    Felix the Cat follows the offbeat adventures of that curious feline, Felix. The first episodes where shown in black & white silent cartoons before it's relaunch in the 1960s. Throughout the 1920s, Felix was arguably the most popular of all silent-era cartoon characters. His image was mass-merchandised and used to sell dolls, baby oil, and many other products. He even had his own brand of cigars. Not only that, but he was also the first thing to be broadcasted on television. Sadly, he has be all but forgotten about by most.moreless

    ABC (ended 1966)
    In the fall of 1964, primetime television was invaded by two clans of monsters who were definitely more funny than scary, The Munsters and The Addams Family. Ever quick to capitalize on the hot trend, Hal Seeger Productions sold The Milton The Monster Show to ABC for the 1965-1966 season. It would be Seeger's only network television series. Milton and his friends definitely fell into the more funny than scary category, thanks to some clever scripts by the team of Jack Mercer and Kin Platt, as well as Woody Kling. Milton himself was a giant Frankenstein-type, but since too much tenderness was added to the recipe by Milton's creators, Professor Weirdo and Count Kook, it resulted in Milton being a good-hearted monster. The late Bob McFadden did the voice for Milton as a good ol' Southern boy, not unlike Gomer Pyle. Milton's other friends included Heebie and Jeebie, as well as Abercrombie The Zombie. When Hiram The Fly puts on a pair of super glasses, he becomes the assertive superhero Fearless Fly in the most prolific supporting series from this show. Usually he hangs around the Sugar Bowl with his fly friends Flory and Horsey. Fearless adversaries include Dr. Goo Fee and (crossing over from his Milton role) Professor Weirdo. In the other supporting series, Stuffy Durma is a hobo who inherits ten million dollars, hires an advisor named Bradley Brinkley to handle his affairs, and opens his mansion to hobo friends like Ashcan Annie and Stu Mulligan. Most of the cartoons in this subseries were animated by New York cartooning legend Jim Tyer. Among the less-prevalent supporting series are Penny Penguin, Muggy-Doo, and Flukey Luke. The Milton The Monster Show aired on ABC from 1965 to 1968 and in syndication afterwards. It is still offered for syndication by Worldvision Enterprises.moreless

    Each episode starts off with Touché popping forth from inside his shell. He then gets a phone call from someone who's in dire straits. His phone usually rests upon a sterling silver plate. Touché accepts all major credit cards. Thus, Touché and Dum-Dum go off into the crime scene and do their shtick, which may involve swordplay, box-fighting, martial arts, tom-foolery, work with pyrotechnics/explosives ...and so on. "Touché-Away!!" The original show of 52 episodes first aired on TV between September 1962 and August 1963. Touché and Dum Dum have appeared together in only a handful of 1960s-early 1970s H-B comic books, and both also showed up on Hanna-Barbera's 50th anniversary special in 1988 (you may find that on video).moreless

    Dan Goldwater's famous red-headed teen from the comics comes to animated life in this series, via the Filmation cartoon studio. Some graphic liberties are taken, but for the most part, it was quite faithful to the comics.

    Two Archie cartoons are featured (in which Jughead gains a pet, a big, white sheepdog named Hot Dog). In between was a dance instruction segment (featuring movements no human could do without sustaining a traumatizing injury) followed by a song by the Archies. The show would beget a hit single in 1968, "Bang Shang-A-Lang," released by musical supervisor Don Kirschner on his self-labeled record company. Two bumpers featuring blackouts starring Jughead were also featured.

    The Archie show was so popular the first year that it would spawn a number of new versions, including The Archie Comedy Hour, Archie's Funhouse, Archie's TV Funnies and U.S. Of Archie.moreless

    CBS (ended 1969)
    Spun-off from ABC's prime time series The Bugs Bunny Show and the CBS Saturday morning series The Road Runner Show.The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour was the most succesful and popular attempt to bring the classic Looney Tunes cartoons to Saturday morning television where they became a mainstay for more than three decades. The series presented popular animated shorts which were originally produced for the silver screen, where they would appear right before a major motion picture, but here they were introduced by new segments as well as new title cards not shown in the original theatrical versions. Also included were Road Runner cartoons originally shown on the The Road Runner Show. Many people who grew up watching this show will most likely remember it by the opening theme "This Is It" performed by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck which was shown in black & white when it was created for The Bugs Bunny Show but then shown in color and remodified specifically for this Saturday morning series. In the late '70s The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour eventually became The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show when CBS decided to add an additional 30 minutes to each episode.moreless

The toon mouse was created by Robert Mckimson and Friz Freleng (until redesigned by Hawly Pratt) and first aired in the 1953 cartoon Cat-Tails for Two. He was originally voiced by Mel Blanc, who created Speedy's famous call "¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba (which is spanish for "Go on! Go on! Up!Up!). Speedy is always seen wearing a large yellow sombrero, a red bandana, and white shirt and pants. He gets is name from being the fastest mouse in all of mexico (though he runs faster than any human can too).

