Sam (aka Cyber Sam) is a laid-back but enthusiastic, brown-coated anthropomorphic "canine shamus". A warped sense of justice makes Sam the more passionate of the pair for their police work, possesses near encyclopedic amounts of knowledge, particularly on obscure topics, and is prone to long-winded sentences filled with elaborate terminology. Sam rarely loses his temper, and is able to react to panic-inducing situations with extreme calm. When he does get angry, Sam tends to react in a violent, uncharacteristically savage manner. Like other toons, he fears the dip.
