Set in World War I, Dick Dastardly, his dog Muttley, and the rest of the Vulture Squadron are bent on capturing Yankee Doodle Pigeon to prevent him from delivering his messages to the enemies. Aboard their many crazy aircraft, Dastardly and Muttley devise nefarious plans to stop the pigeon. Their motivation is the possibility of earning a medal or maybe even a 30 day furlough. The only problem is, that crafty pigeon always seems to be one step ahead. Written by

I am waaaay too young to have seen this show when it first came on, but I watch it all the time on Boomerang. Probably my favorite cartoon. Pink Panther and Tom Jerry are second. This show is about Dick Dastardly and his "miserable hound/mangy mutt" Muttley. They try to catch a pigeon, by the name of Yankee-Doodle Pigeon. Like a Tom & Jerry but with a pigeon. Every episode Klunk, a member of the clan who talks with weird sound effects, makes inventive planes to stop the pigeon. Yet that darn pigeon outwits them every time. I love it when Muttley is always trying to get a medal, by saving Dastardly. And Klunk and Zilly are great characters, this is definitely one of my favorite shows, and it has that catchy theme song, Stop the pigeon, stop the pigeon, stop the pigeon...
