"There's no need to fear. Underdog is here!" The superhero canine with a gift for rhyme returns in an all new live-action re-imagination of the classic cartoon, "Underdog."
After an accident in the mysterious lab of maniacal scientist Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage), an ordinary beagle unexpectedly finds himself with unimaginable powers and the ability to speak. Armed with a fetching superhero costume, Underdog (voiced by comedian Jason Lee) vows to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capitol City and, in particular, one beautiful spaniel named Polly Purebread (voiced by Academy Award® nominee Amy Adams). When a sinister plot by Barsinister and his overgrown henchman Cad (Patrick Warburton) threatens to destroy Capitol City only Underdog can save the day. — More here
Buck Biggers, an account executive at the New York City-based advertising
agency, Dancer Fitzgerald Sample, teams up with Chet Stover and
illustrator Joe Harris to create Underdog. The series was developed
to help sell breakfast cereals for their client, General Mills.
On October 3, “The Underdog Show” debuts on the NBC
network and continues in syndication until 1973 with 124 episodes
On November 25, the Underdog float premieres at the Macy’s
Thanksgiving Day Parade. Joe Harris designed the float horizontally
to showcase the pup-of-steel in a flying position (and ultimately
to ensure he’d get more air time). The float becomes a fan
favorite and popular symbol of the parade.
Underdog stars alongside several iconic Marvel superheroes in a
popular Visa Check Card commercial, which debuts during Super
Disney releases “Underdog,” the new live action feature
film on August 3rd. The movie stars Jim Belushi and Jason Lee as
the voice of Underdog
