Storyline

Tennessee Tuxedo is a wise-cracking penguin, who along with Chumley the Walrus, Yakety Yak, and Baldy Eagle, frequently complain about conditions at the Megopolis Zoo to curator Stanley Livingstone, who readily dismisses them, and accuses Tennessee of agitating rebellion amongst zoo animals. With the help of a human scientist, named Phineas J. Whoopee, they're given tips on how to either escape, or improve their lives through simple scientific principles, which are often used incorrectly, and backfire on them.

Trivia

This show was produced at the same animation studio as The Bullwinkle Show (1961) and other Jay Ward cartoons. Many of the same animators who had previously worked on some of the Jay Ward cartoons, worked on this. Since, the animation style is extremely similar, it is often packaged in syndication with the Jay Ward shows. See more »

"Tennessee Tuxedo will not fail!"
6 April 2003 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Do I remember this cartoon show from way back in the day! First off,you have two individuals who were always getting themselves in trouble everytime they pull something off or try to get out of a tight situation. Also,you have Tennessee Tuxedo,a smart-alec penguin,and his dimwitted pal Chumley,a brainless companion bubbleheaded Walrus. Everytime that tried to pull off some lame brain scheme,it backfires only to end up at the hands of a inventor,Mr. Whoopie who always teached the boys a thing or two about the lessons they learned. This cartoon was usually came on between the segments of either "The Underdog Show" or other kinds of Jay Ward produced material,but in turn it was funny at times but kinda cute courtesy of the starring voices of Don Adams(of "Get Smart",and later on "Inspector Gadget"), Delroy Swift,and Larry Storch(of "F-Troop" fame). A must-see for those who fondly remember classic Saturday morning cartoons of the early 1960's and part of the 1970's.
