Here's Boomer was a Heroic Pet Story series that aired very early in The '80s, featuring the adventures of a mixed-breed dog. As The Other Wiki points out, the premise of the show was similar to The Littlest Hobo.
Newly famous on the Internet because a very big fan recently (August 2010) tried to legally change his name to "Boomer the Dog" and was denied by the court. Is there no justice?!
- Heroic Pet Story: The series follows the adventures of Boomer, a stray dog that traveled around helping people in trouble.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes - in order to get an English language video of the show to put on his youtube channel, the guy had to combine video from a German TV broadcast with audio from a home cassette tape. (Picture a kid in the 80's sitting next to the TV with a tape recorder, capturing the audio) The result (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeK8p0CBwv8) is actually pretty good quality!
- Walking the Earth - the theme song possibly summarizes that trope better than anything else outside of its Trope Namer:Like magic he appears, a hero to save the day,and just when you think he's here for good,that's when he goes away. Because he'sBoomer, he's never gonna settle downBoomer, wandering from town to town
