“There’s no need to fear / Underdog is here!”
If you remember these lines, you’ll remember Underdog, the diminutive flying cartoon pooch in the Rocky and Bullwinkle series who used to fight Bad Guys. I hated him because he was the simpering and much too soft-spoken Shoeshine Boy who had a crush on Polly Purebred, who seemed to always become the victim of a scheme by Riff Raff. Lots of dog puns abounded. I loved him because he said EVERYTHING in rhyming couplets in his Superhero alter-ego state.
He was a pretty good hero. He used poetic license to solve crimes and make witty retorts.
You have to love an Underdog who becomes the Alpha Dog.
