Road Rovers

Show Summary

Welcome to the Road Rovers guide at TV.com! Show Type: WB Animated Action Comedy First Telecast: September 8, 1996 Last Telecast: February 22, 1997 Episodes: 13 Aired Color Episodes Road Rovers are an elite team of crime fighting dogs chosen from around the world. When the call goes out, they rush from their homes, (they live with heads of state around the world) and return to the Master who turns them into Cano-Sapiens (super charged dogs). The Rovers NAME: Hunter. BREED: Mutt. HISTORY: Hunter is the leader of the Road Rovers' pack. He's got that California surfer-dude mentality. His mom lives on a ranch in Wyoming (the middle of nowhere, right next to the Bermuda Triangle, a.k.a. Montana). He's also a former stray, who is sent to live in the White House where he is adopted by the President's family. His presidential digs are a reward from The Master for his heroic efforts in The Rover's first mission. He's a patriotic "never-say-die" dog who captures the best qualities of his species: he's loyal, gentle, obedient, tireless, enthusiastic, and trusting. He especially likes his tennis ball. Muzzle has always been a close friend of his, and he likes to listen to the birds. SUPERPOWERS: Super-speed, super-swimming, super-sniffing, super-tracking, super-retrieving, super-playful, super-loyal, super-friendly, super-forgiving, super-generous and super-lucky. DESCRIPTION: Brown eyes, blonde fur; with a brighter yellow fur on top, and a faded yellow underneath. He usually wears the traditional Road Rover suit. COUNTRY: USA. NAME: Colleen. BREED: Collie. HISTORY: Basically second in command. She's one tough cookie, so don't get her mad. She was living on the streets when the Master recruited her, so she's a real "street-smart" savvy dog with amazing prowess. Now, she's the British Prime Minister's playful pup with an English accent, and a quick wit to match. The only female in the RR pack, she's always in training and constantly in motion, keeping fit for the next mission. She can perform astounding heroic feats with an amazing sense of grace and agility. Like Hunter, she lives for the RR's common goal - to protect humanity and the animal kingdom from all the evil in the world. However, don't let her drive the Street Rover! There's a good reason; she doesn't have a driver's license! SUPERPOWERS: A mistress in Martial Arts. DESCRIPTION: Reddish brown fur with a thick white streak down to her white feet and tail tip. COUNTRY: Great Britain. NAME: Exilo Mikhalovic sanHusky. BREED: Siberian Husky. HISTORY: Exile was a sled dog in Siberia, the northern part of Russia. He's a little slow on American slang, but that's nothing to clown on him about. Now the Siberian Husky of the Russian President, big and bold, Exile loves being a Road Rover. He loves America ... and he also loves to hug his fellow comrades. Exile isn't very fond of Blitz. Although, he loves calling him "weird boy." As mentioned above, Exile loves America, but he still doesn't understand why they call them "hot dogs." Exile also has a subscription to "Forest Tree Illustrated." He especially likes the 'Giant Redwood Issue'. SUPERPOWERS: Super-sight, Laser-vision, Freezer-vision, X-Ray/Night-vision, and super-strength. DESCRIPTION: Light blue fur with grayish blue color on top, a white belly, and bluish highlights. COUNTRY: Siberia, Moscow, Russia. NAME: Blitz. BREED: Doberman. HISTORY: Blitz was a guard dog at an auto yard in Germany. He likes to think of himself as a 'tough guy' even though he's a such a coward. He now belongs to the German Chancellor. His commanding accent and years of obedience training make him an extraordinary guard dog for every occasion. He is the "Arnold Schwarzenegger" of the pack. He rushes to judgment, and his bite is definitely worse than his bark. He fancies himself a ladies' man (yeah, right), but in the end it's his over-the-top self confidence that helps him to overcome the most dangerous situations. He has a keen taste for tooshies. He also likes minty things, including Peppermint Milkshakes. SUPERPOWERS: Super-Jaws/Claws. DESCRIPTION: Black fur on top, and mahogany-brown fur underneath with the 'devil-eye' markings over his eyes. COUNTRY: Berlin, Germany. NAME: Shag. BREED: Old English Sheepdog. HISTORY: Shag was a humble sheepdog in the Swiss Alps when The Master called upon him. He's the RR that stays most K-9 after going through the Transdogmafier. Now, he is the Swiss President's sheepdog. He's a coward at heart, often whining and whimpering when people, loud noises, or something out of the ordinary approaches - especially felines. Shag is also the chef of the pack. He cooks the food the Rovers eat. All his recipes are great. What's his secret? He cooks everything in toilet water! SUPERPOWERS: Super-strength, Hide anything-able fur. DESCRIPTION: Tall, white fur and looks a lot like a Yeti - or the Abominable Snowman. COUNTRY: Switzerland. NAME: Muzzle. BREED: Rottweiler. HISTORY: Muzzle was The Master's dog when he was still Professor Shepherd. Muzzle's real name is Scout, but he turned crazy when Parvo put him through O'titus's version of the Transdogmafier. He then ran away and met Hunter when he was captured by the LA City Dog Pound. With Hunter's help, he escaped from the animal shelter and became the most ferocious of the Road Rovers. To this day, he continues to be strapped in restraints and a harness. A rambunctious fighting dog with an insatiable appetite, Muzzle never entered the Transdogmafier and remains a canine throughout each and every episode. SUPERPOWER: Muzzling people. DESCRIPTION: Darker brown/black fur on top, a 'fourth eye' highlight look, and a mahogany-brown fur underneath. COUNTRY: USA (sort of). Theme Song Barkin', scratchin', Frisbee-catchin' Presidential pets (That's us!) Change into the canines who Drive souped-up cars and jets (Comin' through!) Tookus-nippin', toilet-sippin' Soaring through the sky (I like it!) Diggin', droolin', quick refueling, Who says dogs can't fly? (Not me!) Speedin', crashin', Wheelin'-dashin' Vehicles explode (Oooo!) Chasin', racin', down the road Road Rovers! Hunter is a hero hound, Leader of the pack! (Huh, cool!)

