Spot the Dog is a series of picture books by children's author Eric Hill. The first book in the series, Where's Spot, was published in 1980. Three more Spot books were published between 1984 and 1996. The main character in the books, Spot, is a yellow puppy with a brown spot on either side of his body and a brown-tipped tail.
The books were adapted into a television series on the BBC network, The Adventures of Spot, airing between 1987 and 1993, and in 2000 as Spot's Musical Adventures. In 1990 and 1994, two specials, It's Fun to Learn With Spot Phase I and II, were released on VHS.
