ABC will add the animated skein “Teacher’s Pet” to its “Disney’s One Saturday Morning” lineup this fall.

Nathan Lane, whose previous TV credits include NBC’s short-lived “Encore Encore,” provides the voice of Spot, a talking dog who disguises himself as a boy and becomes a school teacher’s favorite student.

ABC has ordered 13 episodes of “Teacher’s Pet,” including full 22-minute episode and pairs of 11-minute episodes.

The series, from Walt Disney Television Animation, comes from cartoonist Gary Baseman, whose artwork has appeared in Time and Rolling Stone, as well as been commissioned by Nike, Capitol Records and others.

Also on board as executive producers are sitcom writers Bill and Cheri Steinkellner, who won an Emmy for their work on “Cheers.” Michael Price (“The PJs”) serves as co-exec producer, while Timothy Bjorklund (“Rocko’s Modern Life”) is director.

Other voice actors include Shaun Flemming, Debra Jo Rupp, Jerry Stiller, David Ogden Stiers and Rob Paulsen.
