Dog the Bounty Hunter Theme Song

Performed By: "Ozzy Osbourne"

There's fear and darkness all around you
The criminals are on the run
No use in hiding in the dark
I'll hunt you down 'cause I'm the Dog

I'm the Dog
The big bad Dog
The bounty hunter

Dog the Bounty Hunter Trivia

Duane "Dog" Chapman first appeared as a TV bounty hunter on an episode of another A&E reality series titled, "Take This Job" in 2003. It was a series about people engaged in unusual jobs. His segment was so popular that he got his own series!

Most of the bounty hunts take place in the Hawaiian Islands but a few have been shot in Dog's home state of Colorado and in San Francisco, California.

Most of those who the Chapmans pursue secured their bail bonds through "Da Kine Bail Bonds" that has offices both on the Big Island in Hawaii and in Denver, Colorado.

If you would like to learn more about what events led to Dog's life as a bounty hunter, he authored an autobiography titled, "You Can Run But You Can't Hide" in 2007. It also includes stories of his most exciting hunts including the capture of serial rapist Andrew Luster.

The apprehension of Andrew Luster is undoubtedly Dog's most famous chase! It was featured in a 2003 TV movie with the long title of, "A Date with Darkness: The Trial and Capture of Andrew Luster". Luster was the heir to the Max Factor Cosmetics fortune and had fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution. Dog caught him and brought him back to the U.s. and then was himself declared a fugitive from justice by the Mexican government because he did not hand over Luster to Mexican police! Mexican authorities even tried to get the U.S. to extradite Dog and his crew back to Mexico to stand trial! In the end the charges were dropped and the case made Dog a legend, famous, and a TV star!

Dog the Bounty Hunter was taken off the air temporarily in 2007 when a recording of Dog using racial slurs was made public. Dog apologized and promised to make amends for the slurs and after overwhelming support from black leaders and fans the series returned.

It would be pretty difficult to deny that Dog is a unique individual. As such, he's been parodied on many other television series including Reno 911 (in the episode, "Bounty Hunter Tommy Hawk"), Psych (in the episode, "Bounty Hunters"), South Park (in the episode, "Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy"), American Dad (in the episode, "Joint Custody"), and Family Guy (in the episode; "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side"). Dog and his fellow bounty hunters were also parodied in the June 2007 issue of Mad Magazine.
