This show is about a mis-adventures with Colonel Montgomery J. Klaxon (a cool fox), and Calvin Burnside (a dim witted bear). Oliver always makes mischief, he is also a lawyer. Written by
This was a black and white made for TV cartoon that was created and voiced by Charles Correll and Freeman Gosden of "Amos and Andy" fame. Huge stars on radio for decades, the decline of radio and the political incorrectness of their blackface characters finally ended the "Amos and Andy" run in 1960. Inspired by the success of many radio stars in Hanna-Barbera cartoons, "Calvin and the Colonel" was their attempt to resurrect their popular characters in the disguise of a fox and a bear. The attempt didn't work. The animation was second rate and as a kid, the show always seemed kind of slow and boring. The two retired for good after the failure of this cartoon.
