Saturtainment: Precious Pupp in Bites & Gripes (1965)

It's amazing how Precious Pupp has been forgotten and shunted off to the vaults, with his 50th anniversary a year away. Then again, given how [adult swim] has dissed other Hanna-Barbera characters from the 60's with their so-called humor, maybe it's just as well. It would require a new administration with a better appreciation for the older cartoons taking over Cartoon Network/Boomerang before Precious is even considered for a revival.

That having been said, let's revisit Precious at his best, in "Bites & Gripes".

The video has been deleted due to copyright issues.

See what happens when crooks don't pay attention to every word?

 Rating: B.

I remember Precious Pup being part of the Magilla Gorilla syndication package.

He was Muttley before Muttley was Muttley!

Gotta love Granny though! She was always portrayed as young at heart.

I don't recall seeing Precious in the Magilla package, but he was part of the Banana Splits package, coupled as he originally was with Secret Squirrel.

"He was Muttley before Muttley was Muttley!"

That's easy, considering Don Messick transposed Precious' snickering to Muttley 3 years later in Wacky Races.
