"Wuzzles" and Adventures of the Gummi Bears (1985), both cartoons created by Walt Disney's animation studio, debuted on September 14, 1985 and were syndicated to different networks, competing against each other in the same time slot. Gummi Bears" ultimately had a larger audience on NBC then "The Wuzzles" did on CBS, and "The Wuzzles" was canceled after just 13 episodes. (Since both shows aired on different times on ITV in the United Kingdom, it received more success there). See more »
Growing up, watching cartoons is every child's religion. I used to wake up Saturday morning run to the bathroom relieve myself, run to the TV, flip it to the cartoons, sit there for three hours then my mom would call me for breakfast. I would eat as fast as I could then run back to the TV and sit there for another three hours, until football started. Bleach! Gummy Bears and The Wuzzles, The Smurfs were the ones I remember the best. If you grew up in the 80's you would know these shows. Out of the three I liked best was The Smurfs. The Wuzzles and Gummy Bears a close second, the both of them. I followed each show right to the end. But The Wuzzles was canceled just when i got in to it. The reason it stopped was that of the voice characters passed away. Bill Scott, he suffered a heart attack at the age of 65. He wasn't just a voice actor, he wrote, produced and directed. He was most famous for his role as Bullwinkle J. Moose. He also did Dudley Do-Right and of course Gruffi Gummy. I'm sure The Wuzzles would have continued and made a bigger impact on the world too. Only thirteen episodes though, it was one of those shows gone before their time. I didn't know this until 22 years later, when I discovered the internet. Whoa! you might be saying to yourself. What a dinosaur, you say. Right, I am.
