Seven different cartoon stars appear in their own series of animated shorts each week. "Milton the Monster": Professor Weirdo, the mad scientist, and his assistant, Count Kook, live on Horror Hill with the three monsters they created: Heebie (a skull-faced monster with long hair and formal dress), Jeebie (a green-furred creature with one eye and one sharp tooth) and the uselessly kind and gentle Milton the Monster. "Fearless Fly": Hiram is a meek, mild and passive little fly until he dons a special pair of eyeglasses that give him super-powers. The inscrutable Tibetan wizard, Doctor Goo Fee, and his faithful servant, Gung Ho, make every effort to destroy the super-insect. "Flukey Luke": The cowboy private eye, Flukey Luke, fights the mobster, Spider Webb, with the help of his trusty horse, Pronto, and his faithful friend, Two Feathers, the American Indian with an Irish accent. "Muggy-Do, Boy Fox": The wily boy fox has an endless number of schemes to make a dishonest buck. "Penny ...Written by

This was one of the better cartoon shows to join the Saturday morning line-up of the now classic Saturday Morning Cartoons. If you didn't enjoy this era of the cartoons you cannot possibly give a proper review of any of them. I for one found this particular show to be quite a refreshing change. It seemed to poke a little fun at some of the other weekly shows including those scheduled during weekly prime time. Even in so doing they managed to maintain for the most part a simple and innocent story-line for children so as not to lose their attention or understanding. When this show debuted I was 12 years of age and beginning to outgrow the Saturday morning line-up. Because it was so different and maintaining an innocence it caught my attention and became the one Saturday Morning cartoons that I looked forward to. Being a 12 year old male at the time and soon to turn 13 I had to try to enjoy this show in secret and with an 11 year old brother that was hard to do at times. Off the beaten path but still quite cute and entertaining I highly recommend it and hope you don't find my taste to far off 'the beaten path'.
