Tomfoolery (1970)


Did you know that Rankin-Bass Production tried creating a Saturday Morning animated series in the vein of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In back in 1970?

Yeah, neither did I!

Thankfully Ron Kurer’s Toon Tracker blog set me straight. The show failed to find it’s audience though with it’s nonsensical verse and whimsical characters of authors such as Edward Lear, Ogden Nash, Frank Gelett Burgess, and Lewis Carroll.

The Toon Tracker Blog though has been kind enough to post a condensed episode for our enjoyment however.
