76 Deputy Dawg
First watched : 1972
Deputy Dawg was an old five minute cartoon series brought out of retirement - it hadn't been shown since 1968 at least - to plug a gap on Friday afternoons in January 1972. It concerned a favourite Hollywood stereotype, the pompous but slow-witted Southern backwoods lawman, now in the shape of a portly dog. The series though was generally affectionate towards the South with Dawg allowed his fair share of triumphs against his mischievous foes Muskie Muskrat and Vincent van Gopher and they would often end up fishing together.
I can't remember too much more about it.
