Storyline

Cartoon series produced by UPA, in which Dick Tracy (voiced by the distinguished film and stage actor Everett Sloane) played more or less of an incidental role. Most of the crime fighting was left to his assistants, all originals created for the series: Hemlock Holmes (an English bulldog who talked like Cary Grant), the calorically challenged beat cop Heap O'Calorie (who talked like Andy Devine), and the offensively (today) stereotyped Latino and Asian characters Go-Go Gomez and Joe Jitsu, respectively. Most of the familiar Tracy villains from the comic strip (Flattop, Mumbles, Pruneface, etc.) were featured here, as well. In addition to Sloane, such talented voice persons and character actors as Benny Rubin, Paul Frees, and Mel Blanc handled much of the voice-work for this series. Written by Bob Sorrentino

Amazingly bad
17 June 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is about the only animated cartoon series that MIGHT have been as bad as the animated Hercules cartoons of the 60s (from Trans Lux TV). The show was astoundingly bad. So bad that Hanna and Barbera at their lowest point would have refused to put their names on it bad! So bad that children suddenly remember they have some homework to do when it comes on bad! The worst aspect of the show was the crappy animation. A slide show would have seemed less wooden and static! And the stories themselves bore only a superficial resemblance to the cartoon strip. And the dialog,...I've read better dialog on ads for zit creams! If you have Bright House cable, you may be able to see this monstrosity for yourself to see if I am right. It's been listed on their cartoon on demand channel, so if you do have the chance, watch it--unless you aren't a masochist.

Oh, and by the way. Despite what others may have said, the show was NOT faithful in any way to the cartoon strip. It wasn't even close!
