American crime series that has "The Red Fox of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police" as a recurring feature. The Red Fox is a R.C.M.P. officer noted for his legendary tracking skills and ability to live off the land. He patrolled the Arctic with his dog, Shaggy. The depiction of Inuit and Native people in the series often reflects the stereotypes prevalent in the popular culture of the day. (Information taken from the Red Fox entry in the Comic Vine Web site, available online at https://discoverarchives.library.ualberta.ca/index.php/red-fox-of-royal-canadian-mounted-police/edit [accessed 17 January 2017]).
