However, it still remains unconfirmed which source Stern will turn to, in order to finalise his list of characters. Stern can use DC’s Legion of Super-Pets or the Cartoon Network series for the pets' characters. Collider notes that the first appearance of the Super Pets team occurred in Adventure Comics #293 (February 1962).

They include Krypto the Super-Dog, Streaky the Super-Cat, Beppo the Super-Monkey and Comet the Super-Horse from the Superman and Superboy comics; Aquaman’s seahorse Storm; Flexi the Plastic Bird, Bat-Cow; and Damian Wayne’s dog Titus from Batman.

Krypto the Superdog featured in a standalone comic series which even included characters of Beppo and Comet. Marvel also had its own animal-centric comic book titled Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers.

Jared Stern has written live-action comedies like The Internship, The Watch and Mr. Popper’s Penguins.

Stern's recent directorial projects include a comedy titled Happy Anniversary. The movie starred Noël Wells and Ben Schwartz. He also executive produced the animated films Storks and soon-to-release Smallfoot, both for Warner Bros.

He also co-created Ken Jeong‘s ABC sitcom Dr. Ken for television.
