Hippety Hopper

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    The baby kangaroo repeatedly mistaken for a giant mouse in a long-running -- perhaps too long-running -- series of cartoons by Bob McKimson that started with Hop, Look and Listen (1948). Since the character was silent, and the plots in the series have few variations, these tend to be among the more stilted of the the Warner Brothers cartoons, perhaps only rivaled by the Speedy Gonzales series for overall mediocrity.

    Filmography (all directed by Robert McKimson):

        Hop, Look and Listen (1948)
        Hippety Hopper(1949)
        Pop ’Im Pop (1950)
        Who’s Kitten Who (1952)
        Hoppy Go Lucky (1952)
        Cats Aweigh (1953)
        Bell Hoppy (1954)
        Lighthouse Mouse (1955)
        Too Hop to Handle (1956)
        The Slap-Hoppy Mouse (1956)
        Mouse-taken Identity (1957)
        Hoppy Daze (1961)
        Freudy Cat (1964)
