Saturtainment: Raw Toonage (1992)

Disney's Raw Toonage lasted 1 season on CBS, and would spin off Marsupilani, based on a European book series, and Bonkers, which went into daily syndication. In fact, the Bonkers shorts on Raw Toonage were a prequel to the subsequent series, as this was before Bonkers joined the Toontown PD.

Don Karnage (ex-TaleSpin) was one of a number of "guest hosts" who introduced segments on the show, and this would be the last we'd see of him. The following episode is a December 1992 rebroadcast, as the episode had premiered in late September.

No rating.

Indeed, the "He's Bonkers" shorts were chronologically set before the "Bonkers" syndicated series, however, the Disney Afternoon series with Bonkers D. Bobcat as a cop were actually made first. Disney thought it would be a clever idea to make some actual "Bonkers" shorts and set them to air before the premiere of his series to further establish Bonkers' former career as a toon star in Tinsletown. Speaking of chronology, the "Bonkers" episodes featuring Miranda Wright were made prior to the ones in which Bonkers' partner was Lucky Piquel, however the Piquel episodes aired first.

Hmmm. Someone wasn't connecting their dots in the right places.
