Where's Huddles

Show Summary

An animated ten-episode CBS summer replacement series for The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour in the summer of 1970, Where's Huddles? was produced by Hanna-Barbera and was similar in format to The Flintstones. Some of the similar elements were: a two married couple structure, domestic and work related scenes, a snickering dog (a la Muttley) and even the talents of Mel Blanc, playing one of the leads. Ed Huddles, the quarterback of the NFL team Rhinos and his wife Marge lived next door to Bubba McCoy, the center and his wife Penny. Their next door neighbor, Claude Pertwee (voice of Paul Lynde) was a priss who hated football. The show was even rerun on late Sunday afternoons on CBS in the summer of 1971.

  • A bad excuse for a prime time cartoon.

    3.2
    In the early 60s, Hanna-Barbera was churning out prime time cartoons like nobody's business, with The Flintstones their crowning jewel. After that was canceled, their energies were strictly focused on Saturday morning fare.



    In an attempt to duplicate their earlier prime time successes, Where's Huddles? fails with a resounding thud. Even H-B's worst cartoons were funnier than this. Huddles? limps through its ten episodes with jokes flatter than the Earth imagined by King Ferdinand. The animation was nothing spectacular; similar to what we'd see that fall on CBS's "Harlem Globetrotters" show (which was indeed head-and-shoulders funnier than this).



    Boomerang had been running repeats of this show on weekends. However it was on at 3 in the morning when nobody's watching, so we're spared from the ennui.moreless
