Clue Club

Clue Club was a Saturday morning animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions from 1976-1977 on CBS.

Similar in format to Hanna-Barbera’s Scooby-Doo, the show centered around a group of four teenage detectives, the Clue Club — Larry, Pepper, D.D. and Dotty — who solved mysteries with the help of two talking bloodhounds named Woofer and Wimper.

Clue Club mysteries usually involved investigating bizarre crimes such as a movie director vanishing or a two-ton statue disappearing into thin air.

Woofer would constantly accuse suspects without good reason, then later back-track while proclaiming his genius; and Wimper, a more down-to-earth, easy-going, yet intelligent dog, would at times go along with his comrade’s schemes, and other times turn the tables on his pal. This, and Wimper's ability to find pertinent clues elevated his character to equal status. Unlike Scooby-Doo, the dogs are only able to talk to each other and not to humans.

  1. It looks a bit familiar but I think I must have watched something else.

  2. That theme song reminds me of a cartoon "Theme from Shaft." ^^
