File:Here Comes The Grump 8128.jpg

Here Comes the Grump is a DePatie-Freleng Enterprises Saturday Morning Cartoon that ran in 1969-1970 on NBC. Princess Dawn, her Non-Human Sidekick Bip, and ordinary Earth teenager Terry Dexter are being chased by the villainous Grump and his klutzy Dragon. Each episode takes them to a new locale, where the heroes enlist the aid of the locals to try and get The Grump off their trail and maybe learn where to find the magical crystal key that will lift the Grump's spell of gloom from Princess Dawn's kingdom.


Here Comes the Grump provides examples of:

 In a magic place

There's a princess caught in a chase

But no matter how fast she goes, right on her heels and toes

Here comes the Grump! Here comes the Grump! Here comes the Grump!

  • Expy: The Grump is heavily based on Yosemite Sam, another Friz Freleng character. The dragon is based on Sam's dragon from "Knighty Knight Bugs".
  • Hair of Gold: Princess Dawn, of course.
  • Here We Go Again: An atypical case in that the Grump usually catches up with our heroes again at the beginning of the episode, rather than the end.
  • Ironic Echo Cut: From "The Lemonade Sea":

 Princess Dawn: Do you suppose we've given Grump the slip?

(cut to Grump)

Grump: You will never give Grump the slip!
