'Underdog' flies again on Nick

June 20, 1992|By Los Angeles Times

Look, up in the sky!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it Rocket Squirrel? Is it Mighty Mouse? Is it Superman?

No, it's Underdog! Yes, Underdog. Everyone's favorite canine hero and high-flying popular attraction in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. And never fear! Nickelodeon has begun showing repeats of the 125 episodes of the classic animated series.

Nick also has added the beloved "The Bullwinkle Show" to its cartoon kingdom lineup, which features the venerable "Looney Tunes," "Inspector Gadget," "Danger Mouse" and "Heathcliff" and the original Nick toons of "Doug," "Rugrats" and "The Ren & Stimpy Show."

"Underdog" originally premiered Oct. 3, 1964, as part of NBC's Saturday morning cartoon lineup. It moved to CBS in 1966 and soared back in 1968 to NBC, where it aired for another five years.

"Underdog" airs at 4 p.m. weekdays on Nickelodeon.
