Dogs driving cars. ‘Nuff said. Good night everybody.
…oh you want a little more than that, huh? Alright then. This past weekend on the Saturday Morning Cartoon Show we watched Road Rovers. If you’ve never heard of this show don’t worry yourself too much over as it’s not exactly a “classic”, though even to this day it has its fans. Premiering in 1996 on Kids WB! and lasting all of one season Road Rovers was a superhero spoof show during a time when Freakazoid! and Earthworm Jim were on television and probably as a result it’s not nearly as remembered. In fact it was created by Tom Ruegger who, in addition to creating Freakazoid!, also created Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs and Pinky and Brain so it may be easy to see how this show was overshadowed by its more popular siblings. Despite its short run it would continue to re-run for the next few years.
