Cartoon Production Information:
Deputy Dawg was the loyal but dim-witted Southern lawman from a backwoods Tennessee precinct, Creekmud Junction, and who, despite his own ineptitude, always manages to catch the bad guy. The animals that live in the nearby swamp tend to give Deputy Dawg a hard time. Most of the trouble stems from Muskie Muskrat and his predilection of stealing eggs from the Sheriff's henhouse.
Three incidental characters would be spun off from this show into their own. A little blue space alien would become Astronut, Mischa Mouse would become Macon Mouse for the theatrical Possible Possum series, and the Long Island Duckling would become Duckwood.
He became so popular in the south, that these cartoons were released theatrically two years later.
Many local stations ran Deputy Dawg from 6 to 7 p.m., directly competing with Hanna-Barbera cartoons.
Ralph Bakshi has been credited with directing the last episodes.
