Main continuing story involved Rocky and Bullwinkle in conflict with spies Boris and Natasha. Other segments included "Fractured Fairy Tales", "Peabody's Improbable History" (smart dog Peabody and his boy Sherman get in the way-back machine), the "Adventures of Dudley Doright" (Canadian Mountie vs. evil Snidley) and "Aesop and Son" (odd telling of the famous fables).Written by

The currency used in the Fractured Fairy Tales segments were usually Lead Pazoozas, which appears to be an homage to the Mickey Mouse cartoon Brave Little Tailor, where Mickey was paid in Silver Pazoozas. See more »
I always have loved animated shows and cartoons, and I find The Rocky and Bullwinkle/The Bullwinkle Show one of the best there was. The animation is a tad on the primitive side, but it can have an appealing look to it. What makes the show are the characters and the writing. The characters are timeless, not just Rocky and Bullwinkle, Rocky being adorable and Bullwinkle hilarious, but support characters like Boris and Natasha. The writing is superb, with a satirical edge that is both sarcastic and subtle while managing to be laugh-out-loud funny. The episode ideas were original and interesting. Rocky and Bullwinkle's are wonderful, as well as Dudley Doright, Peabody and Fractured Fairy tales. Aesop's Fables weren't quite on the same level but had some good moments. The voice work from June Foray, Paul Frees, William Conrad and Bill Scott is to me some of the best of any cartoon show. Overall, a classic cartoon series and one of the best. 10/10 Bethany Cox
