You can currently download this cartoon on youtube.com. This series used to be rerun on The Heckle & Jeckle Show that was broadcast on NBC on Saturday mornings. The Possible Possum series is a flipside of Terrytoons' older and more popular Deputy Dawg series. Like Deputy Dawg, it takes place in the South. The same person that does Muskie's voice does Possible Possum's voice. However, in the Possible Possum series, the characters try to help one another and slapstick ensues when they try too hard. In Deputy Dawg,it's the opposite for the characters are usually trying to outsmart Deputy Dawg and others.

Much has been written by online fans about the dark tone and painful violence of Famous Studios cartoons. This one is a particular good example. // One note--this web site's synopsis says the Henry character becomes a wrestler. Actually, Henry becomes a boxer in this cartoon.// The scenes in which Henry gets beaten up by his Amazonian wife Chicken Pie and the tough rooser boxer Hogan are more disturbing than funny. However, the scenes in which Herman and Henry are celebrating in a bar with female chickens are amusing. Even with the aforementioned scenes in which Henry gets beaten up , you find yourself morbidly amused with the highly exaggerated sight gags(like Henry's body being treated like a punching bag by Hogan). // Fans of Famous' Popeye series will like this cartoon. Henry's fall guy personalitiy reminds one of Popeye--at least Popeye BEFORE he eats his spinach. And Hogan is voiced by Jackson Beck, the same person who did the voice for Bluto. Hogan is really an anthropomorphic version of Bluto. However, Henry is such a loser. Even without his spinach, Popeye has the aura of a "never-say-die" hero. Still,it's fun catching the similarities between this cartoon and Famous' Popeye cartoons.

Possum Pearl is one of my favorite characters in Cartoonland. I've always had an attraction towards Amazonian characters. She's shows off her super-strength as she does in the l956 Popeye cartoon Hill-billing and Coo-ing. However, I was a bit disappointed in this one for I wanted to see herbe more violent in this cartoon. She is so man crazy that she does not realize that the man she's chasing is a robber. And the robber is more of a runt than Popeye. I wanted her to beat up this robber runt Popeye/Bluto style. I wanted to see her use this runt's body for a punching bag or give him a Possum Pearl-style bear hug. Still Pearl herself is fun to watch. It's too bad Famous didn't use her in anymore cartoons after this one was released.
