D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: He’s Got A Bulldog Jaw!

  

It’s been a while since I talked about Dick Tracy (January 22, 12008, to be exact) and it’s long overdue.

A real mainstay of the comics pages, Dick Tracy has long been a favorite of mine, and hopefully, yours too. The edge-of-your-seat plots, the fine detective work, and those bizarre villains!  Dick Tracy inspired countless crime-fighters, even the long-underwear boys. (Batman springs to mind as an obvious example.) And nobody looks better in a yellow slicker. Man, he makes that look work for him!

Besides the terrific comic strips and comic books, there was a Dick Tracy radio show, Dick Tracy movie serials, Dick Tracy feature films, plus lots of Dick Tracy toys and premiums.

In 1961, an animated Dick Tracy TV show introduced politically incorrect ethnic characters: Hemlock Holmes, Joe Jitsu and Go Go Gomez, all of whom are featured in today’s ultra-rare musical selection.
