I'm the second person to comment on this classic cartoon from the 50's. However,it has not been seen in ages since the last time it was shown near my area was back in the early 1980's on a local TV station that I picked up out of Columbia,South Carolina(which was a NBC-TV affillate). However,Dayton Allen(who was the voice of Deputy Dawg and numerous other characters)made a huge ton of money off of this,but it was one of Paul Terry's classic creations that was along with his famous stars.... "Here I come to save the day!!!"-MIGHTY MOUSE!!! and those wisecracking magpie birds of mischief HECKLE AND JECKLE. However,its a crying shame that you don't see these classic Terrytoons cartoons anymore,and I wonder why,especially DEPUTY DAWG and his always mischief friends like the 'always on his case' sheriff and his sidekicks Vincent Van Gopher and Roger Raccoon in some sticky situation or another as he tries to maintain law and order in the South. My dad when he was a kid used to see this in theatres,but nowadays I don't know if is out on video cause it needs to be shown.
