Secret Squirrel, John-O?



Do you see Secret Squirrel ??

It's not Secret Squirrel !!

This one is a true test of 1960's (kid) pop culture in Los Angeles. I think the show only ran locally.

Think Gigantor, Kimba, and Marine Boy.

I think it's amazing that ATP missed that with those 3 clues you gave.

Now it's bugging me, Because I have no memory of this cartoon (Maybe I was to busy watching "The Man from UNCLE"
or Secret Agent/Dangerman)

I actually preferred Spy Shows to Cartoons as a kid.

The secret agent is Koichi Hoshi.

A duck, horse, and rabbit could only be the Amazing Three. Captain Bokko (rabbit), Nokko (horse), and Pukko (duck).

In the American version of the series (released in syndication through Erika Productions in 1967), Bokko's name was changed to Bonnie. Nokko became Ronnie, Pukko became Zero, Shinichi was renamed Kenny Carter, and Koichi was given the name Randy.

Edit: Googled this info. Never saw the show. I do remember watching Kimba, Gigantor, and Speed Racer on local LA tv stations in the 1960's.

Stupid Google !! Takes all the fun out of trivia.

Actually Brudda Bear got it first but gave ATP the chance to figure it out.

The Secret Agent's name, in the translated cartoon from Japan, was Randy Carter. He was the "James Bondian" brother of a young boy who befriended the Amazing 3 and often got them out of scrapes. The Amazing 3 themselves were also spies of a sort, sent from an alien world to assess the Earth, taking on an undercover animal form.

I have never met another person who remembers this show. I often used to think it was a childhood dream of mine.

Sorry John-O, I wanted to put ATP out of his misery.

This show was probably not shown on Sheriff John or Hobo Kelly which I associate with the local Los Angeles cartoon scene of the 1960's. I think I watched the Japanese Cartoons (Kimba, Gigantor, & Speed Racer) on channel 28 which made for bad reception and a snowy picture. The Amazing Three was probably beyond the reach of my tv's rabbit ears.

Hobo Kelly and Sheriff John ?? I remember eating baloney sandwiches on TV trays watching those shows, my mother warning me not to spill my milk in the den.

The Amazing 3 actually ran on local TV (as did other translated Japanese cartoons in the 1960's like Gigantor, Marine Boy, 8th Man, and Prince Planet). I know because we didn't have a channel 28 on our TV until the 1970's.

Thanks for posting that opening clip Rum Dog, the exact plots of the shows escape my memory, but I DO remember that song. Maybe other people's cool parents were actually taking them to see "Thunderball" and "You Only Live Twice" at the movies. I had to get by with cartoons.

That's why you got me John-O, I never saw or heard of the show, But I do
remember "Prince Planet" & the rest of the Japanese cartoons from the 60s

I also preferred Gerry Anderson's shows (Fireball XL5, Stingray, Thunderbirds & Captain Scarlet)
I did watch Sheriff John & Hobo Kelly (Remember Diver Dan?)

Good question since only a few Tiki peeps knew it (Thanks Rum Dog for the answer)

I remember that UHF channel. It was not channel 28, which was alway PBS, but fifty-something. They showed Adams Family reruns and Japanese cartoons back in the Sixties. Every commercial on that channel was for some sort of fruit stripe gum.

Jeez, I cannot remember where I last left my car keys but I can remember obscure Los Angeles UHF channels from the Sixties. Should I be ashamed of myself?

And while we're on the subject of 1960's cartoons, some of the grooviest Spy-Fi / Crime Jazz tunes came from these shows, especially the Hanna Barbera Ones..

1. Fantastic Four

2. Birdman

3. Herculoids

4. Space Ghost

5. Jonny Quest

6. I especially like the jazzy incidental background music from Spider-Man (1967)


Hoyt Curtin. It was
Hoyt Curtin for almost all things Hanna Barbera.

Still not sure who composed the Spider-Man jazz though.

Is this all really "Crime Jazz" though ?? Sharp horn riffs set against action sequences always evoke that musical genre for me, even it it's for cartoon superheros.

BBC had a show on called Modern Spies ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01fqc6z ). I found part 1 very interesting. Both part 1 and 2 are on YouTube, here are the links:
