Title character of a series of cartoon
s entitled "The World of Commander McBragg". The Commander (a retired Naval officer) is a stereotypical upper-class British blowhard
who forever sits in his library telling wild
and highly improbable
stories about his many adventure
s. All of these stories end with him saving the day by some amazing feat of strength or cleverness. At the end of each tale
his unnamed listener (a white-haired crony of the Commander's) would make a terrible pun
, to which the Commander would respond with a dry "Quite."
The cartoons originally appeared on the Tennessee Tuxedo show, and then on Underdog. I meself have only seen them via the Rocky and Bullwinkle show.
"Good HEAvens, Commander -- what EVER did you do?"
