Loopy de Loop

I hate it when people criticize Hanna-Barbera cartoons and looking down on them for just having "bad" animation.

This guy was one of my favourite characters as a kid. Loopy de Loop was a French Canadian wolf who attempted to prove to the world that not all wolves were bad, but would often face very painful repercussions from anyone he would approach, all because he was a wolf.

Though it was never intended this way, it occurs to me that this character represents what HB fans face these days; trying to show people how funny these shows are, but being knocked down because of its animation, just as Loopy is often knocked down because he's a wolf.

Still, I hope you like this. It took 2 and a half hours from pencil to release, but I feel it's been worth it.

I never really got to watch this cartoon.  There was no channel in my area airing it.  I think I've only seen one episode.  I grew up with Hanna Barberra and I love their cartoons!

It was a very funny series. Unlike the other HB shows, this one was a theatrical series which ran for 48 shorts from 1959 to 1965. It's just been released on DVD in the US, but it's apparently not region locked, which cheers me up no end.
