Help Those in Distress - Dudley Do-Right

Dudley Do-Right Of The Mounties

A regular contributor to the long-lived "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show," Dudley Do-Right was as good a do-gooder as ever did a good deed. Outrageously thoughtful, polite, brave, and stupid, the Canadian Mountie rarely rode through an episode without rescuing his beloved Nell from an oncoming railroad train. Or a huge radial saw. Or perhaps from a subprime mortgage scam.

While he may have lived in northern Canada, the chin-clefted, overgrown Boy Scout was perhaps a little too good to be exactly cool. But we can't argue with his sense of right and wrong—and we'd sure rather emulate him than the mustachioed, green-tinged Snidely Whiplash. We only wish Dudley could've wrapped the evildoer in a wad of aluminum wrapping. Then Snidely would really be foiled again.
