The Abbott & Costello Cartoon Show, also known as Abbott & Costello, is an animated American television series produced by Hanna-Barbera and RKO General. It first aired in syndication. It ran from 1967 to 1968, airing 39 episodes.

Production

Development

During production, Bud Abbott, an original actor for the Abbott & Costello series, provided the voice of his animated self in the hopes of getting some more money. By the time the cartoon was produced, Lou Costello had already passed away, so his voice was done by a close friend named Stan Irwin.

Since Abbott was near death, Costello was the main focus of the cartoons.

Music

The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.
