Touché Turtle and Dum Dum (pronounced too-shay turtle) is one of the segments from The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series, produced by Hanna-Barbera in 1962.

This show was originally on The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series along with Wally Gator and Lippy the Lion & Hardy Har Har.


Touché Turtle

Touché Turtle (voiced by Bill Thompson) and Dum Dum (voiced by Alan Reed) were a pair of heroic fencers who battle villains and heroically save kings, queens, maidens and others in distress. Touché was the brave and dashing leader, whereas Dum Dum was more of a simple-minded follower. Brandishing his trusty sword and exclaiming his catchphrase, "Touché away!"

During the run of the show, Touché Turtle used a standard fencing foil as a weapon. But in the opening title sequence, Touché Turtle used a firehose against a fire-breathing dragon, quick evasive moves to tie up an octopus, and a fencing foil made of a nonconductive material against a sentient lightning bolt.
