The King is dead. Long live the King!

Author: Mola from boogie central
28 September 1998

Launched in 1989, Agro's Cartoon Connection could be considered Australia's finest moment of spontaneous television comedy. Due to the devilish nature of this children's show, it appealed to the sensibilities of 'grown-ups' in ways its target audience couldn't comprehend. Improvised humour with an adult tinge and a child-like wonder propelled this Wayne Soutar produced cartoon vehicle to immense popularity.

ACC was spearheaded by Agro, an ill-mannered, bad-tempered puppet (performed by Jamie Dunn) and assisted by talented co-hosts over the years. Anne-Marie Biggar, Michael 'Gibbo' Gibson, Ian 'Crikey the Clown' Calder, 'Ranger' Stacey Thompson, Terasa Livingstone, Holly Brisley and Bradley Hills were all irreplaceable, equally irresistible partners in crime and essential in maintaining the show's entertaining quality. Amassing 7 Logie Awards, Agro's Cartoon Connection was quite simply Australian TV's greatest vestige - a veritable fart in the face of mediocrity.

Unfortunately, broadcaster Channel 7 didn't agree and gradually cut back the show in both length and financing - leading to its eventual decay and unfortunate cancellation in late 1997. Its legacy continues however in the hearts, minds and video players of its many enthusiasts who currently cower in anticipation of Agro's inevitable return to television...

Agro can still be heard on B105 in brisbane. I still think today that Channel 7 made the wrong decission of taking Agro's Cartoon Connection off the Air. Have you ever noticed that since ACC went off air there has been less Cartoons shown on free to air? PAY TV GET AGRO ON THERE SO I CAN Watch him!!! i'll even work on the show for nothing!!
