The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show is the collective name for two American television animated cartoon series: Rocky and His Friends (1959–1961) and The Bullwinkle Show (1961–1964).[9] Rocky & Bullwinkle enjoyed popularity during the 1960s. It was targeted towards children and adults. The zany characters and absurd plots would draw in children, while the clever usage of puns and topical references appealed to the adult demographic.[10] These strengths helped it overcome the fact that it had choppy, limited animation; in fact, some critics described the series as a well-written radio program with pictures.[11]

Background

The idea for the series was created by Jay Ward and Alex Anderson, who had previously collaborated on Crusader Rabbit, and was based upon the original property The Frostbite Falls Revue. This original show never got past the proposal stage. It was about a group of forest animals running a TV station. The group included Rocket J. Squirrel, Oski Bear, Canadian Moose (Bullwinkle), Sylvester Fox, Blackstone Crow, and Floral Fauna. The show in this form was created by Jay Ward's partner Alex Anderson.[12] Bullwinkle's name came from the name of a car dealership in Berkeley, California called Bullwinkel Motors. Mr. Anderson changed the spelling of the name and gave it to his moose, and an unforgettable cartoon character was born [13].
