The Deputy Dawg Show is a long-running animated cartoon that aired from
1959 to 1972. In it, Deputy Dawg (Dayton Allen) is a slow-moving mutt
who works the dead end town of Creekmud Junction in the remote corners
of Tennessee. Animals routinely sneak out of the nearby swamp to cause
trouble for Deputy Dawg, most of which consists of stealing eggs from
the locals' henhouses. Deputy Dawg clumsily but successfully intercepts
them. The cartoon was a staple of Saturday morning children's
programming for better than a decade.
