Shirt Tales

1 9 8 2 – 1 9 8 4 (USA)
39 x 30 minute episodes

Shirt Tales featured a group of cute talking creatures – Pammy (a panda), Digger (a mole), Bogey (an orangutan, named after his Humphrey Bogart impressions), Rick (a raccoon) and Tyg Tiger (guess) – originally created by greeting card designer Janet Elizabeth Manco and featured on Hallmark cards.

Kip (a kangaroo) joined the group in season two.

Each of the animals wore shirts that echoed their thoughts, flashing various brightly lit messages.

 

The furry pals lived in a secret hideout in Oak Tree Park and battled crime while agitating the park ranger, Mr Dinkle.

While sleuthing, the gang used the Shirt Tales’ Super-Sonic Transporter (STSST), which not only helped them get around quickly but also sported a laserlike beam that functioned as a lasso or a ladder.
