Toonfomercial: Where's Deputy Dawg when you really need him? Dick Tracy & Muskie shill for Soaky (1963)

Now, friends, here's a real rare treat.

Dick Tracy (Everett Sloane) is in Deputy Dawg's territory, but there's no sign of the Terrytoons law-dog. Instead, Muskie Muskrat (Dayton Allen) is seen filching some eggs, but there's a little surprise, in the form of a pair of Soaky soap dispensers, each bearing the likenesses of Muskie & Tracy.

Not sure if Terrytoons completely animated this ad or got some outsourced help.

To think it would be eight years before Tracy would get another cartoon gig.
