Hello everyone! 🙂
It’s Day 15 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2016’.
What do Clark Kent and Sweep from ‘Sooty’ have in common?
Well they’re both superheroes! No honestly they are! Clark Kent is Superman and Sweep is Superdog! I’m not making this up! In ‘The Sooty Show’, Sweep the cute little dog was sometimes the greatest superhero Superdog in the series. It’s so surprising when Sweep is such a ‘sausage brain’ at times.
Here’s a video introducing Sweep as Superdog in ‘The Sooty Show’, presented by Matthew Corbett from the 1980s. The scene is from the opening of the 1988 episode ‘Superdog and the Comedian’. I love this introduction to Sweep as Superdog. It’s so funny when Sweep can’t find his Superdog outfit!
I used to watch ‘Sooty’ when I was a young kid back in the 90s. I enjoyed watching the ‘Sooty’ episodes on VHS and recorded some of them on video when they were shown on CITV. Sweep is my favourite character from ‘The Sooty Show’. He’s a loveable little dog who’s so funny in all of his scenes.
In the full episode of ‘Superdog and the Comedian’, the villain happens to be Derek Deadman as the Comedian. Derek Deadman played the Sontaran called Stor in the ‘Doctor Who’ story called ‘The Invasion of Time’. Isn’t that interesting?! And of course the Comedian is a take on the Joker, isn’t he?!
I love this introduction to Sweep as Superdog from the ‘Superdog and the Comedian’ episode of ‘The Sooty Show’! Sweep is a very funny little dog and I love how he gets introduced by Matthew Corbett who narrates most of the scene. You should enjoy it when Sweep as Superdog flies across the sky!
Thanks for watching and reading!
