Tusky Husky is a character in Krypto the Superdog and a member of The Dog Star Patrol. He is a blue Siberian Husky who speaks with a French Canadian accent. He is a good-natured dog and loves to drill through things with his massive tooth.
The changes in his appearance between the TV show and the Superboy comic books, issues 131 and 132, were rather minimal. His color scheme was solid yellow rather than blue and white, and his tusk is much longer in the comic books.
Fisher Price made a prototype for a Tusky Husky action figure, and it was going to be part of the third series in the Superdog toy line. However, before the action figure could be put into regular production, the toy line was discontinued. The prototype for the Tusky Husky action figure, as well as the prototype for a Mammoth Mutt action figure (which also never went into production), are now in the hands of a private collector. Sadly, photos of either prototype are not known to exist.
