Ah, yes.....the greatest swamp operator, Wally Gator. This lovable cartoon character ranks as one of my most favorite....even to this day (thanks to Boomerang), I still enjoy watching him. Released in the year 1962....along with such cartoons as "Lippy the Lion"& Touch'e Turtle, Wally Gator is always trying to escape from the Zoo, & getting into mischief or trouble or ....something. Unfortunately, the people in the city didn't take too kindly to an alligator trying to fit into a human society....only seeing him as a either shoes, a handbag, etc. Like a lot of the earlier Hanna Barbera cartoons, Wally's adventures were always fun to watch. I was amazed to find out there are over 52 episodes of this cartoon series...so, try to catch them if you can. Oh, I just recently saw a "Wally Gator" cartoon (this one was updated & "computer drawn") where Wally is "rescued" from the zoo, & taken back to the swamp, only to get re-rescued at the swamp & Wally & the "other"gators drive back to the zoo & enjoy "life in captivity". At the very end, a little bird with a "big" beak is yelling to the gator rescuers...."eat me....eat me. You're messing with the order, no one messes with the order......eat me....eat me!" It's too funny....!
