Dudley Do-Right is the eponym 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 was a dim-witted Canadian Mountie who was 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. However, a running gag throughout the series was Nell's interest in his horse (called Horse), to the point that she scarcely noticed Dudley's interest.
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.
In the standard intro, Dudley is seen riding his horse backwards.
In 1969, Dudley Do-Right was featured in his own show, The Dudley Do-Right Show, which consisted primarily of existing episodes from the series, produced by Jay Ward Productions and Total Television. In later years, Jay Ward Productions created animation cels intended for sale and not for use in animation.
