Famous Cartoon Quote..."Tennessee Tuxedo Will Not Fail" 1963-1966 Cartoon History

 Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley were a popular animated duo that first appeared on television screens in the early 1960s. The show was produced by Total Television Productions and was created by the same team that produced the successful cartoon series, "Underdog." Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley quickly became a fan favorite due to their witty humor and lovable characters.

The show followed the adventures of Tennessee Tuxedo, a well-dressed penguin, and his bumbling sidekick, Chumley, a dim-witted walrus. The two characters lived in the Megapolis Zoo and were always trying to find ways to escape their mundane lives. In each episode, Tennessee would come up with a new scheme to try and improve their situation, but his plans would often backfire, leading to hilarious mishaps and misunderstandings.

The show was unique in that it had an educational component. Tennessee and Chumley would often visit Professor Phineas J. Whoopee, an eccentric inventor who lived nearby. Professor Whoopee would teach the duo about history, science, and other topics through his "3D BBB," a machine that would transport them to different historical events or scientific phenomena.

Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley ran for a total of 70 episodes from 1963 to 1966. The show was broadcast on CBS and was a popular favorite among children and adults alike. The series also spawned a number of spin-offs, including a comic book and a line of merchandise. As I mentioned earlier in this blog post...

Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley was created by the talented team of cartoonists and animator, W. Watts Biggers("Buck").

Biggers teamed up with fellow animators, Chet Stover and Treadwell Covington, to form Total Television Productions. The company specialized in producing animated shows that were both entertaining and educational, and Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley was one of their most successful endeavors.

The voices of Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley were provided by veteran voice actors, Don Adams

and Bradley Bolke, respectively. Don Adams was already well-known for his work on The Bill Dana Show and would later go on to achieve even greater fame as the star of the classic TV series, Get Smart.

Bradley Bolke, on the other hand, was a relatively unknown actor who had appeared in a few minor TV roles. His portrayal of Chumley, the lovable, dim-witted walrus, quickly made him a fan favorite among viewers of the show.

Other notable voice actors who contributed to the series include Larry Storch

who provided the voice of Tennessee's friend, a wise older man and inventor named Phineas J. Whoopee, and Mort Marshall, who played a variety of supporting characters.

Together, the talented creators and voice actors of Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley helped to create a classic animated series that remains beloved by fans to this day. Their contributions helped to shape the show's unique blend of humor and education, as well as its memorable characters and timeless appeal..."Now for some Tennessee & Chumley"

The cartoons typically featured Mighty Mouse battling various villains in and around the city of Mouseville. Most of the antagonists were original creations, such as the Catfish, a giant cat-octopus hybrid. Other villains included a fox, goose, or wolf that was trying to capture or harm the citizens of Mouseville. On occasion, Mighty Mouse would also battle supernatural characters, such as the ghostly Captain Kid. The cartoons also featured recurring characters, such as Pearl Pureheart, Mighty Mouse's love interest,

and Oil Can Harry, a recurring archrival. The voice for Mighty Mouse was provided by Roy Halee and Jackson Beck. The animation for the cartoons was produced by Paul Terry....Terrytoons Productions.
