There's A Voice That Keeps On Callin' Me by MegBeth There's A Voice That Keeps On Callin' Me by MegBeth
Ok, for whatever reason, I decided to draw The Hobo (played by the dog London) from... well, The Littlest Hobo
:iconilavplz:
Canada's answer to Lassie!
:dummy:

NOSTALGIAAAA!!!
:happybounce:
Okay, let me level with you guys here: this show is PURE 80s cheese... a true guilty pleasure of mine... ^^;

The story centres on a stray German Shepherd who wanders across all of Canada (hence the term "hobo"... meaning "drifter") and stopping along the way to help people with their problems. After all is put right, he hits the road again until his help and kind nature is needed to show people the way once more.
Now, the acting in this show was sub-par at best; it was very cheesy, really lame and overall just outlandish... The ONLY good actor was the dog... but that's why I watched it as a kid! I didn't care about the people! The Hobo was the reason I watched it!
:dummy:

Not to mention, the dog is a genius! He can do so many incredible things! He's so good at solving puzzles and getting people and himself out of sticky situations, saving their lives, risking his own SEVERAL times... he's like Macgyver, if he were a dog! :la:
But he's also ridiculously humble and sweet and clever and lovable and kind and loyal and OH MY GOSH!! HE'S A FRIGGING DOG!!!!
:eager:
And I love him...
:iconmonkeyloveplz:
I always loved the idea that, after he helps all these people... even after they give him a different name per episode, he moves on... He doesn't stop to get adopted, or even stop to take glory or credit! He just helps and then moves on, his good deed done for now
:love:


ALSO! THIS INTRO THEME IS A PART OF MY CHILDHOOD!
IT'S SO BUBBLY AND HAPPY THAT... C'MON JUST LISTEN!

also, here's another version of the theme song I love a bunch --> www.youtube.com/watch?v=banXT6…
I'LL FOLLOW YOU, HOBO!
:icononiskiplz:
There's a voice that keeps on callin' me
Down the road, that's where I'll always be
And every stop I make, I make a new friend
Can't stay for long
Just turn around,
And I'm gone again

Maybe tomorrow,
I'll wanna settle down
Until tomorrow,
I'll just keep movin' on

Down this road that never seems to end,
Where new adventure lies just around the bend!
So if you wanna join me for a while,
Just grab your hat
Come travel light
That's hobo style!

Maybe tomorrow,
I'll want to settle down
Until tomorrow,
The whole world is my home

So if you wanna join me for a while,
Just grab your hat
Come travel light
That's hobo style!

Maybe tomorrow,
I'll wanna settle down
Until tomorrow,
I'll just keep movin' on

...

Maybe tomorrow,
I'll wanna settle down
Until tomorrow,
I'll just keep movin' on

There's a world that's waiting to unfold
A brand new tale no one has ever told!
We've journeyed far but, I know it won't be long
We're almost there,
And we've paid our fare
With our hobo song

Maybe tomorrow,
I'll wanna settle down
Until tomorrow,
I'll just keep movin' on

So if you wanna join me for a while,
Just grab your hat
Come travel light
That's hobo style!

Maybe tomorrow,
I'll find what I call home...
Until tomorrow,
You know I'm free to roam