The 1955 the Speedy animated short won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject (cartoons). In recent years, the Speedy Gonzales cartoons sparked controversy for their depiction of stereotypes against latin americans, and thus taken off the air. However due to their popularity within the Latin community, they were brought back with a disclaimer.moreless

    Heckle and Jeckle are inseparable magpies (presumedly twin brothers), identical in appearance but distinguishably different in personality. Though both are remarkably witty, there are noticable differences between them, such as Heckle spoke with a Brooklyn (NY) accent, while Jeckle has a refined British accent. Together, they sought to con free meals and shelter especially out of the upper class, who in all honesty, presented little difficulty for the clever and mischievous birds.

    The synopses came from the Big Cartoon Database website. Deepest gratitude to whoever did these synopses!



    CAST:

    Heckle, magpie. Mischievous and witty, a tough bird with a Brooklyn accent.

    Jeckle, magpie. Heckle's twin who is also mischievous and witty, but is more refined and speaks with a British accent.

    Dimwit, hound. A hapless dog who is always the poor "victim" of Heckle and Jeckle.

    Spike, bulldog. Also a victim of the magpies, but tougher than Dimwit.



    YOUR HELP NEEDED! If you have a good screen-grab picture of Spike, I'd love to post it here! Please let me know if you do. Thanks in advance. (I have a screenshot of the dog, which in the comics was unofficially named Chesty. Copy and paste http://www.geocities.com/chris_30040/bulldog.jpg to see the shot, it's from the cartoon "Goony Golfers".

    Of additional note, a 1964 proposed cartoon, "Mechanical Trouble," was storyboarded but never animated.

    "Tijuana Toads" was DePatie-Freleng's fifth theatrical cartoon, which was released from August 6, 1969, through April 30, 1972, with total of 17 six and a half minutes cartoons. The series revolved around two toads, who is trying to live like toads, but was difficult because of location where they live (the title itself tells you where they live). Although they live in southern part of North America, they still manage to live like toads (catching flies, trying to escape from Crazylegs Crane, the cook, etc.), but in humorous way.

    The series was also became a ticket for other DFE cartoons. In "Hop and Chop", the two toads started chasing around a Japanese Beetle, who later became a character in DFE's 6th theatrical series "The Blue Racer", and speaking of the fast blue snake, the Blue Racer also first appeared in TT in the episode "A Snake in the Gracias". Crazylegs Crane received his own series after appearing in several toads episodes.

    The toads came back to TV in 1976 to be the part of "The Pink Panther Laugh and a Half Hour and a Half Show." Their only problem was that they thought these jokes were not PC and they were forced to re-title and re-dubb the toon to "Texas Toads" where the toads were renamed "Fatso" and "Banjo", and the settings were changed to Texas. Although there were no new episodes, they still created several new 30-second bridge played during the show. Although there were only 17 shorts, they still managed to become one of the top DFE cartoons.moreless

    The Hollywood Squares is a classic 1966 game show that mixes trivia with the classic strategy game, tic-tac-toe. Two contestants go head-to-head to try to get three Xs or Os in a row on a giant tic-tac-toe board. But it's not as easy as it sounds. Each space on the giant board contains a celebrity, who answers a trivia question whenever a contestant tries to win their space. The celebrity may know the answer to the trivia question, or they may make something up. The contestant has to decide whether the celebrity is answering truthfully or not, and they only get to occupy that space on the board if they choose correctly. The Hollywood Squares offers a chance to see some of Tinsel Town's biggest stars at their least scripted. This inventive game show became known for the unpredictability of the stars, who used the show to exhibit their real selves, without any media exaggeration. The Hollywood Squares featured many celebrities, including Billy Crystal, Vincent Price, Aretha Franklin, Joan Rivers, Eva Gabor, Don Knotts, and many more.moreless

    CBS (ended 1961)
    Petite young French girl Angel has just moved to America and married her American sweetheart John Smith. Adjusting to American life is not easy, but it's very funny! Angel was created by Jess Oppenheimer, who also served as executive producer and who earlier had created and produced the iconic I Love Lucy, and there were similarities between the two series. French actress Annie Fargé starred as naive but well-meaning French-born housewife Angelique "Angel" Smith, living in California with her American husband, architect John Smith, played by Marshall Thompson, who later starred in the CBS adventure series Daktari . Like Lucy Ricardo, Angel would sometimes find herself involved in innocent mischief, and like Ricky Ricardo, she had occasional difficulty making herself understood in English, with comical results. The Smiths' neighbors were Susie (played by Doris Singleton, who earlier had an occasional role on I Love Lucy as Carolyn Appleby) and her husband George (character actor Don Keefer), who were roughly equivalent to the Mertzes. Despite the clout provided by Oppenheimer, whose named and animated image were featured prominently alongside the show's two main stars in the opening, and by Annie Fargé being hailed by Time magazine as the most promising newcomer to television situation comedy, Angel did not fare well against the competition, mainly two other sitcoms, ABC's My Three Sons and NBC's Bachelor Father, and was cancelled after one season.moreless
