No (unless the professor was Clyde Crashcup?).
I liked Tennessee Tuxedo and Tooter Turtle. Deputy Dawg was OK. Never liked Mighty Mouse or Popeye, but they were all that was on Sunday Morning when we were getting ready for Church.

Alvin I remember and yes that was a very good show.

Beanie and Cecil I never saw and episode of but know of it and have seen segments it.


Did you see Q T Hush , Cool McCool and The Professor and Leonardo ? :)
B&C was on one of Cartoon Network's long forgotten programs on the guys who directed cartoons. I could not bear to watch even that one cartoon. Nevertheless, I still remember the villain, Dishonest John, or DJ as Cecil called him.

I tried watching Cool McCool a while ago, but, it just did nothing for me.

I have a very long list. Some of what I learned about life came from Bugs Bunny cartoons. The rest came from Daffy Duck.

Only one mention of Top Cat! I loved that show.
If you lived nearby and there was no pandemic, I’d invite you round for a TC marathon. I have a TC box set amongst others. Some of the others being, Tom & Jerry, Battle Of The Planets, Wacky Races, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors Ulysses 31 and Betty Boop. I’m still a kid at heart:)

(For some reason they always announced it as 'Boss Cat' when I was a kid in the UK)


Something to do with advertising. There was (apparently) a brand of cat food called Top Cat, so the Beeb ddin't want to look like they were promoting a brand. Seems a bit silly these days!

I also loved Bilko as a kid (the inspiration for this show), which always seemed to get runs in and around the kid's slots on BBC2. Not sure it was designed for kids, but you gotta love Phil Silvers.

Didn’t British TV (not sure of it was BBC or ITV) do something similar with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? I seem to recall that they were called Hero Turtles instead.

Also, anybody remember Centurions? I remember watching that on a saturday morning. I also remember enjoying it. Don’t know what I’d think of it now.

Yes I think at the time there was a bit of a furore with violence on kid's tv , and I also think that nunchucks and their depiction on all tv had been banned, so they even had to edit it to remove the weapons. Think they even banned showing nunchucks in the Bruce Lee movies of the time.

I'm pretty sure that Michelangelo's nunchucks were not edited out. But they were certainly called Hero Turtles. I can't help but think that Britain would have been a far better place without Mary Whitehouse

There is comic crossover where Top Cat meets Batman and the story told in a serious take. It's quite interesting.:cool: it was on one the Future Quest crossover comics.
