  • show Description
  • First seen on The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour, these half-hour antics animated derring-do showcased The Blue Falcon,a blue-clad superhero and his robotic doberman, Dynomutt Dog Wonder. The show, although based around crime-fighting, super heros and'evil do-ers' it seemed more to remind you of watching an episode of secret squirrel with all of its gags and laughs. Millionaire art dealer Radley Crowne (B.F.) and his mechanical bud, Dynomutt, enjoy leisure time in their base of operations; Big City, until alerted by The Falcon Flash. They immediately dash for The Falcon's Lair (situated in Crowne's penthouse apartment), where they switch to their secret identities, The Blue Falcon and Dog Wonder receive their news/crime report via TV screen from the secret GHQ of secret agent Focus One and then jump into The Falconcar and speed into the night to battle crime and to save the citizens. Dynomutt controlled a system of miniaturized transistors which allowed him to extend his limbs or neck and use them to perform extraordinary feats; only problem was, none of them ever really worked properly! B.F. (as D.W. would lovingly refer to him), was more Dynomutt's victim than his master,since more then a few times, D.M.s gadgets. But nevertheless, Dynomutt and The Blue Falcon, who was equipped with his own arsenal of supergadgetry manage to get the situation well in hand. Sometimes Lt. Mumbly or even Dynomutt's co-stars, Scooby-Doo and Mystery Inc. would drop in to aid The high-tech Duo in cracking their toughest crimes. Dynomutt Dog Wonder has the historic significance of casting the first African-American public official in Saturday Morning cartoons, Mayor Gaunt (voiced by Larry McCormick). 16 30-minute episodes of Dynomutt Dog Wonder were seen in 1976-77 on ABC'S The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour; it later became The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Show when it was extended to an extra half hour. In 1977-78, when it was extended to yet another half hour under the umbrella title Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics (the first [and insofar much as known, only] 120-minute Saturday Morning cartoon in network history!), 4 new "Dynomutt" shows were seen as 8 11-minute 2-parters, under the title The Blue Falcon And Dynomutt. Dynomutt Dog Wonder has enjoyed many periods of resurgence, on ABC Saturday Morning in the summer of 1978, on NBC Saturday Morning and the USA Network Cartoon Express in the 1980s and with frequent runs on Cartoon Network, the last being in February 1999.moreless

    • Mr. Hyde: A new batch of Hyde formula, Blue Falcon-Hyde. Blue Falcon-Hyde: Yes, but how will you go to other cities without being recognized as Mr. Hyde? Dynomutt-Hyde: Yup. That face of yours kinda stands out in a crowd! (laughs)

    • Fred: We found a clue, Blue Falcon. This rubber glove was on the museum floor right where Mr. Hyde stood. (gives the glove to Blue Falcon) Blue Falcon: Activate your computerized clue analysis circuit, Dog Wonder. Dynomutt: (opens a door on his chest) Down the hatch with the criminal catch. (Blue Falcon puts it in and Dynomutt processes it and something prints out) Blue Falcon: What does it say, Dog Wonder? Dynomutt: Uh, it's a rubber glove.

    • Shaggy: Zoinks! When Dynomutt malfunctions, it's a major disaster looking for some place to happen!

    • Dynomutt: Fear not, fellow dog. Dog Wonder will protect his canine cousin from the evil Hyde. (tries to show his muscles but they fall) Gosh! The old biceps circuits are getting a little flabby around the electrodes.

    • Blue Falcon: Now the question is, where will Mr. Hyde strike next? Dynomutt: I think, with a face like his, it'll be Jewel's Beauty Shop.

    • Shaggy: Gee, this is terrific! Blue Falcon treating us all to a turkey dinner. Blue Falcon: My pleasure. You kids were a big help in capturing Lowbrow. (he prepares to carve the turkey but Dynomutt stops him) Dynomutt: I'll take care of it, B. F. I'll do the honors with my patented high speed Dyno Carvers. (he accidentally activates his Dyno Mallets instead and pounds the turkey flat) Duh...Anybody for turkey pancakes?

    • Lowbrow: I got it! The Super Brain is all mine! I am going to be smart! Blue Falcon: Wrong, Lowbrow. Crime is never smart.

    • (Blue Falcon and the gang are setting up a trap for Lowbrow and everyone is in disguise) Fred: And now for the demonstration of the Electro Super Brain. (the audience applauds) Shaggy: Yeah, like thank you very much. Can we have a volunteer from the audience who wants to be smarter? Dynomutt: Hey! I'm your man there, Professor! Velma: Hmm, he sure looks dumb don't you agree, Professor Daphne? Daphne: Yes, just what we want. Shaggy: (whispers to Dynomutt) Okay, Dynomutt. Remember, act stupid. Dynomutt: I'll try, but it won't be easy. Shaggy: Well, let us see here. Can you add these numbers (2 + 2), sir? Dynomutt: Uh...sure. Two and two is uh...four. Shaggy: That's the right answer. Dynomutt: Glory be! Gosh! I thought three and one was four.

    Trivia (3)

    • When The Worm and his lackeys are going to the other helicopter on the rope, one of the lackeys is a black man that is in no other scene.

    • When Dynomutt is being chased inside the grocery store in his Professor Zilch disguise he trips on some cantaloupes and when he falls into the box that Roto Chopper and Bugsy Bubsy are holding, he's in his regular Dynomutt outfit.

    • When the Worm and his lackeys approach the school, the helicopter they are in is the same one they sealed Blue Falcon and Dynomutt in and sent out over the ocean. They should be in a Chinook twin bladed helicopter instead of the single blade helicopter that is shown.
