I Remember
23 February 2008 | by wsutton_49See all my reviews

I remember this show, when it first aired as a Saturday morning show. Never missed it. I was 7 or 8 at the time, have always had the words to the theme in my head, but could have sworn it debuted in 1956, based on where we lived at the time. (My dad was in the AF & I remember shows, music, fads, etc. based on where we lived since we moved every 2 or 3 years.) At any rate, I remember it was about a cat & a dog who were best friends, with the dog looking out for the cat. Episodes were introduced by a live actor/narrator/host. Seems like the host was the same voice heard as the narrator of most HB cartoons after that. Figured out later this was the first TV cartoon series from HB after they left MGM, where they produced/directed the best of all the Tom & Jerry cartoons. They had developed a simpler method to make cartoons quicker & cheaper, almost eliminating the need for large art departments. In that respect this little cartoon series helped bring about the decline and eventual end of large studio cartoon departments at MGM, WB, etc. Soon after this success they followed with the Huckleberry Hound Show on weekday afternoons, followed by Yogi Bear's own show and all their other afternoon and Saturday shows, many of which were almost copies of some of the earlier MGM cartoon series. Of course they also made history with the first prime time cartoon series, The Flintstones, in 1960. While not a copy of an earlier cartoon it was loosely based on 'The Honeymooners'.
