Encore:Hoppity Hooper Christmas Episode (Cartoon Fun)

I believe this was telecast Sunday afternoons at 5PM on WEWS-TV 5 (ABC) "Hoppity Hooper" (though not this episode, unfortunately) has several episodes on Public Domain DVD..As I mention in the post I thought this show was underrated..

A little fun to start the Holiday season:A Christmas Episode of "Hoppity Hooper" from December 19, 1965..This was actually a repackaging of "Hoppity" into a series called "Cartoon Fun" on ABC-TV sponsored by Topper Toys, which ran Sunday afternoons from September-December, 1965. Veteran comic actor Hans Conreid was Waldo Wigglesworth, Bill Scott(Bullwinkle) was Fillmore the Bear and Chris Allen was the naive frog Hoppity..The show was reminiscent of Rocky and Bullwinkle, with crude animation and puns galore..Very underrated in my opinion..Thanks to Toontracker for this gem..
