I remember this cartoon series well when it aired back in the late 70's. Typical Saturday morning show (later aired after school as well while in syndication), with a basic plot that somehow managed to come across in an entertaining manner. The series centers around Dinky...a huge Old English Sheepdog and his misadventures living with his two young women owners and their uncle. Due to Dinky's massive size, he constantly wreaks havoc, mainly at the expense of the long suffering Uncle. But due to his lovable "gentle giant" nature, and his ability to somehow right his wrongs...his family can't help but to love the big guy no matter how much damage he manages to inflict. Anybody who's ever owned a pooch (especially a big one who think's he's a lap dog) can sympathize with both the clumsiness as well as the unconditional love a canine companion can offer. So despite the very basic late 70's animation and formula- based story lines...this charming series will put a smile...and even a chuckle...on any dog owner's face. It may even make you think..."they made a cartoon about my goofy dog!"
