Storyline

King Leonardo the lion is the inept ruler of the land of Bongo Congo. Aided by the skunk Odie Colognie, Leonardo tried to stop the evil plans of Biggy Rat, who kept trying to install Leo's brother Itchy on the throne. Other short subject featured in this animated series included Tooter Turtle (a sort of reptilian Walter Mitty), who was granted wishes by Wizard the Lizard. The magic words "Drizzle Drazzle Druozzle Drome, time for this one to come home!" would bring Tooter back from his magic misadventures. Written by Mike Konczewski

Total Television's First Successful Show
11 August 2009 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

King Leonardo and His Short Subjects (aka The King and Odie) was the first show produced by Total Television Productions and it turned out to be a success. Even though the animation was limited and produced by the same company who animated Rocky and Bullwinkle, the plots were pretty much the same as King Leonardo and his valet Odie Cologne consistently foiled the plans of Biggy Rat to put the king's brother Itchy on the throne.

There were also the other segments, including The Hunter and Tooter Turtle, best known for the line from Mr. Wizard the Lizard when things got rough for Tooter "Drizzle drazzle druzzle drone. Time for this one to come home." Another segment was Twinkles the Elephant, based on the General Mills (who sponsored the show) character.

But to me, one of the keys to the show's success was the voice cast, including Jackson Beck as the king and Biggy Rat, Kenny Delmar as The Hunter and New York kids show host Sandy Becker as Mr. Wizard the Lizard.

The real star of the show was Allen Swift, who voiced Odie, Itchy and Tooter. The former host of the New York version of Popeye shows his versatility as a voice actor and it paved the way for roles in Tennessee Tuxedo, Underdog and the last show from Total Television, The Beagles.

Confound it! This review is over.
