Space Canines Animated

The Space Canine Patrol Agents made a return just a few years back, only not directly to comic books. The legion of super hounds re-appeared in the short-lived Krypto the Superdog cartoon, renamed the Dog Stars. The Space Canine Patrol Agents were the absolute last characters I ever expected to see again, let alone on TV, so it was positively surreal to see them cavorting on Cartoon Network. The Warner animation folks have done a fantastic job of bringing the DC Universe to the screen for a range of ages, and Krypto was an entry for the preschool set, but fun nonetheless. Wanna see Tusky Husky, Tail Terrier, Hot Dog, and the rest in animated action? Heres a link to their first appearance on Krypto the Superdog.

Good to see that the legacy of Mammoth Mutt LIVES ON!

They even kept the SPCA oath in the cartoon! Luvvit!

Normally I cringe when companies try to "repurpose" their "catalog" (like when they keep trying to make musicals out of movies and TV shows), but Krypto's old stuff worked great for this lighthearted show for the younger set. The Brave and the Bold cartoon is getting mileage out of the older stuff, too.

Tusky Husky has to have the worst superpower of the bunch. (If not the worst superpower EVER!) I mean... he can grow ONE tooth to ludicrous size? Please! :-)
