Rein-Toon-Ation: The Hillbilly Bears (late 90's-early 00's)

Back when Cartoon Network actually gave a rat's butt about the earlier toons that helped build the channel, they created a series of interstitals, known as "Shorties" that revisited some of those characters. Sad to say, some of these bits left a lot to be desired.

In the case of The Hillbilly Bears, however, CN actually had a plot that fit them just fine. Not exactly sure what year "Miss Understanding" was produced, but as you'll see, it's a parody of a certain daytime talk show. The animation isn't quite a match, but ya can't have everything........

To be honest with ya, pilgrims, I'd rather they redid "Do The Bear". Rating: C.
