Contained the shorts Normzan of the Jungle, Room Service (Sebastian the Crab) and Bathtime for Maurice (Rerun from it's original airing in Raw Toonage.)
Based on the Belgian comic strip Spirou by Andre Franquin, Marsupilami came to television as part of Disney's Raw Toonage. What that program left the air, Marsupilami gained its own half-hour series, sharing air time with other shorts Sebastian the Crab and Shnookums and Meat.
Marsupilami ("Mars" to his friends) was a yellow marsupial with black spots and a twenty-five-foot prehensile tail he could use to climb, fight, swing, or any number of things. Mars was the fast talker; his gorilla friend Maurice was the strong, silent, stupid type. The two wreaked wacky havoc in the jungle, while avoiding jut-jawed, torso-heavy human Norman.
Sebastian the Crab moved the popular Calypso crustacean from The Little Mermaid to the topside world, where he worked as a lifeguard, a concierge, a Crab Scout leader, and more. The loopy Chef Louie was another carryover from the animated film, continuing to antagonize Sebastian.
The third segment, Shnookums and Meat, was a return to the anarchic pseudo-violence of Tom and Jerry and the like. The title characters were a cat and dog determined to do away with each other.
Each weekly show featured two Marsupilami shorts with one Sebastian or Shnookums & Meat segment sandwiched in between. The show lasted only one season, but the battling cat and dog went on to headlining roles in The Shnookums & Meat Funny Cartoon Show.
