Cartoon Production Information:
Perhaps the more famous at the time was Alley Oop, a caveman who debuted in comic strip form in 1933 and was immortalized in a self-titled 60's novelty song. Oop, with his romantic interest Ooola, lived under the rule of King Guz in the Kingdom of Moo. The show was hosted by Oop's sidekick, Foozy. Other series regulars included Nancy, a young girl who, along with her pal Sluggo, came to the comics in 1940; The Katzenjammer Kids (Fritz and Hans), who started causing trouble for Der Captain Katzenjammer way back in 1897; and Broom Hilda, a 1,500-year-old witch who couldn't control her powers very well. Broom Hilda was a relative newcomer to the comic strip universe, having debuted in 1970.
This show attempted to be educational, addressing kid-friendly topics like safety and health care. Despite its popular characters and prosocial message, the show ran only one season.
