This animated series is actually about three different cartoon scenarios. The first, "Schnookums and Meat!" involves a dumb pair of animals, Schnookums the cat and Meat the dog. The next, "Pith Possum: Super Dynamic Possum of Tomorrow" is a spoof of the 1966 Batman TV series, with Pith Possum and Obediah fighting crime in Possum City. Finally, "Tex Tinstar: The Best in the West" is a parody of Western serials, involving the title character, a cowboy, and his team. The end of each episode ends in a cliffhanger for next week, not unlike the serials or "Rocky and Bullwinkle". Written by Bluefire_72

Did You Know?


A canned SpaghettiOs pasta meal from Franco-American (a division of Campbell's) featuring pasta modeled after the characters Shnookums and Meat was produced as a tie-in product. In a surreal note, the label had a disclaimer stating that the product itself contained no meat, but the "meat" referred to on the label was the character "Meat" (although it was also available with meatballs, which did, obviously, contain meat).

Pure silly fun

'Schnookums & Meat: Funny Cartoon Show' is split up into three parts: Schnookums & Meat, the adventures of an orange cat and a blue dog; Pith Possum, the Batman spoof; and Tex Tinstar, the Old West spoof.

I never paid much attention to the Schnookums & Meat part of the show. It was obviously inspired by 'Ren & Stimpy', with the cat & dog, gross-out humor, and gratuitous violence, but didn't seem to have much else going for it. I'm sure it had its moments though, and if I could see the show again I'd give it another chance.

'Schnookums & Meat' was at its best on the Pith Possum and Tex Tinstar segments. They had great voice talent, comic timing, slapstick, sarcasm, and silly parodies. In the spirit of the 'The Tick' and 'Earthworm Jim' cartoons, they starred a clueless hero and his dorky sidekick(s). Pith and sidekick Obediah cruised to groovy surf music in the Possummobile to defeat the villain. Pith's arch-nemesis was Supper Squirrel, who held up restaurants and ate all the food. My favorite part of the show, though, was Tex Tinstar (and I don't tend to like Westerns). Along with his sidekick, the smelly Chafe, Tex tried to save the Old West from villains like Wrongo and the Polite Coyotes. I couldn't help but laugh at Wrongo's enjoyment of his evil ways.

I'd guess this show is so under appreciated because the Disney fans were expecting a cute, family-oriented cartoon with a moral – and saw this instead. The 'Ren & Stimpy Show', 'The Tick', and 'Earthworm Jim' fans meanwhile ignored it because it was Disney.
