Famous Basset Hounds ΔΙΑΣΗΜΑ ΜΠΑΣΣΕΤ ΧΟΥΝΤ
In 1928, Time magazine featured a Basset Hound on the front cover.(ΤΟ 1928 ΤΟ TIME MAGAZIN ΕΙΧΕ ΣΤΟ ΕΞΏΦΥΛΛΌ ΕΝΑ ΜΠΑΣΣΕΤ ΧΑΟΥΝΤ) The accompanying story was about the 52nd annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden as if observed by the Basset Hound puppy. This prestige is often seen as the event which made the Basset Hound a popular part of American pop culture.

Basset Hounds in films (ΣΕ ΤΑΙΝΙΕΣ)include Fred, the companion of Cledus in the 1977 movie "Smokey and the Bandit" and Gabriel, Batou's Basset Hound in "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence"; Gabriel is in fact director Mamoru Oshii's real life pet, and is included in many of his films. In a scene most likely referencing Smokey and the Bandit, a truck driver has a Basset Hound beside him in American Pie 2.(ΕΧΟΥΝ ΠΑΙΞΕΙ ΠΕΡΙΣΤΑΣΙΑΚΟΥΣ ΡΟΛΛΟΥΣ) Basset Hounds are featured prominently in off-beat roles as well - one gets hit by a car and survives in "The Rage: Carrie 2", and in the film Monkeybone a Basset has its own nightmarish dream sequence. Finally, Basset Hounds appear in such other mainstream films as "An American Werewolf in Paris", "Nanny McPhee", and "Spider-Man 2".
