MOUNTIE chapter IV

Dudley Do-Right
Dudley Do-Right, created by Alex Anderson with Chris Hayward and Allan Burns, is the hero of a segment on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show which parodied early 20th century melodrama and silent film (by using only a piano as a musical background) in the form of the Northern genre.

Dudley Do-Right is a dim-witted, but conscientious and cheerful Canadian Mountie who is always trying to catch his nemesis Snidely Whiplash, more often succeeding by pure luck than anything else. He romantically pursued Nell Fenwick, the daughter of Inspector Fenwick, the head of the Mountie station. A running gag throughout the series was Nell's showing such interest in his horse (called Horse), that she rarely noticed Dudley's interest in her at all.

Dudley Do-Right once made a cameo in a "Rocky and Bullwinkle Fan Club" segment, playing the hero in "She Can't Pay the Rent", a play staged by Boris Badenov. Rocky and Bullwinkle also appeared as cameo in an episode called "Mountie Bear".
In the standard intro, Dudley is seen riding his horse while mounted backwards.
