Since 2012 Canadian artist Andrew Lamb has been adding pop culture characters to Neighborhood Watch Signs around Toronto.
#4) ROAD ROVERS (1996)
an American animated television series written and produced by Warner Bros. Animation that premiered on Kids’ WB on September 7, 1996. It lasted one season and ended on February 22, 1997. Reruns continued to air until September 6, 1997. It was then on Cartoon Network from February 7, 1998 until 2000. Much of the humor contained in the show was derived from popular culture of the mid-1990s.
The show follows the adventures of the Road Rovers, a team of five super-powered crime-fighting anthropomorphic dogs, known as “cano-sapiens”. The roves consist of Hunter, a golden retriever mix from the United States, Colleen, a rough collie from the United Kingdom, Blitz, a Doberman from Germany, Exile, a Siberian husky from Siberia, Shag, either a Polish Lowland Sheepdog or an Old English Sheepdog from Switzerland, and Muzzle, a Rotweiler. The Rovers’ boss is a scientist known as “The Master” who oversees their operations and supplies them with equipment from their subterranean headquarters.
Why was it cool?: IT’S ABOUT CRIME FIGHTING SUPER HERO DOGS
Ohh hell yes!
Not willing to let Disney sink their hands into that sweet, money flavored TMNT pie, Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animation threw their hats into the ring with this glorious action/adventure-comedy hybrid.
It was Warner Bros so you knew exactly what you were getting; witty and hilarious dialogue (the references are a bit dated now), funny and memorable characters, stellar voice acting, and a catchy musical score.
Despite being a TMNT rip off it could easily stand out on it’s own. The Rovers were competent heroes with some nifty abilities, great gadgets and vehicles, but unfortunately with a very minuscule Rogues Gallery. In fact as far as I remember they only had one chief villain.
Even more unfortunate, Road Rovers suffered the same curse as Freakazoid in that despite being so good, it was short lived, and episode premieres were met with low ratings.
Such s shame really, a damn shame. As a kid I secretly hoped Road Rovers would’ve gotten popular enough to warrant a toy line, but I should’ve known better since out of all the WB cartoons only Batman and Superman could manage that.
- Road Rovers features an all-star voice cast
- Jess Harnell (as Hunter)
- Tress MacNeille (as Colleen)
- Jeff Bennett (as Blitz)
- Kevin Michael Richardson (as Exile)
- Frank Welker (as Shag and Muzzle)
- Joseph Campanella (as The Master)
- Jim Cummings (as the chief villain, General Parvo)
- In the episode, “Take Me To Your Leader” , Professor Atwater from “Still a Few Bugs In the System” makes an appearance in the prison with Storm. Brain from Pinky and the Brain can also be heard in the prison.
Quite possibly two of the biggest competitors in Childrens Programming during the late-80’s and early-90’s were Disney and Warner Bros, and it’s kind of funny how they both tried to take down Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with their own crime fighting anthropomorphic animal teams.
In the end though, both failed to impress, and Turtle Mania raged on.
But unlike Mighty Ducks, Road Rovers definitely holds up as a true gem of the 1990s. It’s as fun and funny as they come.
If you want to watch it, there’s no dvd release but every episode is up on youtube, and I would highly recommend it.
As a final-final thought, I can’t help thinking if this series were made today one of the characters would be a Welsh Corgi.
just a thought.
