52 x 30 minute episodes
Hoppity Hooper (voiced by Chris Allen) was a plucky talking frog living in Foggy Bog, Wisconsin, who found himself befriended by con artist Professor Waldo Wigglesworth (Hans Conreid), a fox who took it upon himself to announce he was Hoppity’s uncle and join him in various misadventures.
Waldo’s stooge, Fillmore the bear (voiced by Bill Scott) – who dressed in a Civil War uniform and played a bugle – fell in line with his boss and became Hoppity’s cousin.
Each show included two episodes of a four-part adventure, along with repeated segments of “Fractured Fairy Tales” and “Peabody’s Improbable History” from The Bullwinkle Show and “Commander McBragg” from Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales.
The ABC series aired in syndication as Uncle Waldo’s Cartoon Show.
