I love cartoon dogs! Here are some of the more popular ones in alphabetical order. My favorites are definitely Scooby Doo and Pluto. With his joy for life, Pluto was so happy, and loyally loved his Mickey Mouse. Scooby Doo was part of our school's "animated urban legend" when I was a teen. The Mystery Van legend had Shaggy in the back as the local marijuana dealer, while Scooby was his protective “muscle.” That dog's cowardly streak, of course, made protection impossible, which made it so funny. They also sampled "the weed edibiles," and that’s why the two always had the "munchies" for food and Scooby snacks! And also why they avoided any mysteries because they knew the police would show up We had a teacher near tears when we said her favorite cartoon was about a drug dealer and his dog, but it’s what we all joked about in high school. It just seemed so very obvious --even today!!!
For me, Scooby Doo rocks as my favorite cartoon dog. Second was Dino the dinosaur, who loved his cranky master so much that he knocked Fred Flintstone to the floor every time, accompanied with slurpy kisses and wild barking. And third: Bandit from "Jonny Quest," a little dog just the opposite of ScoobyDoo. Bandit went full on warrior when it came to villains.
My middle brother could do perfect dog barks, and I used to beg him to do Bandit for me all the time. He would do it a few times, then smile and shake his head until the next day. He always left the audiences wishing for more! He died of cancer, leaving a wife and four children behind. A dog lover as well, see his picture and link to the American Cancer Society on the bottom of page 10.
