Saturday Morning Cartoon

Rocky and Bullwinkle creator’s Jay Ward and Bill Scott came up with Hoppity Hopper in 1964. It ran two seasons and featured a shyster fox, a bear wearing civil war clothes and a young innocent frog named Hoppity. The trio would constantly try to come up with get rich quick schemes that would fail every time. The rest of the show was filled in with recycled second features from Rocky and Bullwinkle like Peabody’s Improbable History and Fractured Fairy Tales.

There’s a following for the parody episode The Traffic Zone which made fun of The Twilight Zone.
