Super Dave: Daredevil for Hire is an animated television series produced by DIC Animation City and Reteitalia, S.p.A., in association with Spanish network Telecinco.

In the United States, the show premiered on September 12, 1992 on FOX. The series was cancelled after its first season, but a special based on the series titled The Super Dave Superbowl of Knowledge aired on January 29, 1994. It was later shown in reruns on Toon Disney from 1998-2002.

The show starred and was based on the comedy of Bob Einstein and his Super Dave Osborne persona. Both Bob Einstein and Art Irizawa provided the voices for Super Dave and his assistant, Fuji Hakayito, and also appeared as their characters in live-action skits which ended each episode.

Halfway through the show’s initial run, Irizawa was asked to modify his voice for Fuji, following complaints to Fox from Asian-American groups that the character was an offensive stereotype. Irizawa subsequently re-recorded his dialogue for all of the show’s episodes.
