Favorite Character #1: UNDERDOG

Name: Underdog

Property: Television show

Genre: Superhero/comedy

Created by: Chet Stover, Tread Covington and artist Joe Harris

Character Background/Synopsis: When villainy threatens humble Shoeshine Boy's little town, he takes the Underdog Super Energy Pill and gains fantastic super powers as the champion hero Underdog.

What makes him/her cool: In addition to being the very first cartoon I actively remember, and the first to inspire me to safety-pin a towel around my neck and leap off of the furniture, I love Underdog because I'm a sucker for superpowered characters, especially so when I was a kid.
