The Greatest Mountie of Them All! Not to Mention the Most Inept!
Remember Dudley Do-Right? Of course you do! The bumbling Canadian Mounted Police officer who protected his Canadian Province in the early 1900's? There was Inspector Fenwick who was about as dumb as Dudley, and his daughter Nell, who Dudley was in love with. And of course, there was a villain: Snidley Whiplash. He would always be tying Nell to railroad tracks and Dudley would save her just in time!
There were other segments on the show too! There was the adventures of King Leonardo, a lion, and his assistant Odie Kaloney, a skunk who lived in Bongo Kongo. The king and Odie were always out to stop the dastardly plots of Biggie Rat and Itchy Brother. Itchy was King Leonardo's brother, which is why he was called Itchy Brother. There was also The Hunter. A master detective dog who talked alot like Foghorn Leghorn! And let's not forget Commander McBragg! He tells tales of how he founded lands and discovered the extraordinary! Most of the time he makes up his stories while other times they're true.
There was a Dudley Do-Right movie in 1999. Starred Brendan Fraser who also did the George of the Jungle movie. It wasn't very good. However the George of the Jungle movie was good! I also recommend it. In the cartoon, Dudley managed to catch Snidley Whiplash but never keep him! He usually got away or was released under Inspector Fenwick's or Dudley's ignorance. Bill Scott voiced Dudley. He's also the voice of Bullwinkle J. Moose. June Foray is the voice of Nell Fenwick and Paul Frees was Inspector Fenwick. Foray and Frees did almost all cartoon voices of the '50s and '60s. And Hans Conried is Snidley Whiplash. Scott, Conried are Frees are dead now. Foray is still alive. So in conclusion, The Dudley Do-Right Show was enjoyable. Sure the animation was crude, but it's not as bad as some of the junky cartoons on TV today! i.e. The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory! So if you can find it, check out Dudley Do-Right!
