Show Summary

Based on the Belgian comic strip by Andre Franquin, Marsupilami came to television as part of Disney's Raw Toonage. When that program left the air, Marsupilami gained its own half-hour series, sharing air time with other shorts Sebastian the Crab and Shnookums and Meat. Marsupilami ("Mars" to his friends) was a yellow marsupial with black spots and a twenty-five-foot prehensile tail he could use to climb, fight, swing, or any number of things. Mars was the fast talker; his gorilla friend Maurice was the strong, silent, stupid type. The two wreaked wacky havoc in the jungle, while avoiding jut-jawed, torso-heavy human Norman. Two French Canadian adaptations of the comics have been produced, in part by Marathon(Totally Spies, Martin Mystery), in 2000 and 2002. They are far closer the original series.

  • Great times, Great Memory.

    The show was great. I love it when Marsupilami can speak. (And not just saying Houba!) Anyways, Marsupilami is a yellow, spotted, long-tail marsupial. He lives in a jungle with a purple gorilla friend, Maurice. He is so funny. I think Marsupilami is a great Disney character. I like him more than Sonic SatAM. I want to know why everybody is saying that he cannot talk. He can talk. I have seen the show many times on television. Marsupilami first appeared on Raw Toonage. Marsupilami is the one funniest character. BTW, He is very crazy as well. I love him.moreless
  • Easily forgotten, but a classic in my mind...

    Marsupilami was a Disney cartoon that followed the basic Disney cartoon structure of the 90's. You have your main character who is a one of a kind animal called a marsupilami. He's lika a monkey with cheetah skin and an incredibly long tail that can do lot's of stuff (which also seems to change size for the animators sake). Then there's a big fat mean guy who wants to destroy his home for some reason... in every episode. There's really no more to it other than that. It fit the Disney format so there was familiar sounds and music, and familiar plots. But the main thing to remember that despite all it's likenesses to other shows, it was different, and there were original characters. It wasn't just another adaptation of Disney villain "Pete" messing stuff up for the main character. While a lot of shows like this have another show hidden in between the main show, Marsupilami did too. The middle toon would sometimes feature Sebastian from the Little Mermaid! Woa!! Now that was the best part of Marsupilami. Sebastian would always somehow meet up with the evil chef that tries to cook him. There was even a short time where Pizza Hut promoted the show with their Personal Pan Kid's Meals. While it might not have been a huge change of pace, or a huge hit for Disney, I was watching and I liked it. I gave it an 8 for great original characters, and Sebastian cartoons.moreless
