Kwicky Koala Show, The

MUCH PANTHER-ESQUE plot reheating came courtesy of this dreary selection of characters. Titular mutt is chased by wolf, can “move quickly” and sounds like a limp Droopy; “Crazy Claws” is sub-Groucho Marx wisecracker in constant trouble with fur trapper and forest ranger in a Jellystone-style National Park (a nugget of nature knowledge was ham-fistedly plopped into each adventure); and Dirty Dawg was an unclean mongrel.

    Mind you, this was pure Pixar compared to later French-produced effort “The Wacky World Of Tex Avery” from DIC (warning sign right there) and – I am not making this up – Les Studios Tex.

    This was of the last cartoons Tex Avery worked on.

    I remember it was repeated early into the Millennium, not sure if it was on BBC2 or Channel 5.
