“You meshuga ant! Your gonif schtick is making me kvetch, etc. etc!”

Happy Funshine Friday, Bionic dance team! Here’s a complete cartoon featuring The Ant and the Aardvark entitled “Don’t Hustle An Ant With Muscle.”

The Ant and the Aardvark was produced by Depatie-Freleng and this particular short first ran in theaters in December of 1970. Voices are by comedian John Byner – imitating Jackie Mason for the Aardvark and Dean Martin for the Ant. You may also remember the blue Aardvark from his TV pairings with the Pink Panther throughout the 70s. Slurp it up.

    Thanks for posting this. I saw many of these cartoons on our local “Wallace and Ladmo Show” in Phoenix. There weren’t many cartoons that had laugh tracks. The aardvark sounds like the Jewish robot tailors from “Sleeper”.

    Glad you liked it. “Wallace and Ladmo Show” eh? I’ll have to look them up.
