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.

And You Learned Something Too
13 December 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the earliest cartoons I can remember where kids actually learned something while they were laughing. Whenever Tennessee and Chumley messed up, Mr. Whoopee would patiently explain what they did wrong, and how machines actually work. I also enjoyed the "Commander McBragg" segments. This was another early TV series for Adams, who had previously been an regular on "The Bill Dana Show" before going on to major success on "Get Smart". Another TV veteran, Larry Storch (voice of Mr. Whoopee) would later become the co-star of "F Troop".
