Bulldog

The sobriquet of police detective Bill “Bulldog” Brennan (Alan Hewitt), a human bloodhound who sniffed out suspicious goings-on at the house of newspaper reporter Tim O’Hara (Bill Bixby) who was hiding a Martian (Ray Walston) on the sitcom MY FAVORITE MARTIAN/CBS/1963-66.

Note: Bulldog was also the nickname of a rough and tumble construction worker played by Noble Willingham in the sitcom WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS/ABC/1980

And radio talk show personality Bulldog Briscoe (Dan Butler) was a skirt-chasing (he loved women who didn’t wear underwear) host of a Seattle sports call-in show on the sitcom FRASIER/NBC/1993-2004.
