Since 1957 Hanna and Barbera they abandoned the Metro Goldwyn Mayer and they set up on their own creating the famous company "Hanna & Barbera". From here began the famous cartoons with the characters that we all know like Yogi, Huckleberry Hound and Flintstone etc ... Among these we remember the very nice Luke Tortuga it's the dog Dum dum. Luca Tortuga is a spadacina turtle, characterized by a white hat with a D'Artagnan plume. He fears no one when he has to face enemies with his unsurpassed sword. Luke Tortuga (original name Touché Turtle) is always ready to intervene whenever he is called on the phone (which he extracts from his shell) by some person in difficulty who needs his intervention and his clever foil slightly bent at the tip. Luke TortugaTo the cry of "Battalion, caricaaaa !!!"runs towards new adventures, the reward for our hero will come at the end of the job, if therefore he will be able to defeat his opponent on duty. Luke Tortuga in the course of his adventures he must be able to capture bank robbers, dragons, robots, monsters, giant octopuses and all the traditional characters of the adventure genre. But things do not always go smoothly for Luca Tortuga and sometimes his inseparable friend Dum Dum gets involved in complicating matters. Dum duma somewhat naive and clumsy Saint Bernard dog who manages to complicate even the simplest things. It happens, for example, that he starts to help some robber disguised as Luke Tortuga while robbing a bank or he too clumsily tries his hand at the use of the sword, remedying thin figures. Luca Tortuga e Dum dum are part of the crew of the arcaplane, a kind of flying Noah's ark commanded by theBear Yogi where there are all the characters of the Hanna & Barbera like the very famous Braccobaldo, Ernesto Sparalesto, Svicolone and many others. Their purpose is to protect the earth from the danger of pollution, by some bad guy on duty. In the opening theme they all sing together "We all leave together, let's go far, on the arcaplan ..."
