Doggy Super-heros

For Murph, who is woefully unaware of all the doggy superheros out there.


First up is the immortal Underdog! He battled villians, he rescued bitches in distress, and his very name is a pun! What's not to love?


Back in the 1950s there was RinTinTin. RTT was on a popular family TV program, kind of like Lassie only so much more badass. Except for the loser kid. How come in all these programs there's a stupid kid, a smart dog, a perfect male role model with a square jaw and straight teeth, and a woman waiting at home wearing high heels while she does the vacuuming? Anyway...


Then you've got McGruff, here. He helps kids take a bit outta crime. Grrr!



And lastly (but certainly not leastly), our very own Daisy the Wonderbeagle!

Faster than a speeding hedgehog...
More powerful than smelly blankie...
Able to leap tall kibbles in a single bound!

Oh, first. Yay!

Anyway, what about mild-mannered janitor Hong Kong Fooey?

I get the Impression you like big books. Ho-ho, me so funny.

*scuttles off*

Timorous Beastie said...

Ah, what a beauty queen. Bless her cotton socks.

Frobisher said...

I agree with Mr Farty - where is Hong Kong Phooey?

Dave said...

What;s a kibble?

Dave said...

How did that semi-colon get in there?

What's.

Farty: *scuttles off, leaving a trail of burn marks*

TB: yeah, and she's still tickin'. we have no idea why she's still alive.

Frobi: i'm so nervous i'm not even going to google that name. lord only knows what will pop up, and i'm sure i don't need to see it.

Dave: a kibble is a nugget of dried dog food.

Dave: people who anthropomorphize puncutaion make me happy!

Dave said...

Thank you. Oh, and I almost apologised to you, at my place.

Almost.

First Nations said...

First Nations said...

GreatSheElephant said...

Nothing is more powerful than a smelly blankie.

Hong Kong Phooey is African American? I would have assumed Asian, although I'm not entirely sure why.

First Nations said...

..voiced by the immortal Scatman Caruthers, was Hong Kong Phooey.

Babs said...

I came in here to ask where Hong Kong Phooey was, too. And I'm glad I wasn't the only one!!

Also--do I get points for knowing an insane person on the bus that's actually nicknamed this??

Da Nator said...

Hong Kong Phooey - Number One Super Guy!
Hong Kong Phooey - Quicker Than The Human Eye!

And yay - long live Daisy!

BTW, I met McGruff once. He lives outside of Philly and is a staunch Democrat. Okay, maybe it was the actor who played McGruff, and I was doing door-to-door lobbying, but he sounded just like McGruff!

Chaucer's Bitch said...

Dave: horseshoes and handgrenades, mate.

FN: you want hongkong phooey? do your own stinkin' post. i will have no hongkong phooey here. *walks off with nose in stratosphere*

*walks back in*

and one more thing: we don't need no canookie boys here neither. there are more than sufficient great american heros. you sir, are unpatriotic. how dare you suggest such a thing. you are an affront to the american lay of wife.

*returns nose to air*
*resumes silent patronizing*

babs darling, you can have all the points you want. *snaps princess points into air*

Nator: as long as he's a democrat, that's all that matters.

Deputy Dawg?
Huckleberry Hound?
Precious Pupp?
Spike & Chester? "Hey Spike, ya wanna chase some cats? 'Cause you're so strong and I'm so puny!"
"AAHHH SHAAAADUPPP!"

Daisy wooks so sweepy.
She is 'suchagooodgirl' oh yes she is. You probably don't talk baby-talk to her do you?
But I would-oh yes I would 'cause she is 'suchagoodgirl' oh yes you are....

Lorna said...

Dog superheroes - they're ok, I suppose... Personally, I'd pick Dangermouse any day: 'wherever there is danger he'll be there', and all that! ;)

You do have a very very cute beagle, though: is Bluto jealous of her cuteness?

Murph said...

Sorry I'm Late!!!

As the orthotics customer said, I stand corrected.

I'll believe a Beagle can fly!!
