Tom Terrific episode Unknown

Description

Tom Terrific was a small boy who lived in a treehouse with his faithful but sleepy sidekick, Mighty Manfred the Wonderdog. Tom wore a funnel-shaped magic thinking-cap, which allowed him to transform himself into any shape at will, as well as facilitate his brilliant problem-solving. Tom�s arch-villain was Crabby Appleton, who was �rotten to the core.�


The minimalist black-and-white cartoon was created by Gene Deitch at Terrytoons. All the voices were supplied by Lionel Wilson.


Between 1957 - 1959 Tom Terrific was featured on CBS�s Captain Kangaroo show. There was a new story arc each week of five 5-minute episodes. There were 26 adventures altogether. After 1959 the series was put into syndication.

Between 1957 - 1958 there were six comic books published, with some of the stories drawn by Ralph Bakshi. There were also a few Wonder Books (a subsidiary of Little Golden Books).
