  • Nature in all its untamed beauty. Peter tosses So-So from the time balloon to prevent imminent destruction. Educational and painfully real.

    While most shows turn cartoon animals into wise cracking human wannabes, Peter Potamus offered viewers a realistic portrayal of the hippopatumus. Peter\'s sacrifice for the good of the herd, though resulting in the death of So-So, was an act of bravery that you would never expect from Quick Draw McGraw or Breezely Bruin. It was sad to see So-So die in such a painful manner,but if Peter did not throw him from the balloon, then everyone would perish. Killing a sidekick is a decision that no cartoon animal should ever have to make. Rest in Peace, my Dear So-So. Oh so valiantly did you die.moreless
