Satchel (a pelican), Knock-Knock (a woodpecker), Scooter (a penguin) and Scat Cat (work it out!) starred in this B-grade Banana Splits clone, which – like the Splits – also combined wacky bits featuring the hosts with short animated adventures (Three Robonic StoogesWonder Wheels and Woofer and Wimper, Dog Detectives) and a live-action series shown in serial form (Mystery Island).

After less than six months on the air, the show was cancelled – although The Three Robonic Stooges was spun-off into its own show.
