Finally, the classic 1960s cartoon Deputy Dawg has been released on an exclusive DVD Box Set by DVDRare.com/ The set contains all 99 episodes plus 5 ultra-rare short films!
Deputy Dawg is a Terrytoons cartoon character featured on the animated television
series of the same name in an original TV weekly run from 8 September
1962 to 25 May 1963, with no episodes on 8 Dec to 29 Dec 1962 resuming
on 5 January 1963. The cartoons are between four and six minutes long,
and were packaged three at a time and shown as a half-hour program in syndication. The show was produced by CBS and was the professional animation debut of Ralph Bakshi (as inbetweener) of Fritz the Cat
fame. There were also 5 titles that were released theatrically, for
show in cinemas & were not part of the original TV package.
The character of Deputy Dawg (a dog) is a deputy sheriff in the Mississippi bayous of the United States. The other main characters are the 'varmints' Muskie Muskrat, Moley Mole, Possible 'Possum, Ty Coon, Vincent van Gopher, Pig Newton, and Dawg's boss the Sheriff, as well as Mrs. Deputy. Deputy Dawg was voiced by Dayton Allen, a prolific Hollywood voice actor who voiced many Terrytoons characters in television and theatrical shorts in the 1950s and 1960s.
Much of the comedy is sight gag/action based with some focused around comical accents and stereotypical southern characteristics. Many of the storylines involve Deputy Dawg protecting his produce
from Muskie and Vince, battling with some of the peculiar locals and
trying to please the Sheriff. However, most of the crimes committed by
Muskie and Vince weren't treated seriously, and Deputy Dawg was on
friendly terms with them most of the time (except when he had to perform
his duties as a lawman and keep them from causing trouble). Deputy Dawg
would pal around with Muskie and Vince just as often as he would lock
them up in the Jailhouse, and the trio would often engage in their
favorite pastime, fishin' for catfish.
