Storyline

Cartoon series produced by UPA, in which Dick Tracy (voiced by the distinguished film and stage actor Everett Sloane) played more or less of an incidental role. Most of the crime fighting was left to his assistants, all originals created for the series: Hemlock Holmes (an English bulldog who talked like Cary Grant), the calorically challenged beat cop Heap O'Calorie (who talked like Andy Devine), and the offensively (today) stereotyped Latino and Asian characters Go-Go Gomez and Joe Jitsu, respectively. Most of the familiar Tracy villains from the comic strip (Flattop, Mumbles, Pruneface, etc.) were featured here, as well. In addition to Sloane, such talented voice persons and character actors as Benny Rubin, Paul Frees, and Mel Blanc handled much of the voice-work for this series. Written by Bob Sorrentino

Worst Cartoon Evar!
2 December 2006 | by neutrino68See all my reviews

Okay, not quite the worst. Next to the 1960's Felix the Cat series, this is the single worst cartoon ever devised. Dick Tracy isn't even in the cartoons except to assign the case to someone else. There is no humor, there are no jokes, the animation is ugly. You just sit and wait for it to end so maybe a better cartoon will be on afterwards. An exercise in torture. Truly awful. Where is Dick in his flying trash can? Nowhere. They made over 120 of these disasters. I cannot fathom why. Watching this deplorable excuse for animation skitter across the screen is like having to fold laundry, scour burned cookware, or file numerical documents in a large insurance company. Tedious, unrewarding, mind-destroying, soul-sucking stuff.
