Dog of the Geek: Dynomutt!

dynomutt01Breed: Robot Dog

Original Appearances:
The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour, 1976

Other Appearances: Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics, 1977; Dexter's Laboratory episode “Dyno-Might”; several comic books, self-titled and otherwise; a number of licensed toys and merchandise.

Biography: Dynomutt lives with his owner, millionaire socialite Radley Crown, in Big City. When the Falcon Flash is alerted, the duo enter The Falcon's Lair, where they become Dog Wonder and The Blue Falcon, and go off to solve a variety of crimes.

Dynomutt is a robotic dog with a bewildering array of abilities. Most commonly used was his ability to extend his limbs, similar to Marvel Comics' Machine Man.

Group Affiliation: F.O.C.U.S., Scooby-Doobies

In the Dexter's Laboratory episode in which Dynomutt appeared, the Blue Falcon has brought his damaged dog to Dexter for repairs, but Dexter decides to build an all-new Dynomutt, which goes out of control. Dexter has to repair and reactivate the original Dynomutt in order to put the new Dynomutt X-90 back on the scrap heap. A few of the villains Dynomutt fought had names that were puns on more established comic book villains, such as the Queen Hornet! And as if that wasn't odd enough, the Queen Hornet teamed up with several other Big City villains to form... “The Injustice League of America”! Apparently Hanna-Barbera staff was unaware that such a villain group was already appearing in Justice League of America comics. The Blue Falcon has appeared on a few Adult Swim programs without his sidekick.
