It went unnoticed by millions but it should have been front page news. Earlier this month, at the age of 85, W. Watts Biggers passed away. What he left is an attachment that everyone who watched TV in the sixties and seventies will never forget.

There isn’t a person on the planet who hasn’t felt like an underdog sometime in their life so when the animated cartoon character ‘Underdog’ hit the airwaves people could relate to him.  This super dog was small in stature but was always there to help anyone who was in an “underdog” situation. He would always come through to defeat the villain and then proudly pronounced the famous line “Have no fear, Underdog is here”.

The show ran from 1964 through 1973 and was created by W. Watts Biggers.  Thanks Mr. Biggers for reminding us that we all have a little “underdog” in us and that there is always someone out there who will be there for us in our time of need.

Have no fear Mr. Biggers, where ever you are, because of you Underdog will always be here.
