TV Shows - Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, The

The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show is the collective name for two separate American television animated series: Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show. Rocky & Bullwinkle enjoyed great popularity during the 1960s. Much of this success was a result of it being targeted towards both children and adults. The zany characters and absurd plots would draw in children, while the clever usage of puns and topical references appealed to the adult demographic. Furthermore, the strengths of the series helped it overcome the fact that it had choppy, limited animation; in fact, some critics described the series as a well-written radio program with pictures.

1 A special place in my heart for this gem of a cartoon, arguably the king of them all. Funny, smart, bold, and paced, this show had all the successful elements in the right place at the right time. The side-segments were a great set (Peabody and his boy Sherman, Dudley Do-Right, Aesop, Fairy Tales, Commander McBragg) and laid the way for shows in a similar format later on (the most successful probably being The Animaniacs). I think Looney Tunes laid a foundation for other cartoons to build on but Rock and Bullwinkle was a true mark of ingenuity and was definitely a cornerstone for all future cartoons. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 21, 2009, 1:07 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Jay Ward was everything Seth MacFarlane wishes he could be. Simply brilliant and unboneable. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 15, 2009, 8:19 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 LoyalPigeon, it's "bone". "Jump" recently became obsolete at the TV Guide takeover and revamping. -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 7, 2009, 12:48 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 With it's razor-sharp wit satire and self-parody, I believe the show never EVER boned. Although, I'm sure a few parents would have liked to have deboned (and stuffed) Bullwinkle after one time he said (in puppet form) that the kids at home could pull off the channel changer knobs so they could guarantee being able to watch the show next week. Yeah, as hard as it may to believe, a bunch of kids managed to fight and overcome their exhaustion from their journey of travelling from the living room floor all the way to the front of the set to remove said knob because remotes hadn't been invented yet. Oh, and yes it's also true that almost all those sets were still in black and white. Somehow many of us survived those trials growing up! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2009, 11:36 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 A true masterpiece that never came close to jumping. In fact, it seemed to get better as it went on. The Wossamatta U. story arc, possibly the most memorable episode, actually came toward the end of the show's run. Two lousy movies were made, but those were years after the fact. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 29, 2009, 10:32 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
