Fun Show, for what it was worth!!
14 November 2000 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I really liked this series! It's really a shame that they made only one season of episodes. Never mind about what it says, that the show ran 1964 to 1967; only one year of those three years included NEW episodes.

Had they made two or three years of episodes, probably a lot more people would remember this show today. I, also, probably would have enjoyed watching the re-runs much more if there had been in excess of 25+ shows to choose from.

This was a nice lunchtime companion, for me, in the summers when school was out. The frog, the bear and the wolf (or whatever kind of furry character Uncle Waldo was) were cute and also very funny.

Uncle Waldo, voiced by the late, great Hans Conried (who also did Snidely Whiplash on Dudley Do-Right) was actually more than just cute. He was so much like that elderly great-uncle or grandfather, that everyone has.

I also liked Paul Frees as the narrator. Though never really famous, on-camera (he was a priest in A PLACE IN THE SUN--1951-- and a psychiatrist in Disney's THE SHAGGY DOG), I read up on him, over the internet, and learned that his nickname was "THE MAN OF A THOUSAND VOICES".

The bouncy, energetic theme song, was kind of neat, too, because you could see that it was deliberately designed that way to conjure up the image of its star, Hoppity Hooper, in action.

Maybe someday someone will revive this great cartoon series and create brand new episodes! I would much rather see that than a single two-hour movie (I have never thought that those cinematic endeavors ever do an original cartoon series justice).

Hopefully this cartoon, from the Golden Age era of animation, is not so outdated, by today's standards, that it could not be picked up, by some genius, to entertain the future children of America (and some adults too) with all new adventures (hopefully in the same episodic format)!!
