The DOGFATHER is the brilliant mash up of Futurama and The Godfather franchises. Featuring Philip J. Fry and his ever loyal mutt Seymour.

TheĀ Enter The Dogfather T-shirt design is an excellent mash up of The Godfather and Futurama.

The concept is hits people right in the feels with Fry's loyal and loving mutt Seymour taking the place of the Godfather's kitty. Therefore, with Fry taking the place of the Godfather one can't help but chuckle and want to cry at the same time. For anyone that hasn't seen the referenced Futurama Episode, check out the episode entitled Jurassic Bark. The dyslexic use of the word Dog rather than God works great too on another comedic level.

The Godfather As for the artwork. It's tight. Firstly, the almost black and white tone is a perfect tribute for the Godfather's original image (shown above). The shading, the highlights, all top notch. Secondly, the seriously expressions and tone given to Fry is hilarious in its own right. But as mentioned earlier, the design elements bring a slew of mixed emotions making it bittersweet. Considering that Fry's character is more of the Slapstick type, this is a feat in and of itself. Thirdly, Having the dog's tongue stick out as bright Red really adds emphasis to Seymour and his emotion. Almost animating the t-shirt. Finally, it is as if Matt Groening and crew designed this themselves. They were always masterfully pulling on the audience's heart strings. This design is that good in terms of art and concept. A great tee for anyone who likes the dog that waited, especially.

Bottom Line

The Products and retailer Ript Apparel are very high quality at fantastic prices starting at $13. You can find some exclusive prints here that the other sites will never carry. As for the tees, the blanks are very comfortable, they breathe well and are lighter than you’d probably expect. The fabric material is 100% Combed Ringspun Cotton and it is as durable as an organic material can be.

As for the printing method, they use the superior old fashioned screen printing technique. The art should last a while before it starts to fade, peel, or flake away just like any other screen printed tee that you’ve ever owned. To make the designs last, do as Ript recommends and Wash the tees inside-out (especially for the first wash) to avoid any harmful interaction with the inks during the washing and drying process. Baby and toddler garments should be washed before their initial wearing due to any possible residue left from the printing process. To avoid fabric shrinkage and possible design flaking, air or hang dry rather than use a machine dryer.

Since they are screen printed, this means that usually there is no choice of a fabric color, what you see at time of sale is all that there is for the designs.

The sizing is great for the most part. Women might want to consider ordering men’s tees if they need sizes larger than 2 XL. But as far as the Men’s sizes there are plenty of options to choose from. Children’s apparel are also ranged well. Overall, we feel that this Enter The DOGFATHER T-shirt is a worthy purchase and therefore should not result in any buyer’s remorse.
