Toon Sports: Tom Slick in the Bad Year Blimp Race (1967)

Tom Slick converts his Thunderbolt Kneeslapper into a blimp. Why? Because this is "The Bad Year Blimp Race", that's why.

Note that Paul Frees is both the announcer and uses his Boris Badenov voice for Baron Otto Matic.




Does anyone want to see Tom return for his 50th anniversary in 2017? No? Why am I not surprised?

Speaking of Paul Frees. I said earlier in a previous comment that he wasn't Evil Star. Ted Knight was. But, You were right. I was wrong. He was Evil Star. I think he made Evil Star sound like The Skrulls from the Fantastic Four (1967) show. You were right. My mistake.

The star of these Great Race-inspired shorts. No wonder few remember him other than as a backup behind George of the Jungle and Super Chicken......
