The first Dick Tracy cartoon series was produced from 1960 to 1961 by UPA. In the series Tracy employed a team of cartoon-like subordinate flatfoots to fight crime each week, contacting them on his two-way wrist radio. Everett Sloane voiced Tracy and supporting characters and villains were voiced by Jerry Hausner, Mel Blanc, Benny Rubin, Johnny Coons and Paul Frees. These subordinates included “Go-Go” Gomez, Joe Jitsu, Hemlock Holmes and Heap O’Calorie. 130 five-minute cartoons were designed and packaged for syndication targeted at children.
