Trivia

In their book "How Underdog Was Born...", W. Watts Biggers and Chad Strover reveal that seeing Wally Cox's performance in the 1963 movie Spencer's Mountain (1963) inspired them to ask him to voice their newly created character, Underdog. See more »

Alternate Versions

The series originally aired with a four-part "Underdog" episode running complete in its 30-minute time slot. All current TV prints are a compendium of two related shows, "The Underdog Show" and "Tennessee Tuxedo And His Tales" (but shown under the "Underdog" title), with each of their segments mixed into each 30-minute episode. Some TV prints open with a segment "introducing an exciting scene from today's 4-part episode...", but instead of going into the preview the main credits roll. The end credits use titles from both "Underdog" and "Tennessee Tuxedo" shows. See more »

Underdog Sub Cartoons
18 January 2004 | by williebobo95See all my reviews

"There were a number of other cartoons that ran along with Underdog, including one about 2 American soldiers in the old west tangling with two Native Americans (who would probably be seen as racially offensive today). I can't recall the others."

That cartoon was called "Go Go Gophers".
