The Ant and The Ardvark was a DePatie Freleng production, released through United Artists and was originally intended to be shown in theaters during Saturday Matinees or in between the double features. Eventually, like most other theatrical cartoons, after a few years they found their way to TV. Although only 17 were made, this was a fun cartoon and when put with other United Artist cartoons which had a similar look, most notabley The Pink Panther and The Inspector, made for a good 30 minute Saturday morning show that the whole family could enjoy.
Overall, these were good, clever cartoons that remain pretty fresh and watchable today. It's a shame there weren't more made.
