Noooooooo! Leave my beloved Underdog alone!

‘Underdog’ a New Pet Project
Spyglass Entertainment, the Disney-based producer of “The Sixth Sense,” has nabbed the feature film rights to the 1960s cartoon series “Underdog.”
A broad comedy that parodies the superhero genre, “Underdog” is the story of an inept watchdog transformed into a superhero after being accidentally exposed to an experimental elixir. The live-action feature will boast CGI elements.
The animated TV series, which first debuted in 1964 on NBC, sees Underdog called into action by his would-be girlfriend, ace news reporter Sweet Polly Purebred. The anti-hero subsequently learns to thwart the evil plans of unsavory characters such as underworld uber boss Riff Raff.
Spyglass paid rights holder Classic Media a mid-six-figure sum, with the final payout rising to more than $2 million if the film is produced.
