Tracy employed a series of cartoony subordinate flatfoots to fight crime each week, contacting them on his two-way wristwatch radio.
Everett Sloanevoiced Tracy, while Mel Blancand Paul Freesvoiced many of the other characters, including:
* Manuel Tijuana Guadalajara Tampico "Go-Go" Gomez, Jr., essentially a human version of
Speedy Gonzales, another Blanc character, though Frees did his voice for most of the series.
* Joe Jitsu, a parody of
Charlie Chanand Mr. Moto(featuring many racist stereotypes of Chinese and Japanese culture). He is an intelligent detective who fights with martial arts (repeatedly slamming his victim to the ground while saying "So sorry!... Excuse prease!... Begging your pardon!"). He is named after the Japanese martial art of jujitsu. Benny Rubinprovided his voice throughout the series.
* Hemlock Holmes, a
Cockneypolice bulldog (named in honor of Sherlock Holmesand with a voice patterned after Cary Grant). He is backed up by his own police squad, The Retouchables (named after The Untouchables, but behaving more like the Keystone Kops).
* Heap O'Calorie, a parody of
Andy Devine, a cop with a serious weight problem and a penchant for stealing apples from an outdoor fruit stand. Before setting out on an assignment, Heap would invariably get the "word on the street" from a bongo-pounding beatnik(named "Nick") who communicated solely by beating coded messages on his drums.A running gag had a gangster's bullet fired point-blank at one of the detectives, who would yell, "Hold everything!" The bullet would obediently screech to a halt and "wait", while the detective called headquarters for further instructions. Action would resume only after the sign-off catchphrase, "Six-two and even, over and out" was spoken at the end of the call.
Pruneface, Itchy, Mumbles, Flattop, Cheater Gunsmoke, B-B Eyes, and Tracy's other idiosyncratic villains. Usually, two villains teamed together, such as Flattop and B-B Eyes, or Pruneface and Itchy. Each pair of villains had at least one member who smoked either a cigar or a cigarette on an extender.
Strangely, the cartoons seldom involved the title character. Tracy would always open each film in his office: "Okay, Chief! I'll get on it right away. Dick Tracy calling..." He would then hand the case over to one of his comic law-enforcement assistants, who would do all the work and take all the risks. Tracy showed up at the very end, usually by helicopter, to congratulate the assistant on a job well done.

Mr. Magoo crossover
Since UPA was also the producer of the
Mr. Magoocartoons, it was possible for them to arrange a meeting between Tracy and Magoo in a 1965 episode of the season-long TV series " The Famous Adventures of Mr. Magoo". In this episode, "Dick Tracy and the Mob," Tracy persuades Magoo (a famous actor in the context of the "Famous Adventures" series) to impersonate an international hit man whom he resembles, and infiltrate a gang of criminals made up of Flattop, Pruneface, Itchy, Mumbles, and others. Unlike the earlier animated Tracy shorts, this longer episode was played relatively straight, with Tracy getting much more screen time. It's notable for pitting Tracy against a coalition of several of his foes, a conceit that would be adopted more than two decades later in the 1990 film.
Original syndicated run
These 130 five-minute cartoons were designed and packaged for syndication much in the same way
Associated Artists Productionspackaged the Popeyeand Warner Bros.shorts. Usually intended for morning and afternoon "kid's shows", a local host would introduce the cartoon as part of the show.
The cartoon show was a success perhaps as a child's version of "The Untouchables" that was popular at the time. Local hosts of the show offered "Dick Tracy Crimestopper" badges and certificates their viewers could send in for.
Matteltoys manufactured a series of toy weaponswith the Dick Tracy logo and the Crimestoppers could communicate with each other by toy Dick Tracy wrist radios.
This package was pulled from syndication in the mid-'70s, and was not seen for years afterward because of its perceived slightly racist undertones and use of ethnic stereotypes and accents. [ [http://www.fpsmagazine.com/review/070108dicktracy.php The Dick Tracy Show: The Complete Animated Crime Series] ] The show resurfaced on television in 1990 to coincide with the release of the feature film, as well as in 2006 on pay-per-view digital cable channels and DVD.
The cartoon appeared on various independent stations across the
United Statesin June 1990. Asian and Hispanic groups started charging that characters Joe Jitsu (a Japanese buck-toothed character) and Go Go Gomez (a sombrero-wearing Mexican) were offensive stereotypes. Two stations in Los Angeles removed the airings and edited episodes were then sent out. Henry G. Saperstein, then the chairman of UPA stated "It's just a cartoon, for goodness sake."
