History[edit]

Touché Turtle (voiced by Bill Thompson) and Dum Dum (voiced by Alan Reed) were a pair of heroic fencers who battle villains and heroically saves kings, queens, maidens and others in distress. Touché was the brave and dashing leader, whereas Dum Dum the sheepdog 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 firebreathing dragon, a thing to tie up an octopus, and a fencing foil made of a nonconductive material against a sentient lightning bolt.
