When I saw the episode title "Mail Order Bride" I got this image of the dog's owners ordering him a mate and her arriving through the post in a cardboard box.I used to watch this show as a kid and I don't know why, as I always found it depressing.
I don't know if it's depressing. The dog seems pretty happy adventuring on his own.
for reals, the Littlest Hobo was incredibly depressing. The dog would cruise into town, bond with some nice misunderstood person, fight crime and corruption or whatever, and then cruise off without so much as a by-your-leave, leaving some heartbroken kid behind him. Why, Hobo, why? Weren't we good enough for you? I thought you loved me!
