Dog of the Geek: Jeb!

vrt-jeb
Jeb is the one on the left -- the other dog is a mystery to me!  
Breed: Redbone Coonhound

Original Appearances: VR Troopers

Other Appearances: Unknown, he may have appeared in the toy line or video game.

Biography: Pet to VR Trooper Ryan, Jeb is able to talk (with a voice like Jack Nicholson's) due to a power surge. Ryan got Jeb to promise not to talk around other people, so Jeb is usually silent. He's known for his mischievous personality and humorous demeanor. Once, Jeb had to fight as a Trooper when he and Ryan accidentally switched bodies. Jeb has a voracious appetite, eating any food lying around.

Powers: The ability to speak.

Group Affiliation: VR Troopers

Miscellaneous: Jeb was played by Zeb, and voiced by Kerrigan Mahan. VR Troopers was an attempt to cash in on the success of Power Rangers, as well as the interest in virtual reality. The show used Japanese stock footage from Superhuman Machine Metalder, Dimensional Warrior Spielban, and Space Sheriff Shaider, collectively known as the Metal Hero series. I don't believe that Jeb was part of those Japanese shows.

  1. due to some of the shows being almost completely unrelated, Ryan's outfit was completely different to the others and you often had him fighting one villian, while the other two did stuff together. Got a little iffy how they always had to spilt up, but that was why.. and no, i'm 90% sure the original didn't have the 'tie in' mascot character.
