Not a total rip off.
This cartoon seems highly unoriginal but since it was before my time I can't say for sure what has been ripped off from other cartoons.I do know that Mudsy has the exact same voice as Snagglepuss, a carbon copy even.I also know that voice is an impersonation of Bert Lahr(the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz).Most people will call it a Scooby-Doo rip off but that's only because they haven't seen the countless other cartoons it "borrows" from.I noticed another review on here that said "Even more amazing is a Shaggy-like character complete with goatee!".That statement not only proves that he has never seen this show because there is never one person on screen with any facial hair, it also proves he has never seen Speed Buggy, which has an actual Shaggy clone(albeit without the facial hair).Even Jabberjaw had a "Shaggy-like character", guess he never saw that either.I just watched every episode of this today and never once thought any of the characters were "Scooby-Doo- like".I did however notice that two of characters can't pronounce "helicopter" and I found that to be extremely disturbing.If you can look past all the stuff they stole, you will see a somewhat original show.A lot of the stories center around the Revolutionary War and New England.You will never see another cartoon do that.Plus the dog doesn't talk.It doesn't get more original than that.Overall I'd say if you like cartoons you should watch this.Just watch it with an open mind and you might have a good time.I just checked and Speed Buggy came after this show so they stole the dune buggy idea from this show.This show is more original than people will admit.
