Svengoolie has made some powerful friends. Last year, MeTV's very own Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night host bumped into Batman, the Joker, Wonder Woman, Superman and other Justice League heroes in the pages of Svengoolie Meets the DC Universe. You'll have to go back and collect DC titles from last fall to gather the whole story.
Currently, Svengoolie is brushing shoulders with another classic crimefighter, one with a coat and hat that matches Kerwyn! That's right, Sven popped up in the panels of Dick Tracy!
In the Sunday, September 27, installment of the daily Dick Tracy strip by Joe Staton, Mike Curtis, Shelley Pleger and Shane Fisher, Dick phones Sven (well, Rich Koz — he and the detective seem to be on friendly terms) for a little help. Why? There's a mystery with a vampire happening! There's even a MeTV employee sporting a MeTV T-shirt! Golly! We feel famous.
Spoiler alert: Little Orphan Annie seems to be on her way to our studios, too! Keep reading Dick Tracy to see how Svengoolie and Dick (and Annie) team up.
Dick Tracy and Svengoolie have similar roots, both products of Chicago. Illinois native and Northwestern alum Chester Gould created Dick Tracy nearly 90 years ago. The detective with the nifty watch made his debut in 1931!
