Saturtainment: The Dogfather (1975)

One of DePatie-Freleng's lesser known creations was The Dogfather, a canine parody of "The Godfather", coming off the two movies based on Mario Puzo's legendary gangster novel.

Bob Holt, a DFE regular who'd been working on the studio's Dr. Seuss adaptations, voiced the title role, and was the only actor given screen credit in 1975's "Medicur":

Dogfather made his television debut as part of NBC's Pink Panther & Friends, but would resurface in a 1993 syndicated reboot of Panther, with Joe Piscopo (ex-Saturday Night Live) replacing Holt.

No rating.
