Did You Know?

Originally, Tom K. Ryan's comic strip "Tumbleweeds" was going to be a regular segment on this show and was included in promotional materials and the premier episode. However, after the first episode aired, it was learned that Filmation lacked the rights to use the property and the segment was quickly removed from future episodes.See more »

A Smorgasboard!, 1 February 2003
Author: ( from Toronto, Ontario

This cartoon featured several other short cartoons within it. It was hosted by Foozy and featured marginally beloved characters like Broom Hilda, The Katzenjammer Kids, Nancy and Sluggo. Oddly, Foozy's own Alley-Oop cartoon was seen less often. The cartoons usually featured a moral of some kind: things like being kind to animals, being responsible in school and in one case, using the Broom Hilda characters, alcoholism (seriously!)It was very tame and easy to take. Even as a kid, I was able to tell that the same voice actor was doing different characters in the same show, sometimes even in the same scene. Those who recall the Katzenjammer kids were probably surprised at how much tamer the pranks of the boys were and how little the Captain and the Inspector had to suffer when compared to earlier versions of the comic. In fact, it was probably a combination of the moral-themed storylines and the tameness which kept the kiddie viewers away. Unlike other 70s cartoon, it didn't have any real central figures to create a lasting impression and was quickly forgotten before the end of the same season in which it began.
