Welcome to the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast, the weekly show for all things animation, including news, reviews, and interviews, from co-hosts Dave Trumbore and Sean Paul Ellis. This week, we’re going back to our bread and butter as a podcast that also occasionally revisits, reviews, and ridicules some of the world’s weirdest animated series. We’re dipping into our Listener Suggestions–which we are legally obligated to cover; thanks, Ben!–in order to review the 80s kids cartoon, Kissyfur.

Here’s the official synopsis of Kissyfur, and bonus points to you for making it this far:
The show follows the adventures of Gus and Kissyfur, a father and son bear duo who had joined the circus. One day on a circus trip, the train they are riding in derails and the bears escape to a new life in the swamps of Paddlecab County. There, they protect the swamp’s inhabitants from the local bumbling alligators Floyd and Jolene. Kissyfur and his father use the skills they have acquired from the human world to create a boat tour business transporting other animals and their products down the river.
