There’s no need to fear
Forget that god awful looking CGI pup we’ve seen in the movie trailers. The one, true Underdog will be collected on a three volume DVD box set this summer. Released by Genius Products, under license from Classic Media, the $29.98 collection will feature digitally re-mastered episodes with Wally Cox (the voice of Underdog) sounding better than ever. Not only that, the DVDs will collect the 1960s television series as originally broadcast so fans can delight in the additional escapades of Hunter, Go Go Gophers, Klondike Kat, Tennessee Tuxedo, King and Odie, Tootie Turtle and Commander McBragg. The release date has been listed as both July 24 and August 6 while the god awful-looking CGI movie opens on August 4.
Trivia point: did you know that the meek, sheepish Wally Cox once was Marlon Brando’s roommate? Underdog, indeed!
