I saw the 1980s London at some shopping mall when I was a kid. From what I recall, there was London, and then a bunch of London clones that were used as stand-ins, possibly siblings. Not exactly a reliable source (I was pretty young), but just thought I'd share. bobanny 06:24, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

theres a song by Loki a scottish rapper called littelest hobo bout him bein homeless

70's Show[edit]

The statue that appeared in that episode was just a small, human homeless person (hence calling it the littlest hobo). Does this really have to do with the Dog known as the Littlest Hobo?

I found this clip on Youtube to illustrate:

Unless there's some connection, other than the name, I'm unaware of, I think that section should be removed.

Any objections to removing this section then? Merc 2k 02:38, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Edit Suggestion[edit]

I think you are forgetting a BIG part of the show: The theme song!!!! That was the thing that really gripped people and made the series memorable and sad too......-- (talk) 15:59, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

It's already mentioned. - Dudesleeper / Talk 19:04, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

I am not going to edit this page myself as I do not have any reliable source of information, but I beleive that in the 1980's series, The Littlest Hobo did in fact have a partially golden coat, so somebody may want to affirm this and change the Corner Gas tribute... That is, if anyone really cares. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tons377 (talkcontribs) 20:58, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

VCi link?[edit]

Apparently the publisher and/or distributor of Little Hobo DVD is VCi. I was thinking of adding link to their Hobo page ( ) to External link section, but was wondering if that would be appropriate. --EarthFurst (talk) 17:31, 5 November 2008 (UTC)


Okay, buck 45 mentioned on his radio show that the littlest hobo was revealed to be an alien in the last episode of the most recent series. Does anyone know if this is true?--Matt D (talk) 08:59, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

That would be mental. The last epsiode of series 6 has the Hobo shipwrecked on an Alaskan island [1]. Maybe he's got mixed up with Benji, Zax & the Alien Prince?

Haven't seen the last episode of the sixth season but I believe the above poster isn't quite right. In the sixth season two part episode "Voyageurs" Hobo and a Canadian family get shipwrecked on an island with a Russian test pilot somewhere between Russia and I assume Alaska but the episode ends with everyone being rescued. The Canadians and Hobo go one one rescue boat and the Russian goes on another rescue boat. Hobo is rescued and we can pretend without hesitation that he goes on the help more people in need when he returns to Canada and the US and maybe elsewhere...DJParker39 (talk) 00:37, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Is London the dog dead or alive?[edit]

All the dogs used in the series are definitely dead. It's been more then 140+ dog years I'm sure that there are dogs related to London still roaming the Earth but I'm not quite sure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Save us21 (talkcontribs) 01:51, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Need info. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:32, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

That is so sad. Yeah I'm sure they are all dead now.

As for the 70's series. A friend of mind saw the filming of the first episode. It was in Toronto on McCaul Street where you see London comes out of the basement of a house/building (which use to be an art supply store btw. Dont know if it still is). The small building is behind the Ontario Art Gallery. All the dogs from all the seperate series/movie were great. (May they all Rest In Peace now.)

The Genesis Tapes[edit]

I revised the original entry under Hobo's origin after watching both episodes of The Genesis Tapes (thanks CTV for airing them!). I wasn't keen on the idea that Hobo was some genetic mutation, either natural or man made as the original entry had seemed to indicate there was no doubt on the issue with this episode. The scientist and the reporter in the episode are theorizing and there's no definitive proof either one or way the other as to what Hobo is. Thus, Hobo can still be what you want him to be, unknown force for good or genetic evolution of the dog - the main part the story did not give a definitive answer and Hobo's origins are still unresolved - a good thing in my books.

Littest Hobo "Popular Culture" section?[edit]

Theme song of The Littlest Hobo is seen at the end of a "Trailer Park Boys" episode. Source: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thdegy (talkcontribs) 03:05, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

A "Popular Culture" section might be worthwhile. In addition to the stuff already in the article, Volkswagen Canada is featuring the show's title card in a commercial.Damnedfan1234 (talk) 12:17, 4 February 2018 (UTC)


The info that says 114 episodes in 6 seasons is for the second series only. What about the first series? 2001:56A:F414:D300:F458:9015:2691:2844 (talk) 20:36, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
