Production Notes:

Thunderbolt first appeared on TV as a puppet character on "Thunderbolt the Wondercolt," a 1952 kids' TV puppet show that was written, created, produced and the puppet manipulated by Bob Clampett.

Like The Adventures of Bullwinkle and Rocky before it, this show was originally a puppet show (called "Time for Beany", 1950-1953), and became an animated cartoon.

It is said that Albert Einstein never missed an episode of the puppet version of this show.

This episode has a scene portraying a "face-off" of cartoon legends as Beany tries to outwit Dishonest John. Watch quickly, and you'll see caricatures of characters including Bugs Bunny, Yogi Bear, Daffy Duck and Porky Pig.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
