He's got a bulldog jaw...

50 years ago Dick Tracy was everywhere - especially thanks to his short lived but memorable 1961 cartoon adventures.

He almost got back on the tube in 1967 but the live action pilot didn't get picked up as a series...

despite the KICKASS theme music by the Ventures!

Everyone's fave arm of the law was even immortalized on 45 earlier in 1961 by NY group The Chants during the height of Dick Tracy-mania.

Have a listen and remember group, crime doesn't ever pay.
