{"title":"Dynomutt, Dog Wonder","dateDebut":"1976","dateEnd":"1978","description":"Courtesy of Wikipedia:\r\n\r\nDynomutt, Dog Wonder is an American animated television series produced for Saturday mornings by Hanna-Barbera about a Batman-esque super hero, The Blue Falcon and his assistant, a bumbling mechanical robotic dog named Dynomutt.\r\n\r\nThe show was created for ABC in 1976 as a companion show for Scooby-Doo, resulting in The Scooby-Doo\/Dynomutt Hour. In his secret identity, Blue Falcon (who is most likely a parody of Batman, right down to his nearly endless gadgets and his millionaire secret identity) is millionaire Radley Crown, proprietor of Crown Art Gallery, and Dynomutt is his loyal pet. But when called to action, the duo quickly change into their superhero guises. Unlike Scooby-Doo, Dynomutt featured spies and powerful criminals in place of assumedly supernatural villains, although the Scooby gang made three guest appearances on the show.\r\n\r\nIn 1977, Dynomutt, Dog Wonder became part of the package show Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics. Four new episodes, presented as two-part cliffhangers, were produced for the 1977-78 season. Reruns from the first season of Dynomutt were also broadcast during the Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics block. The Dynomutt segments from both package shows were later rerun on their own during the summer of 1978. Between 1984 and 1992 it reappeared on cable on USA's Cartoon Express (some of the original bridging sequences from The Scooby-Doo\/Dynomutt Hour had been restored for this purpose and were sometimes seen; other times, the syndicated titles were shown). Cartoon Network and its sister channel Boomerang has repeated the syndicated Dynomutt Dog Wonder since then (without its omnipresent laugh track).\r\n\r\nBlue Falcon and Dynomutt have made guest appearances in the modern-day Cartoon Network shows Dexter's Laboratory and Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. Blue Falcon also appeared, without Dynomutt, on an episode of Johnny Bravo, in which he, \"Weird Al\" Yankovic, and Don Knotts redesign Johnny's show in a parody of overdone cartoon makeovers that are often despised by audiences.","leadImageMedUrl":"http:\/\/distro-1.retrojunk.com\/secure\/97e7eaee74dbfbbb1687002f5540677527f6a21855d379b3361c7ea8b523cfd93a1dd8\/image\/e2a_69cbcac314.jpg"}
