Millionaire socialite art dealer Radley Crown (voiced by Gary Owens) and his mechanical dog Dynomutt (voiced by Frank Welker) enjoy leisure time in their base of operations in Big City until alerted by the Falcon Flash.
They then immediately dash to the Falcon’s Lair (in Crown’s penthouse), where they switch to their secret identities, the Blue Falcon and Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, respectively.
The Blue Falcon and Dynomutt receive the report via TV screen from the secret GHQ of secret agent F.O.C.U.S One (voiced by Ron Feinberg), jump into the Falconcar and speed into the fray against assorted evildoers.
In a similar style to the 1960s Batman TV series, the first 10 minutes of Dynomutt ends with a cliffhanger wherein the Daring Duo, in the clutches of their foes, are subjected to a perilous fate which is resolved immediately after the commercial.
The clumsy metallic mutt employs a system of miniaturised transistors that allow him to extend his limbs or neck and use them to perform extraordinary feats – although none of them ever work properly.
“B.F.” (as Dynomutt lovingly refers to him) is more Dynomutt’s victim than his master, forever being hamstrung by the latter’s insufferably clumsy mechanised mishaps, which often results in the Blue Falcon calling Dynomutt “Dog Blunder”.
The character of Dynomutt originally appeared as a segment of the Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour in 1976, then was featured a year later on Scooby’s All-Star Laff-A-Lympics, before this solo series which ran in 1978 for only three months.
