The Exterminator

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again!

SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU? (Basically ersatz DOBIE GILLIS characters crossed with the old I LOVE A MYSTERY radio show plus a semi-anthropomorphic dog thrown-in for good measure.) was a big hit for the studio in 1969. Not only did it get a second production season, which was kinda’ rare for Saturday Morning Cartoons, but is spawned a slew of follow-up series, one-shot video features, and even big-budget live-action movie adaptations.

Scooby and the gang also became the go-to template for many of HB’s ‘toons through the ’70s, as YOGI BEAR had been for the ’60s. Just rename the Meddling Kids, and swap-out the dog for a semi-anthropomorphic car, phantom, cat, shark, or even a goofier-looking dog, and there’s your new show. Heck, even the Justice League got a pair of Meddling Kids and their dog when HB took over the superheroes’ license with SUPERFRIENDS.

Scooby’s second program, the NEW SCOOBY-DOO MOVIES, had the mystery adventures extended to an hour-long, and featured guest stars. And what a mixed-bad that lot was! Sometimes real people, like Cass Elliot, Davy Jones, or Jerry Reed, voiced by their real-world selves. Sometimes fictional characters, like Batman, the Addams Family, or the cast of other HB Scooby-esque cartoons. Sometimes a splitting of the difference, with the onscreen personas of real people voiced by impersonators, as with the THREE STOOGES and LAUREL AND HARDY due to the originals being retired or dead.

This October 1973 episode features Don Adams voicing himself in the style of his GET SMART character. For some reason, even though the kids recognize him as a TV star, he’s working as an exterminator trying to get rid of the termites in a haunted house so the bank can sell it. C’mon! His post Agent 86 career wasn’t THAT bad! More from the OldHorseman.

Wonderful World Of Color

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again!

Okay, cheating just a wee bit here, as this was originally from the other side of the weekend. BitChute viewer Alkaline777 requested the brainy uncle of a certain animated, white waterfowl a few weeks ago. So here’s the first appearance of Professor Ludwig Von Drake!

Uncle Walt’s showcase had already been a staple of Sunday evening TV programming for years before color broadcasting really started to catch-on. So he moved his series over to NBC, which was on the cutting edge of the technology. The premier on the network featured Walt’s first created-for-TV cartoon character, who served as a co-host. The first half of this episode is a veritable infomercial (decades before those became a thing) for color televisions… The leading manufacturer of which happened to be NBC’s parent corporation.

The second half features an Oscar-nominated educational-ish ‘toon from a couple years earlier starring Ludwig’s nephew. “Donald In Mathmagicland” is the very first in all of Disney’s stable of cartoon shorts to be aired on TV in color.

From September 1961. More from the OldHorseman.

For Scent-imental Reasons

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again!

I was going to bring in a certain hyper-educated quacker uncle from the Mouse’s domain, as requested by BitChute viewer Alkaline777… But, since CancelCulture has set its sights on Toondom’s ultimate mascot of masculine self-confidence, I’m gonna feature him first.

Before the Leftards decided to attack Pepe for “glorifying rape-culture”, the TV networks had butchered this film pretty heavily for suicidal elements. Shabby way to treat an Oscar-winning picture! Of course, we’ll be having none of that here!

This is the first one to have the tables turned on the amorous Mephitis. (Weird that people think the blue paint somehow cloaked his scent, when the ‘toon makes it clear that Penelope’s snoot is too clogged up for her to smell anything.)

Trivia: Skunks are a North American species. The European polecat found in France is not black/white, and is unrelated.

Directed by Chuck Jones in 1949. More from the OldHorseman.

Popeye The Sailor Revived

The Cartoon Renewal Studios has restored, remastered and colorized the 1937 two-reel cartoon Popeye The Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves. Watch as Popeye, accompanied by Olive Oyl and Wimpy, challenge the dreaded Abu Hassan and his force of forty thieves.

Some will complain and rage over the colorized processing, but the sad fact is: Most kids nowadays will never watch black and white cartoons. So if you want younger viewers to see these classic works, they’ve got to not only be restored to improve their quality but also colorized.

The work here is pretty dang sweet! This vintage Fleischer Studios cartoon, originally distributed by Paramount Pictures, springs back to life! Direction is by Dave Fleischer, with Jack Mercer supplying vocals for Popeye and Mae Questal for Olive Oyl.
