I think there's a geographical factor at work here, as I have never heard of most of those. In the UK we got some north American imports, such as Tom & Jerry, Popeye, Top Cat, and I seem to recall Huckleberry Hound. I don't recall so many homegrown cartoons on TV, although Ivor the Engine and Noggin the Nog stand out in my memory. Children's programmes when I was very young were mostly puppet type shows, eg Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men, Torchy, the Woodentops, Sooty, Andy Pandy, Muffin the Mule, Rag Tag and Bobtail, the Clangers, Twizzle, Noddy, etc.

If we go into the cartoon characters in the children's comic books such as Dandy and Beano, the list gets longer.

>5 John5918: I just saw the original Muffin the Mule on Antiques Roadshow...

Ott 6, 2020, 8:42am

Mr. Peabody, often on the Rocky and Bullwinkle show.

Ott 6, 2020, 9:03am

>7 hailelib: and his sidekick, Sherman.

Ott 6, 2020, 9:05am

Dick Dastardly and Muttley. And Yankee Doodle Pigeon.

Ott 6, 2020, 2:29pm

>8 2wonderY: You mean his "Boy"! Love that show.

Ott 6, 2020, 2:42pm

Mickey Mouse in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".

>11 hailelib:

I would say that the "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is still one of the best cartoon films ever made.

My all time favorite cartoon is The Roadrunner.

Ott 12, 2020, 12:36pm

Dudley Do-Right and Nell, Snidely Whiplash. Horse’s name, anyone?

Ott 12, 2020, 6:44pm

>14 2wonderY: Wasn't it just "horse"?

Ott 13, 2020, 5:07pm

Just googled it. "Horse" is correct. Nell loved Horse far more than she loved Dudley.

Ott 15, 2020, 5:11am

Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb.

OK, stop-motion animation rather than cartoons.

Remember Fractured Fairy Tales?

Nov 18, 2020, 7:10am

I’ve been installing fiberglass insulation and the Pink Panther is still the celebrity spokesperson for Corning.

Nov 28, 2020, 7:12am

Daffy Duck

Gen 30, 2021, 10:34am

>17 abbottthomas: Very topical .. .. .. It's name was TRUMPTON.

Gen 30, 2021, 3:58pm

Jonny Quest! Son of Dr. Quest, famous scientist, with his sidekick Race Bannon, and his best friend Hadji - and Bandit, the pug.

Great names. Funny how I never noticed the complete absence of female characters in that show. It was such fun!

Gen 30, 2021, 4:00pm

>23 terriks: Oh! I loved that show! And it was multi-racial, yah?

Gen 30, 2021, 4:10pm

>24 2wonderY: Exactly! Hadji knew things that Jonny didn't and vice-versa, gently implied through their cultural diversity. Obviously, as kids we couldn't articulate that, but it added to the show.

Remember the Mummy, and the one-eyed giant spider thing? Eek! 😆

Gen 30, 2021, 4:20pm

Here’s a stop-action version of the opening, done in 2011. Exciting!

What was the show that was produced in stop-action and featured young men and fancy rocket planes in a hidden (under water?) headquarters ?

Gen 30, 2021, 4:35pm

Just recalled *ping, ping, ping!* Ricochet Rabbit and his faithful sidekick, Droop-a-Long.

Gen 30, 2021, 5:52pm

>26 2wonderY:. I might be thinking of Thunderbirds; produced with “Supermarionation.” One of the vehicles launched from beneath the in-ground swimming pool. The entire pool installation slid back for launches. Loved that detail.

Gen 30, 2021, 6:59pm

>26 2wonderY: That was awesome! That music is still guaranteed to get your heart pumping!

Gen 30, 2021, 11:33pm

Clutch Cargo, with Spinner and Paddlefoot...

Gen 31, 2021, 7:01am

Ha Ha !! Thunderbirds are go .. .. ..

Gen 31, 2021, 7:38am

Can anybody remember the other series produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson in Supermarionation? Stingray, Supercar, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons... others?

Modificato: Gen 31, 2021, 4:56pm

>32 John5918: Fireball XL5 was fantastic. They even had a record in the top ten !! It was, in fact, a very good recording and went well live on stage.

I wish I was a space man, the fastest guy alive
I'd fly you round the universe in Fireball XL5.

Dic 30, 2021, 6:49pm

Boris and Natasha. I bet you can mimic them today.

Dic 31, 2021, 6:36pm

One I just remembered: Snagglepuss...a pink cat, I think! He was always saying, "Heavens to Murgatroyd."

Gen 4, 7:37pm

Most of those Fireball XL5 marionettes were used again to make the 2004 smash hit, Team America, World Police.
The didn't use plucky little Jonathan Zero; nor his pet monkey, Mitch.

My late wife had gotten (among a myriad of other animals), a female cockatiel. Its screech sounded exactly like JZ calling out to locate his pet every time they got lost and separated in an underground labyrinth - which occurred in perhaps 20% of the episodes. I hated that bird.

And because this has wandered far from topic -- cartoon characters -- I have to say that for me, it's a toss-up between Vera Aldid and Fearless Fodstick, both from the Dick Tracy comics in the Sunday newspaper.

Tennessee Tuxedo. Gotta go watch some.
