On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

The King and Odie was syndicated replays of King Leonardo and His Short Subjects, which had aired the previous three seasons on NBC. It was repackaged for syndication with a new title opening and was made available for either 15-minute or 30-minute time periods.

During its syndication run, episodes from the different elements of the show (including The Hunter and Tooter Turtle) would concurrently run on NBC's Underdog and CBS's Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales. Included during the first two seasons were The Adventures Of Twinkles, about an elephant (as seen on General Mills' Twinkles cereal) whose magical trunk could change into anything he needed to help a situation. Sandy Becker voiced the characters and the narration in the Twinkles segment.
