Tooniversary: Lippy the Lion in Watermelon Felon (1962)

Part of the reason Lippy The Lion was never heard from again after his 1962 series ended was because Daws Butler recycled the voice for Peter Potamus, and Peter lasted at least two seasons on his own.

Anyway, thought I'd share that little nugget before Lippy and his sidekick, Hardy Har Har (Mel Blanc) set out to score some free food in "Watermelon Felon":

I think the trick was you couldn't use Lippy & Peter in the same cartoon, as I don't think Lippy ever appeared on Yogi's Gang, and, as we all know, Peter did.

Rating: B.
