A One Year Wonder, 31 May 2009
Author: hfan77 from St. Louis Park, MN

I remember watching The Hair Bear Bunch on Saturday mornings in the early 70s and to me it was one of the funniest cartoons at that time. It reminded me a little of Sgt. Bilko as Hair, the leader concocted schemes so that he, Square and Bubi tried to escape from the Wonderland Zoo. Frequently trying to foil the bear's plans was zoo keeper Mr. Peevely and his sidekick Botch.

The show was part of CBS' outstanding Saturday morning lineup but it only lasted one season before being exiled to Sunday morning reruns. One aspect that stood out was the voice work of Bill Callaway, Paul Winchell, Joe E. (Ooh Ooh!) Ross, John Stephenson and Hanna-Barbera stalwart Daws Butler. Let's split.
