Nearly ten years after his syndicated series ended production, Beetle Bailey returned to television, this time in a short skit on Sesame Street. An off-camera narrator carries the action, as apparently the producers couldn't get any of the voice actors to return, although Howard Morris, who was the voice of Beetle in the 1962-4 King Features series, did contribute a short skit with Jughead from The Archie Show four years earlier. Allan Melvin (Sgt. Snorkel) was working on The Brady Bunch at the time. Oh, well.
This would be the last Beetle cartoon. Now, if some enterprising soul would try to get the rights......!
