DePatie-Freleng’s Baggy Pants & The Nitwits is one of those animated shows not currently available for sale and still lost in the recesses of your childhood mind. This one only rang a bell with me when I saw the characters in action again after 35 years.
Baggy Pants is a take off on Charlie Chaplin’s “Tramp” character, only this time the “Tramp” is an anthropomorphic cat. The Nitwits are played by Ruth Buzzi (Gladys) and Arte Johnson (Tyrone) and are characters based on their live-action Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In counterparts. 13 episodes of Baggy Pants & The Nitwits were produced and they originally ran September through November, 1977.
Excite your memories and take in the show’s intro and closing credits below.
