Calvin and the Colonel



From the Wikipedia entry:

"The series was an animated remake of Amos 'n' Andy... and featured the voices of Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll[1] from the radio series (in fact, several of the original radio scripts by Joe Connelly & Bob Mosher were adapted for this series). Using animals avoided the touchy racial issues which had led to the downfall of Amos 'n' Andy."

The first item is okay if bland, but the next two are fairly weird.

In the Round Four-Cornered Forest



Pure nightmare fuel for any unsuspecting child.

"The habitants of the Round Four Cornered Forest are a happy bunch of nice, accepting, loving companions: Micker-Macker, Pretty Kitty, Seraphin Horse, Lajos Monster, Aromo, Great Zoard, Sigfrid Bruckner, Elek Mouse, and Dömdödöm."
