  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

HOT DOG prototype - in 1964?
« on: April 15, 2016, 06:11:34 am »
I was struck, when browsing through some old cover images from issues of LAUGH, to see these covers featuring shaggy white dogs bearing an amazing resemblance to Hot Dog. The actual Hog Dog (as named) didn't appear until plans got underway for Filmation's The Archie Show,  which first aired in 1968. These covers from LAUGH are dated May and July of 1964, respectively.

There was a dog who looked like Hot Dog in one of the '40s stories, he was Archie's new dog.

I remember Archie having a dog in the 1940s stories, but I don't remember it being a big, shaggy white dog that looked like Hot Dog. Do you have an image of the dog you're thinking of?

If I find it again I'll post it, it was probably an image from the old forum.  :(

Archie had a Hot Dog-esque dog named Bonaparte for one story in Archie Comics #33. He even made the cover of Archie Archives #10! Archie's other dog Oscar, who appeared in a number of Sahle-era stories, did not bear a resemblance to Hot Dog.

Just the one story? Was he Hot Dog-like in any other way (thought balloons, lazy, glutton for food), or just in appearance?

As far as I can tell, he only appeared in one story. No other Hot Dog-like characteristics aside from his appearance.

He does look a lot like Hot Dog though, allowing for the 1940s style of drawing.

He was kind of like Hot Dog by causing a lot of trouble but I guess that's like all dogs.

I just came across this Oscar dog. I had never heard of him before.

Oscar first appeared in some of the early 1940s comic book stories.

Actually, Hot Dog used to be Archie's dog before he was Jughead's. I recall a story like that, though I can't find it yet. Anyone else remember it?

I was noticing how, while he's generally still recognizable, there's quite a bit of variation between the different classic Archie artists as far as how they draw Hot Dog. The original Filmation-designed character has a pretty distinctive look, but after a short while in the comics, it seems like few Archie artists bothered to reference that design for their model when drawing Hot Dog. In more recent stories in particular, I noticed that Fernando Ruiz' version of Hot Dog seems less fat than the version typical of other artists, though he's still a big dog.
