Who watched the Secret Squirrel Cartoon on Saturday Morning in the Sixties?

'Secret Squirrel' is a cartoon persona put together by Hanna-Barbera as well as the name of the part in The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show on Saturday morning TV, that started back in in 1965. He was given their own cartoon show in 1966, titled The Secret Squirrel Show. Secret Squirrel and his fez-wearing sidekick Morocco Mole (that appeared very much like Peter Lorre) fought crime aided by the supreme weapon – old fashioned humor. Furnished with only a purple cap and a white overcoat concealing a number of odd secret weaponry, he – typically called SS or perhaps Secret Agent 000 – captured probably the most wanted villains on the planet on behalf of the Double-Q Agency in The United Kingdom. Collectively they evaded such villains as Yellow Pinky (whose name somehow did not instil as much fright Goldfinger), even though James Bond steered clear of from capture by using a laser beam embedded in his wrist watch, Secret Squirrel employed a far more hi-tech method – a set of scissors which is concealed beneath his hat. He to begin with appeared as half of The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show in back in 1965. Soon after just over one season together, the 2 title characters parted ways to superstar in their own individual self-titled TV episodes.

The half-hour The Secret Squirrel Show included three individual cartoon segments: "Secret Squirrel", "Winsome Witch" and "Squiddly Diddly". Secret Squirrel first made an appearance in a prime-time cartoon special called The World of Secret Squirrel and Atom Ant, which broadcast on the NBC on September 12, 1965. However just one year later, ant and SS realised they functioned better as a team, and The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Series was reborn for a final run. The cartoon show would only continue until 1968, however Secret Squirrel wasn’t finished gracing the TV screen.Over twenty five years later on, the nutty agent can be seen in all-new shows on Two Stupid Dogs, partnered with Morocco Mole and a bull superior. Secret Squirrel served as a secret agent (SS's name was "Agent 000"), getting instructions from his superior, called Double-Q. SS was assisted in his escapades by the fez hat wearing partner, Morocco Mole. The pair battled criminal activity and bad agents employing shrewd and a assortment of spy gizmos, such as a machine gun walking stick, a set of firearms saved inside SS's overcoat, as well as a variety of devices hidden within his hat (that Secret Squirrel rarely removed).

Secret Squirrel’s recurring enemy is Yellow Pinkie, that is a parody of Auric Goldfinger from Goldfinger along with Kasper Gutman from The Maltese Falcon. The last couple of episodes brought in Hy-Spy, the master of technical study of criminals. The episodes had been a parody of the then-popular spy genre, with many of his shorts' factors satirizing those of the James Bond films. Later, in 1994, Secret Squirrel began appearing in new cartoons in between the 2 Stupid Dogs shows. The shorts were called "Super-Secret Secret Squirrel" which has been voiced by Jess Harnell. A completely new identity in "Super-Secret Secret Squirrel" was a girl squirrel named Penny (who has a massive infatuation with Secret). In the episode Queen Bea, Penny started to be SS's love interest when she tries to combat Queen Bea for his attention. In the finish of this show, SS cuddles both Penny along with Morocco saying that he really loves all his buddies.
