Lucky Pup - A white, wealthy playboy
pooch on the children's program THE ADVENTURES OF LUCKY PUP/CBS/1948-51.
Lucky Pup with Doris Brown
Lucky Pup battled the evil plots of a bumbling, pointy-nosed
magician named Foodini who with the aid of his stooge Pinhead tried
to steal the canine's five million dollar inheritance left to him in
a will by a deceased circus queen.
Lucky Pup and his pal, Jolo the
clown were the creations of Hope and Morey Bunin who manipulated the
puppets on the show.
In 1949, writer William Saroyan said of the show “without doubt
the best and most dramatic show on television.”
In 1951, the
program was renamed FOODINI THE GREAT because the character Foodini
had become more popular than Lucky Pup.
Doris Brown narrated and hosted the original program.
