The Baggy Pants Cartoon cat is little known. Thirteen episodes were produced by De Patie-Freleng. They were shown on Baggy Pants and Nitwits (NBC 1977). The cartoons only contained sight and sound (no voice) and were a bit like the Pink Panther but less cleaver.
Baggy Pants dressed like Charlies Chaplin’s Tramp. He had a moustache and a cane. Baggy pants kept optimistic and cheerful despite being rebuffed by everyone as he tried to make friends in various settings including:
- a haunted house
- on the beach
- on a movie set
- at a circus
The Nitwits were based on a park bench character in TV’s Laugh-In. That’s it folks….
