Where are you Deputy Dawg?
8 November 2005 | by michael_mckennaSee all my reviews

I haven't seen my oil' canine hero since 1971! Back in the early 1960s (around 1964) we used to watch it every afternoon on our Zenith portable black & white set around supper time. Sometimes we used to wheel the set in the kitchen and watch it as we ate supper. Ah, those were the days! Then, in 1971, I rediscovered the pure joy of watching our canine hero battle them nasty lil' varmints. At the ripe mature age of 17, I found that even though I had grown up a bit, I still enjoyed Deputy Dawg every bit as much as I did when I was growing up! It was such a wonderfully ridiculous cartoon that was so wonderfully "rural" with the drawl and the background hillbilly music! They sure don't make 'em like that anymore. Such a shame! I'll bet my retirement check that if I ever got my hands on a DVD or video of DEPUTY DAWG, I would discover that at the age of 51, I would have a riot watching the antics of Deputy Dawg and all them varmints giving him a run for the money!
