Sergent Dog: It's a big assignment, troops! The most important we've ever had here at STAR Labs! I need each of you to look sharp, be alert, and stay on the ball!
Buddy: No problem, Serge. On the ball it is! (Starts playing with his ball)
Sergent Dog: Our Buddy, a hero? Well...that's a stretch.
(Krypto and Buddy wink at each other)
Krypto: There, that's the last of the water. (Sees another puddle) Oops...missed a spot. (Shoots Buddy with heat vision while he's in puddle form).
Buddy: Hey! Watch it!
Sergent Dog: Buddy!!! Are you playing with that ball again?!
Villain(s): Mike and Benny (passing off as Two STAR Labs Janitors)
Hero Debut: Stretch-O-Mutt.
Buddy has a strong resemblence to Hong-Kong Phooey. They both also mess up a lot.
Stretch-O-Mutt seems to be a canine counterpart to the DC Comics hero Plastic Man (I'm not going to say parody since Plastic Man is a pretty zany hero in his own right). In addition to the stretching powers, there is also the fact that that both heroes got their powers from falling into a vat of chemicals AND there's also the manner in which Stretch-O-Mutt used his powers...humorously but definitely effectively.
