UNDERDOG

I actually met Suzanne Muldowny dressed as Underdog at New York comic cons back in the 1970s when she was no more eccentric than any other crazed comic book/cartoon fanatic. But in the intervening years her cult of celebrity has grown – in no small part by exposure on the Howard Stern show (Stern’s father happened to be a sound engineer on the original 1960s Total Television series). Now someone is making a movie about her. Just watching the trailer is enough for me – but it proves Andy Warhol’s famous statement, paraphrased: if you act crazy enough, for long enough, anyone can be “famous for 15 minutes”.
