Loopy De Loop was Hanna-Barbera's only theatrical cartoon series after they left MGM and formed their own studio. If you are familiar with Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear, you will already know the art style. Unlike those series, however, Loopy De Loop is quite ingenious and ahead of its time in terms of subject matter.
Loopy is a wolf who's determined to clear the bad name of wolves by being upstanding and doing good deeds. The sad irony is that his good intentions are usually met with hostility - not through anything he does, he is the soul of goodness. It's just because he's a wolf. Everywhere he goes, situations always work against him and people's prejudice against wolves sees his endeavours fail and fail again.
But no matter how many times he fails, he is undaunted and keeps on trying. With his impeccable manners and his French-muddled accent, he is one of those cartoon characters that time forgot - and who's more important today than ever. Both entertaining and poignant.
