To a 6 year old viewer such as moi was in 1969, the It's The Wolf! segments of Cattanooga Cats were escapist entertainment to hold attention. More learned minds would later realize that while the setting changes with each episode, the plot remains the same. Mildew Wolf (Paul Lynde, Hollywood Squares, Bewitched) wants to invite innnocent Lambsy (Daws Butler, using his Augie Doggie/Elroy Jetson voice) to dinner, with Lambsy as the main course, but is always thwarted by Lambsy's guardian, Bristle Hound (Allan Melvin, The Brady Bunch).
Now, while lambs aren't usually associated with winter settings, dogs and some breeds of wolves are, although one wonders if Mildew actually would be at home in the snow. Somehow, after the events of "Winter Blunder-Land", I kind of doubt it. I should note that, as was the case on The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, Lynde was not given screen credit for his work, not that he really needed it.

As we've previously documented, Mildew would later reform and become a sportscaster on Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics, but John Stephenson, not exactly doing a Lynde mimic, took over the role, as Lynde had gotten out of the cartoon business following "Charlotte's Web" in 1973.
Well, at least Mildew made a comeback. Lambsy & Bristle? Not so much.
