Underdog Sub Cartoons
18 January 2004 | by (Trenton,NJ,USA) – See all my reviews



"There were a number of other cartoons that ran along with Underdog, including one about 2 American soldiers in the old west tangling with two Native Americans (who would probably be seen as racially offensive today). I can't recall the others."

That cartoon was called "Go Go Gophers".
