Krypto and Underdog

A meeting between the world's two greatest superhero pooches has been long overdue.  I have always loved Krypto, and I am glad that attempts to write him out of Superman's continuity are usually eventually undone.  Underdog was fondly remembered from my childhood, but I still couldn't get too excited about the movie version from a few years back - I don't think that live action was the best way to go.

Awww, yeah!

I remember the Underdog cartoon. It was a mix of animals and humans. The live action film tried to domesticate Underdog and make him someone's pet. Like Benji. My kids like Underdog... and Tim Allen's The Shaggy Dog.

I'm still waiting for The New 52 to unravel and things to go back to the way they were...

I have to deduct one star for lack of rhyming dialogue on Underdog's part. Maybe if the word balloon had read something like:

"There you are, my friend!
Don't fret over your travail.
I'll have you free of this trap
In two shakes of a beagle's tail."
