Who would have believed that it was 54 years ago today that I, the famous cartoon dog Yowp, made his TV debut? How fleeting are the days! And, ah, what memories!
Well, there aren’t too many memories. As my loyal fans throughout Yowpdom know, I only appeared in three cartoons. The first was Foxy Hound-Dog, drawn by Lew Marshall and Mike Lah, the second was Duck in Luck, animated by Carlo Vinci (the less said about the duck which appeared therein and went on to stardom, the better) and the third was Bear Face Bear, drawn by Gerard Baldwin. Hey, Elmer-Bugs-Daffy had a trilogy, so why can’t I?
To mark the festive occasion, feel free to do one of two things. Celebrate by going up to your friends and barking “yowp, yowp!” Or, if you think that’ll destroy valuable friendships for life, watch the debut cartoon below (if it hasn’t been yanked from the internet by the time you read this).
