TV Animation - 1958

These are animated cartoon characters that debuted on TV in 1958. Even though Yogi was only a supporting character on Huckleberry Hound's show, he ended up being the favorite of the two and was TV's first "breakout" animated character. Felix debuted in theatrical short films decades earlier, but 1958 was the year they animated new, original Felix the Cat cartoons specifically for TV. (More can be seen in the "History of TV Animation" folder in my gallery.)

1958 -
(left to right)
Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear - The Huckleberry Hound Show
Felix the Cat - Felix the Cat
Spunky and Tadpole - The Adventures of Spunky and Tadpole
Bozo the Clown - Bozo: The World's Most Famous Clown

Yogi didn't get his own show until 1961, but he debuted on Huckleberry Hound so I included him here.
