, PAW Patrol was renewed earlier this year for an eighth season. The show, which first launched in 2013, focuses on a team of highly trained search and rescue dogs who each have a specific skill set. One is trained as a firefighter, one as a police officer, one as a pilot and so on.
