[opening lyrics for episodes featuring Riff Raff as the villain]
Chorus: When in this world the headlines read / Of those whose hearts are filled with greed / Who rob and steal from those who need / To right this wrong with blinding speed / Goes Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! / Speed of lightning, roar of thunder / Fighting all who rob or plunder / *Underdog!* Underdog! *Underdog!*

Underdog
29 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is awesome classic about a dog who saves everything w/ cool background music & characters I won't let this show canceled because there a lot of Cappy shows on the air & Underdog is one of the most good shows thats on so please give it a little while for it to stay. If people want crap than let there be a vote first.

So please leave this show alone & cancel only crap just crap not classics I want to let only good shows like this one to stay & cancel crappy shows like CatDog, Bleach, House of Mouse & other crap crap crap

This cartoon is great.The Underdog series almost acts like the real thing.This cartoon can make anyone laugh even the grumpiest person in the world will like this show.Almost everyone will like this show and will get addicted by this show.This catoon is very classical if you ask me because there is great voice acting.This show includec a lot of comedy acts as well.There's one episode where U.D. shows bravery and justice.Underdog lives in some sort of town with some green man.He helps with his girl called Sweet Polly.Underdog has an ego(kid). He dgose recklessly around the town with his flying as if he dosen't have a bad day at all.
