One of my all time favorites
8 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a favorite cartoon from my youth. I not only remember seeing it on TV but also one night at our local drive-in. For years I feared that I'd never see it again. Just my memories of the little matchmaker in front of various officials, recreating the morning parade, "Every morning at 7, Rattatata rattatata, rattatata, tam Ze King, rattatam La premier, rattatatam the lord ministers, boom boom, ratatatam the army, ratatam navy, ratatatam, the department sanatair, boom plop, Filthy, disgusting".

Then about 8 years ago I got it when the Family channel had a daily showing of Harveytoons one. I taped it every morning, getting a bunch of Herman and Katnups, Little Audreys, and Casper's when one morning they showed, a modern Madcap called, "La Petite Parade". More recently I transfered this gem to DVD so I can always have it.
