Country of origin:
Old Trusty was one of the characters introduced in Disney's cartoon Lady and the Tramp
(voice by Bill Baucom). When Lady, Tramp and especially Scamp were transferred to comics, he was used as one of the regular characters in the Scamp stories. Trusty occurred with the rest of the characters from Scamp until 1979 after which no stories have been made. Like many other characters from the original cast he was also in the cartoon Lady and the Tramp II - Scamp's Adventure
(voice by Jeff Bennett).
Being a character in the immensely popular Lady and the Tramp
merchandise with Old Trusty was inevitable, though is hasn't been much. Mostly it has been figurines and pins.
