Boris dahling, you got fiendish plan?
Vhen DON'T I have fiendish plan?

Upsidaisium. Wassamotta U. The Kerwood Derby. Durwood Kirby sued them over that. He lost. (Who's Durwood Kirby? See Garry Moore. Who's Garry Moore?)

A cold war spoof kid cartoon. How'd they ever think of that? At least two of the story/script staff, Chris Hayward and Lloyd Turner, went on to work on the live action version, Get Smart.

I still remember handfuls of their lines, bits, storylines. And I do Bullwinkle so well his own mother couldn't tell the difference.

Bullwinkle as a waiter:
Cust: How's your irish stew?
BW: Oh the taters are old and the meat is a fright
_____Everything is left over from Saturday night
_____We scrape it all up, put it into a pot
_____And tell you it's real irish stew that we got.
Cust: I'll just have salad with Russian dressing.
BW: Russian Dressing!
_____To-matoes beets and ketchup
_____We use to make it red
_____Just put it on your salad and you'll wish that you were dead.
_____HEY!

Fond memories of Moose and Squirrel....
The writing was goofy, funny, yet creative and sophisticated enough so adults could enjoy it with the kids.

Animated in Mexico? Low budget but that was immaterial to the material. They have been showing old Flintstones every evening on an OTA network here. That was a prime time show but it had some notable QC issues too. Fun to watch for the defects. Their skin tones vary from the neck up sometimes and sometimes skin tones will shift back and forth over a few seconds. But since most people did not have color sets then, it might not have been a crisis. These are 62-63 episodes.

I was born in 1956 and can remember seeing Rocky and Bullwinkle on TV around Thanksgiving of 1959. I was at my cousin's house for dinner. The day wasn't all taken up with football games then.

I remember the show very well.

I remember one show where they are taking a shower, then they are in a bathtub and then back to the shower. Obviously not a lot of communication between the illustrators.

In the 60's it was my job to show up at 7 in the morning to fire up two huge Phillips Mammoth video projectors in two lecture halls. I got to watch two episodes of Rocky and Bullwinkle back to back on the giant screens.

Boris, when vill it be your turn to rowing boat?

Any veek now Natashia, any veek now.

Then there was the fortune teller "Phillip Mignon, Medium Rare"

William (Bill) Conrad was the narrator's voice in the episodes.

My favorite was the Metal Munching Moon-Mice - ate all the TV antennas in Frostbite Falls and then people had to TALK to each other, didn't work out so well. And guess who was behind it all? Mr. Big and Boris, naturally. But, Bullwinkle prevailed doing an Elvis impersonation that the mice loved so much, they stopped munching antennas, followed Bullwinkle into a huge arena which was really a .... no spoilers here!

Metal-Munching Mice is the second story arc from the second season of Rocky and His Friends. It was broadcast on ABC during the 1960/61 television season on Thursdays, concurrently with Upsidaisium on Sundays. [Wikipedia]

I always liked Peabody's Improbable History.

I loved the early Popeye cartoons, as well as the Looney Tunes/Merry Melodies from the same era; that stuff was run heavily on TV in the 1950s and 1960s. A bit PI these days, and you'd swear that some of the animators and directors were smoking the wacky weed!

I didn't see R&B until the mid 60s...not sure if it was in syndicated re-runs by then, but I didn't care. Fractured Fairy Tales, and Peabody's Improbable History always had groaner stories.
The segues into advert time were great…Bullwinkle: "Eenie-meenie, chili beanie...the spirits are about to speak!" Or this one: Rocky: "Look Bullwinkle, a message in a bottle!" Bullwinkle: "Fan mail from some flounder?" Still makes me chuckle.
Wasn't there a character "Wrongway Peachfuzz?"
RW

Edit: End credits had the name "Ponsonby Britt" as the last thing seen. I read somewhere that there was no such person; just the writers being silly, I guess.

I would rush home from school and plop down in front of the B&W TV with my friends to watch Rocky & Bullwinkle in the late 1950s.
Many of the plots and puns were over my head, but the Russian antagonists -- Boris and Natasha -- were a welcome comic relief when you're growing up under The Bomb.
(June Foray's voicing, along with Hans Conried and Edward Everett Horton, was great!)
I have the first two seasons on DVD and they're still a joy to watch.

Don't forget the ever present Narrator of the R&B cartoons... William Conrad.
