Dynomutt, Dog Wonder

Show Summary

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

  • a great animated show that I miss.

    This was a pretty good animated television series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites (Amazon.com and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.moreless
  • One of the best shows on TV, Last seen on Dexter's Lab series...

    The show was on in the 70s, when The Scooby Doo Show was on. They were both great together and seperately. But as far as I know, It never really went on much after The Scoooby Doo Show, and the next time I saw Dyno-Mutt was on an episode of the Dexter's Lab series, and he was called a goofy idiot side-kick, kinda like Dee Dee is. They should bring back Dyno-Mutt more. Maybe tbey could do a Motion Picture on Dyno-Mutt, and it could also be the next Scooby-Doo movie, if it has not all ready been done before.moreless
