synopsis
SAVE THE INTERNET
The Internet of Tomorrow

Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most. If the public doesn't speak up now, our elected officials will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign.

003.jpg (109 K) "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.

UNDERDOG TIMELINE

1960
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.

1964
On October 3, “The Underdog Show” debuts on the NBC network and continues in syndication until 1973 with 124 episodes total.

1965
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.

2005
Underdog stars alongside several iconic Marvel superheroes in a popular Visa Check Card commercial, which debuts during Super Bowl XXXIX.

2007
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
