The Bullwinkle Show
The Bullwinkle Show is an expanded prime time edition of Rocky and His Friends, which had aired previously on ABC's afternoon line-up Thursdays. Episodes produced specifically for the show were screened along with two new features, "Aesop & Son" and "Dudley Do-Right Of The Mounties."
The show ran for two seasons in primetime with original episodes. It was hurting ratings-wise going up against Lassie on CBS, prompting NBC to move it to late Sunday afternoons in the fall season of 1962. Season three started immediately after the season two first run episodes. As with season two, anywhere from three to four episodes of an R&B story arc were aired. After September 1962 there was a break in production. It resumed with new episodes airing in April of 1963. That September it migrated to NBC's Saturday morning schedule; in 1964 the repeats moved to ABC on Sunday mornings, where it aired through 1973. It returned on NBC in the fall of 1981 and ran just that season. It returned in prime time for a two-week run on CBS in 1990 (the 4-episode arc "The Last Angry Moose").
Jay Ward would create his first series specifically for Saturday morning in 1964, Hoppity Hooper. In 1963, Ward created the live action series Fractured Flickers. A new series, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, by Dreamworks Animation, premiered May 11, 2018 on Amazon’s streaming service.
