Stunt Dawgs

Show Summary

Stunt Dawgs is an animated series about a group of movie stuntmen who fight crime in their spare time. It was based on the 1978 film Hooper, which was directed by former stuntman Hal Needham. The show revolves around the manic antics of the Stunt Dawgs, a band of Hollywood stuntmen (and one woman) who double as troubleshooters. The team, led by the gung-ho Needham, consists of: Splat (a wealthy guy who spoke like Dudley Do-Right and specialized in plane stunts), Crash (the cool African-American who specialized in car wrecks; he also had the misfortune of being endlessly pursued by an obsessed female fan named Velma), Sizzle (the token woman whose passion was pyrotechnics) and the rookie Skidd (an unkempt New-Age dude who drove a motorcycle). They also had a dog mascot named Human. The Dawgs' adventures always seemed to involve foiling the schemes of a crazed villainous Hollywood producer/director named Richard P. Fungus and his band of stuntmen, The Stunt Scabs, consisting of Airball (Fungus' sycophantic French sidekick), Budyear, a big lunk who'd do anything for money, Half-A-Mind, a disfigured stuntman who had the habit of falling to pieces-literally-and of course, had a notoriously small intellect, Lucky, who, of course, wasn't; he attracted bad luck wherever he went, and Whiz Kid, a geeky genius responsible for the Scabs' technology. Fungus also had a slimy lawyer at his disposal named Slime. Needham, of course, was named after Hal Needham. Fungus was originally to have been named Peter Bogus, allegedly a parody of director Peter Bogdanovich.moreless
