It's the Wolf is a series of animated segments as part of the Cattanooga Cats, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming debuting. It ran from 1969 to 1970, airing 25 episodes.
Despite how little known the segments were, Lambsy would later reappear for the Yogi's Ark Lark TV movie and Mildew would later reappear for the Laff-A-Lympics TV series as an on-the-field sportscaster alongside Snagglepuss. Mildew would also later reappear for the Wacky Races 2017 episode "Little Pink Riding Hood," where he played a villainous role, much like he did on his debut series role. Mildew, Lambsy and Bristlehound later appear in the Jellystone! reboot in 2021.
So far, the shorts have not been released onto DVD by Warner Archive Collection, likely due to the copyrighted songs featured in the Cattanooga Cats series. The episode "Slumber Jacks" was originally announced to be featured on the DVD, Best of Warner Bros. 25 Cartoon Collection: Hanna-Barbera, part of the Best of Warner Bros. series, but was removed for an unknown reason., however, the first half of them have been released onto VHS by Hanna-Barbera Home Video in 1988.
