Watts and Vicky, I just saw this and am so sorry for your loss. We rented a house next door to your one summer in Cape Cod. Janet Foglia (NY)
I am thankful for the simple lessons on good and bad, right and wrong, respect for authority that those characters taught that seems to be lost in todays entertainment. I hope that you as a family continue in "the peace of God that excels all thought".(Philippians 4:7)
May our Creator who watches over us grant the family and friends the peace and comfort you need to get through these difficult times. May Mr. Biggers rest in peace.
Vicky and Watts, I am so sorry for your loss.
Marrianne Procopio (Forestdale MA)
Watts and Vicky, so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. My thoughts are with you both.
When you think of it, we are all "underdogs"! All of us are disadvantaged because we all get sick and eventually die! Mr. Biggers was a wonderful cartoonist who also was a wonderful man. Our Creator wants us to have a perfect, happy, unending life and He has made provision to do just that. And he informs us of His loving intentions in such verses as this one: "and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more. Neither will mourning, nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Then, there will be no more "underdogs"!
May You And Your Family Find Comfort During This Time of Sorrow Loved Sweet Polly And Underdog Great Cartoon. Psalm 68:20
To William Watts,
You did a great job creating my favorite cartoon Character Underdog. I just want to say Good Job well Done! My prayers are with your family. Lisa Weiner
Watts and Vicky, thinking of both of you in this difficult time. Your dad brought a lot of happiness to the world
The world has lost a kind and gentle man. I will always have such wonderful memories of spending time with Watts and Nancy, singing, laughing and listening to Roy Orborson.
As the bible says at Luke 43:23 we will see Willam in papadise
We just saw Watts in October and he was so happy and he played a song for us and He told us a story about how he used to play music on top of cars at the Varsity. I felt like he had lots of stories to tell and I'm sad that I didn't get to hear more of them. Rest easy Watts.
Dear Family God bless Mr Biggers for the joy that was placed in our lives with his talent. I pray that he's resting in The Lord
Watts Biggers was the most elegant man I have ever known. He brought no harm to this world and left it better off. No one ever feared him...in business...in love or life. His intellect, coupled with great humility, was boundless. His kindness evolved ....aided greatly by Nancy. His hopes remain through Watts Jr and Victoria...whom he adored. I am so sorry that I was not at his funeral...had I known ...I would have travelled instantly. This weekend I will somehow find a copy of Roy Orbison's Tribute...and toast my friend.
Underdog was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. Thank you so much and may God bless you.
We will miss Watts very much. He was thoughtful, loving and such a great inspiration to me, my family and all those Underdog (and Tennessee Tuxedo) fans in the world. We're grateful for the time we had with him.
Buck thank you for sharing your creativity with the world!! Because of you, many movies have been created based on your Underdog creation!! You will truly be missed
Watts, Vicky & Nancy, We are so sorry for your loss,please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. He was a wonderful man,and he will always be remembered.

I love his Under Dog. The new movie is good also. I grew up watching UD
Me,My Mom And Dad Had Used To Watch Underdog As A Toddler In The 1960's
My condolences go out to the family. I loved Underdog as a kid. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Biggers last Fall at Battles Buick GMC, where he was a customer. He seemed like a very nice guy, and he will be missed. God Bless and sympathy to his family from the crew at Battles.
We are sitting here on cape cod in your home ~watching the waves crash against the shore remembering you. You are missed by all so much already. The boys loved you so much. Thank you for always beings so loving to our children and to us. Thank you for the gift of piano lessons and the love of music and poetry. Our family was blessed to have you. Xoxox
Buck Biggers was partially responsible for Under Dog and King Leonardo - what a fabulous legacy.
Thank you for your brilliant work, Mr. Biggers, and three cheers from Bongo Congo!
Sincere condolences on the loss of someone who provided such delightful, funny and excellent entertainment to so many. Wish today,s children particularly had a hero Underdog like I happily did for many years .
As children, we hardly ever care about the creators of Saturday morning cartoon shows. It's only when we are older that we pay attention to such matters. Mr. Biggers was a real talent. He will be missed by friend and family alike as well as his many fans.
We were classmates at North Georgia College in the 1940's. He always seemed to live life to the fullest. A wonderful person to have known.
We will miss you.Thank you for making us laugh( there is no need to fear,underdog is here).
May God be with your family n may you rest in peace.We love you....
The thing that I always loved about these cartoons is that there was so much humor for adults in them that was totally lost on us as children. Watching them again after we were older was like getting brand new shows all over again!
one of my favorites of all time,i can not thank you enough,there should be a classic cartoon network to show these old cartoons,on a scale from 1 to 10 this cartoon was a 10, underdog will never die,this is not a time to be sad,this is a celebration of a great man who put alot of joy in kids lives,may god bless your family
i was a fan of underdog. i remenber the show as if it was on yestraday. my condolence to his friends and family.
i loved & was a fan of underdog & dr barsinister and its sad that mr Biggers isnt around but may he rest in peace
In heaven they are saying " there's no need to fear, Underdog is hear". RIP Mr Biggers and God bless to your family.
I did not know him as a friend, but I loved watching Underdog when I was little. May he rest in peace and we will see him again.

I have always loved Underdog and I never knew it was William Watts Biggers had helped in creating him. I love that movie. I hope that William Watts Biggers had a life well lived because he created one of the most popular movies that children today still loves.
Thank you for the fabulous childhood memories. I shall cherish them always. May you rest in peace.
My deepest sympathy to Nancy and the Biggers family. I collaborated with Nancy a few years back on BNN TV with the Positive People project, which I enjoyed very much. Thanks to Buck and Nancy for bringing a ray of light into the world.

I liked "Underdog." I loved "Tennessee Tuxedo." I remember watching both with my dad on our B&W TV, while my mom mad Sunday dinner. Now, like so many of my childhood companions, the creator is now gone and a small part of me goes with him. Happily, the characters and work still lives on.
My condolences to Mr. Biggers' children, companion, other family and friends. I hope you can take some comfort in knowing the happiness Mr. Biggers brought to both children and their parents.
