Best show in the world, at 7:30 in the morning.

I used to watch this series of shorts every morning before school. The CBC used to show it in the mornings with "The New Adventures of Pinoccio", another Rankin / Bass classic. I wish they were still on or I could get them on DVD so kids today could enjoy this very funny show. A friend of mine still swears to this day that there is an episode where Dorothy says "Dammit Toto, get down from there." But this is to be taken with a grain of salt, because he's told me on several occasions that Mr.Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is dead. What I really liked about the show was that often repeatable dialog from the show. Also the jokes were right where they should have been for a kids show, not so lame you could never repeat them after the age of 12 but not so sophisticated that they went over the head of the target audience.

I didn't even remember the title of this show until now but it's certainly a childhood favorite cartoon of mine.

This cartoon used to air on TV in Canada all the time and even if the cartoon came out during the 60's.

It never felt outdated to me at all as a kid and this was back during the late 80's and early 90's.

Thats pretty impressive that this show stood the test of time for that long.

I just re watched an episode yesterday on youtube and it was still as funny as i remembered it.

The animation and the drawings maybe a little crude but i didn't care as a kid nor do i care now since the entertainment value is still there.

If you have children of your own. I would highly recommend getting a DVD of this series and show your kids.

They'll likely really love this show as much as you did as a child and have a whole lot of fun watching it.

in closing they just don't make cartoons like they used to.
