100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd aired from October 1999 until April 2002 on Nikelodeon.
A school bully got an unusual comeuppance in this sitcom.Smug 17-year-old Eddie McDowd ( played in the pilot by Jason Dohring) had just finished terrorizing his latest victim, new kid Justin ( Brandon Gilberstadt), by running him up a flagpole when he met a mysterious drifter ( Richard Moll) who turned him into a dog ( The dog was voiced by Seth Green and later by Jason Hervey). The only way he could get back to boyhood, he was told , was by completing good deeds. Worse yet, his family and buddies had lost all memory that he ever existed, and the only person who could hear him now was Justin! At first Justin wasn't much interested in helping Eddie escape his sentence, and Eddie wasn't even sure he could bring himself to do that much good, but Justin was a sweet kid and eventually they bonded, despite Eddie's continuing mean streak. Gwen ( Morgan Kibby) was Justin's self-absorbed older sister; Doug ( William Francis McGuire), his mailman dad; and Lisa ( Catherine MacNeal), his overachieving mom, an advertising executive. Sariffa ( Brenda Song) was a very smart new kid in school who befriended Justin. Midway through the series' run, Gwen went to England on an exchange program and the Taylors took in her English counterpart Tori ( Melanee Murray), who became Justin's new foil. Sally and Caesar ( voiced by Joe Piscopo and David L. Lander) were neighborhood dogs with whom Eddie commiserated. Unfortunately, the series was canceled after 40 episodes and only 72 deeds, so he is presumably still out there somewhere barking.
Eddie ( the dog) was played by a mixed -breed Australian Shephard/Siberian husky named Rowdy.
