Secret Squirrel

SUPPOSED JAMES BOND pastiche, but if so, why was the eponymous squirrel dressed in Clouseau getup? Assistant was Peter Lorre-esque Morrocco Mole (plus fez), bald M-alike referred to him as Secret Squirl. Gizmos in hat (a la INSPECTOR GADGET) present and correct, as were Snooper and Blabbermouse, cat and mouse detective team.

    Not as repeated as much as some other H-B shows, though it got some extra episodes which turned up the risque factor!

    I don’t think an in the womb scene of Morocco & his even twin Scirocco would have made it past the censors in the 1960s!
