Hoppity Hooper was an animated television series produced by Jay Ward in 1964, originally broadcast on ABC (1964-67), originally co-sponsored by General Mills and Topper Toys, and later syndicated under the title Uncle Waldo’s Cartoon Show.
The first two episodes were actually produced in 1960, and featured Alan Reed as Fillmore. The series wasn’t picked up for broadcast until September 1964, and by that time Reed was unavailable, because of his commitment with another ABC animated TV series, The Flintstones, as the voice of Fred Flintstone. Therefore, Bill Scott was named to do the voice of Fillmore.
The series was broadcast by ABC from September 12, 1964 to September 3, 1966. ABC continued to air reruns until September 2, 1967. The series was syndicated to local television stations through the 1970s and 1980s.
