Posse Impossible is a series of animated segments as part of the CB Bears, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC's Saturday morning children's programming debuting. It ran in 1977, airing 13 episodes that spanned one season.

Prototypes of Big Duke, Stick and Blubber first appeared in the Hong Kong Phooey episode "Comedy Cowboys." Making these shorts kinda of a spinoff.

The segments center around a sheriff with his goofy Posse of deputies, as they go around catching notorious outlaws who cause trouble in the town of Saddlesore.

The entire series has been released on VHS.




The score was composed by Hoyt Curtin.
