For a children's cartoon from 1976, Dynomutt was *way* more satirical than expected.
It's more than a bit of a parody of the cheesy superhero cartoons of its day.
For instance, the city they live in?
It’s Big City.
No, like... it’s actually called Big City.
And is apparently into rooftop planting a couple decades before it was cool, ‘cause that's just how Big City rolls.
And what’s the name of the school the villain hopes to attend?
Big City University, duh.
Seriously. It’s all so blunt and to-the-point, I love it.
Or, take the villain of the week, Lowbrow.
And with that dapper bowtie, who wouldn't want to?
Stage one of the evil scheme is him going to said university...
...and saying “I want to go to your school to be the best at pulling robberies!“
And she has to explain to him they don't have a course in that.
Sheesh. Just when you think a nefarious caveman is able to get a little upward mobility in our society, bam, glass ceiling.
