Abbott and Costello
“The Abbott And Costello Cartoon Series” was produced beween 1965 and 1967 by a joint venture of Hanna-Barbera, RKO and Jomar Productions.
In all 156 five minute episodes were produced packaged in 39 half hour shows. Each show containing four episodes. The best thing about this show was that Bud Abbott did his own voice, while Stan Irwin supplied the voice of Lou Costello.
These cartoon ran in syndication in 1967 and later reran throughout the United States making the series quite profitable for Bud Abbott who at the time was having financial difficulty due to problems with The I.R.S. dating back to the 1950’s.Additional voices were supplied by Mel Blanc, Hal Smith, John Stephenson, Don Messick and Janet Waldo.
My favorite A & C cartoon episode? “In the Soup”, since Abbott and Costello were dressed in a stone age setting in the style of “The Flintstones”!