Blitz chews on posteriors His barks worse than his bite (I'm perfect!) Shag is strong from head to toe A coward through and through (Ruh ruh ruh!)

  • The funniest Superheroes since Freakazoid

    9.0
    This was a very great show when it was on. It had humor but the villains were pretty dark, but not without humor as well. All the character were very funny and was very appealing to kids as well as having a nostalgic feel to adults who have seen this.



    My favorite character was Blitz because he had a massive crush on Colleen, but because he was a narcissist, she would pretend to not know his name and then he would get his butt kicked, which made me laugh as a kid.



    Sadly this show did not last long and thus, not many people may remember this show.moreless
  • I really miss this show. Why did they have to cancel it ?

    The 90s, a wonderful time to be living. And that's when this show was on the air. Before gay shows like Avatar, Catscratch and Ben 10. Now for the review. This show is about six dogs living around the world with the leaders of their country. When there is trouble brewing, a nuclear reactor about to destroy millions of people, and more dangers, The Road Rovers put a stop to it. Each of them are a different breed and have different superpowers and traits, just like regular dogs. Well, except the superpower part. In any case, this is an awesome show and it's a shame that it's not on anymore. But if you ever saw the show, you and any other dog lover would love to watch it. I know my dog would!moreless
  • Ich liebete wirklich dieses Erscheinen! es ist noch mein dritter Liebling, (mein sekude der pokemons'). welche die Idee von "Cano-sapiens" sub ist!

    Road rovers is a classic. i don't even care what anyone thinks, i loved this when i was younger,(and still do), i just know any kid would too. it depends, though. most people are too into fitting in and being popular, and the mainstream(NEIN!!), that they lose grasp of the kid in them. that may be why most teens want to try to make themselves look older, or think that they got to front. well, thats one good thing about the old kid shows, they remind me about things i don't even think about anymore.like what it was like to not go to school, but be 4 or 5,and be home and watch cartoons all day, after waking up at noon. besides, some of the new stuff either covers a gay aspect, or has too many subliminal things in it, which give kids the wierdest impressions.

    ROAD ROVERS...no aspects really, just fun cartoons.moreless

    Why wasn't this show more successful? This is such a hilarious show. So many great jokes were in this show.



    I love this show to death. I was fortunate to find copies online and was able to relive it all over again. This show is in a similar vein to Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Freakazoid. Same animation style same sense of humore.



    How can you not love this show? It has dogs that become somewhat human-like and can talk. Yet as human as they become they still act like dogs. They sniff each other. Still like to chase tennis balls.



    The charachters are great. Hunter is an all american all around good dog. Colleen is a kung fu collie. Blitz talks like Arnold Shwartzenegger and is obsessed with biting tushies. Exile is the russian husky with super heat and freeze vision. and Shag is like a giant walking carpet that pulls out the needed object from beneath his thick coat.



    All around it is a show taken before it's time.moreless

    As a Warner Bros. cartoon, Road Rovers has all the same comedy and wit as their other shows, such as Animainiacs, Histeria, and Freakazoid. The rovers team consists of dogs from all over the world. Hunter is a mutt from America who is the leader of the team with super speed. Colleen the collie is from London, and rather than have a super power, she is a mistress in martial arts. Exile is a sled husky from Siberia. His powers include freeze vision, laser vision, and night vision. Blitz is the egotistic doberman from Germany with super powerful jaws and claws. Shag is the cowardly sheepdog from Switzerland with super strength. Muzzle is the last “member” of the team. Although he never is transformed into a Cano-Sapien, he is quite vital to the team. He is always restrained in a straight jacket on a dolly due to him being… well crazy. When the team needs a lot of damage done to something, they release Muzzle! All of the rovers are very different from each other, and one of the great parts of the show is seeing these dogs from all parts of the world working together to save it. The show only ran one season with 13 episodes. The WB was planing to air new episodes, but didn’t (even though the ratings for the show were great). Still, even with the short run, Road Rovers is a great cartoon.moreless
