NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Dudley Do-Right was originally a segment of The Bullwinkle Show. It was slotted in on Sunday mornings to replace The Beatles cartoon, which ABC felt had run its course.

Dudley was the handsome but none-too-bright officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, whose main task was to bring in arch-villain Snidley Whiplash. Dudley sought the hand of Nell Fenwick, daughter of the RCMP commander, but Nell had a rather strange attraction to Dudley's horse.

Two Dudley cartoons were brackets for Fractured Fairy Tales and Peabody's Improbably History. When the show went syndicated afterwards as Dudley Do-Right And Friends, the middle features became elements from Total Television's King Leonardo and His Short Subjects.
