Nov 19, 1959. This popular cartoon featured the adventures of a talking squirrel, Rocky (Rocket J. Squirrel), and his friend Bullwinkle, a flaky moose. The tongue-in-cheek dialogue contrasted with the simple plots in which Rocky and Bullwinkle tangled with Russian bad guys Boris Badenov and Natasha (who worked for Mr Big). Other popular segments on the show included Fractured Fairy Tales, Bullwinkle’s Corner and the adventures of Sherman and Mr Peabody (an intelligent talking dog). In 1961 the show was renamed The Bullwinkle Show, but the cast of characters remained the same.
