The First Canine Rapper, Underdog, LIVE-ACTION!,
This review is from: Underdog (DVD)Back in the sixties, that long-ago age,
An animated super-mutt was truly the rage!
Voiced by Wally Cox, the lovable geek,
The dog always rhymed, whenever he'd speak.
Underdog was the Mighty Mouse of his time,
Saving the city and always in rhyme!
And while some may feel a 'live' update is trivial,
I find this new movie entirely convivial!
Frederik Du Chau directs with a wink,
And the result isn't as silly as many might think!
Jason Lee's voice, while not as nerdy as Cox's,
Is warm and beagle-friendly, whenever he talks!
The animals, not humans, are the stars of this flick,
Although Peter Dinklage's Barsinister is a real kick!
At 4'5", he's teamed with 6'3" Patrick Warburton,
And they steal every scene until the final curtain!
I loved the references to "Superman, the Movie",
And as a sixties kid, I found everything groovy!
Of course, since it's Disney, it carries his stamp,
With a romantic send-up of "Lady and the Tramp".
So Mom and Dad, make your little ones happy,
Buy this doggy gem, and make it snappy!
It's family-friendly, so there's no need to fear,
They'll thank you and exclaim, "Underdog is HERE!"

Bravo, you hit the rhyme time right on the head. And I had forgotten the simple rhyme of the show. Fond memories. I was at a Manhattan Transfer show and in the middle of their act they started humming and broke out with the theme song. The crowd went WILD as did I..Just a simple theme song with no music. I was in shock, I LOVED IT..
