Hoot Kloot: “Kloot’s Kounty” (1973)

Hoot Kloot
Morning! How about you take a seat beside me as we enjoy an episode of the DePatie-Freleng Enterprises Sheriff Hoot Kloot series of animated shorts from back in 1973? This episode is entitled ‘Kloot’s Kounty’ and finds the diminutive and evidently short-tempered lawman and his loyal talking horse doing their best to stop Crazywolf from stealing sheep.

By the way, from 1974 to 1976 the Hoot Kloot series was shown as part of NBC’s Pink Panther and Friends television show. Veteran voice actor Bob Holt took on the chores of Sheriff Kloot as well as his talking horse Fester, Larry D. Mann was the voice of Crazywolf, and Joan Gerber handled the role of the Mae West like Shepherdess.
