Based on the Belgian comic strip by Andre Franquin, Marsupilami came to television as part of Disney’s Raw Toonage. What that program left the air, Marsupilami gained its own half-hour series, sharing air time with other shorts Sebastian the Crab and Shnookums and Meat.

Marsupilami (“Mars” to his friends) was a yellow marsupial with black spots and a twenty-five-foot prehensile tail he could use to climb, fight, swing, or any number of things. Mars was the fast talker; his gorilla friend Maurice was the strong, silent, stupid type. The two wreaked wacky havoc in the jungle, while avoiding jut-jawed, torso-heavy human Norman.

Sebastian the Crab moved the popular Calypso crustacean from The Little Mermaid to the topside world, where he worked as a lifeguard, a concierge, a Crab Scout leader, and more. The loopy Chef Louie was another carryover from the animated film, continuing to antagonize Sebastian.

The third segment, Shnookums and Meat, was a return to the anarchic pseudo-violence of Tom and Jerry and the like. The title characters were a cat and dog determined to do away with each other.

Each weekly show featured two Marsupilami shorts with one Sebastian or Shnookums & Meat segment sandwiched in between. The show lasted only one season, but the battling cat and dog went on to headlining roles in The Shnookums & Meat Funny Cartoon Show.
