The group consists of Larry, the team leader; Pepper, one of two female members; D.D., a Velma {{expy}} in a deerstalker cap but nowhere near as smart, and Dotty, the youngest member of the group and the team's troubleshooter. There are two dogs as well--Woofer (a bloodhound with a bravado complex) and Wimper (a basset who knows better). These two dogs can talk plain English to each other and other animals, just not to humans. Sheriff Bagley is the baffled flatfoot who sees the Clue Club as more nosy than helpful but he takes his cap off to them when the crime is solved.

''Clue Club'' aired on Creator/{{CBS}} starting on August 14, 1976 (replacing ''Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!'', which moved to Creator/{{ABC}} a month later). After a season, the episodes were chopped down to ten minutes and used as a feature on ''The Skatebirds'', rebilled as ''Woofer & Wimper: Dog Detectives''. At mid-season, ''WesternAnimation/TheRobonicStooges'' (another ''Skatebirds'' feature) was given its own time period (retitled ''The Three Robonic Stooges'') and took ''Woofer & Wimper'' with them. In 1978, ''Clue Club'' returned to CBS, airing on Sunday mornings. In the mid-[[TheEighties Eighties]], reruns of the series would become a staple of the early [[USANetwork USA Cartoon Express.]]

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: On at least two occasions, Woofer and Wimper have been chased by creatures with no seeming connection to the mystery. Once by a supposedly "stuffed" bear, and once by a giant monster jack 'o lantern. On both occasions, the dogs scare off their pursuer, in the case of the bear by saying they wanted a giant bear skin rug, and in the case of the jack o' lantern, by setting up a both at the County Fair to make "giant pumpkin pies". Since both the bear and the jack 'o lantern seem to understand the dogs when no one else can, and are never "unmasked" later as being involved with the villains of their respective episodes, they don't really seem to serve any purpose other than to give us funny moments with the dogs.
