Kids Cartoon: Laurel and Hardy

The Laurel and Hardy animated series ran for one season from 1966 to 1967. That's prime Yeti craze time.

And sure enough, His Himalayan Abominableness makes an appearance.   I'm not sure exactly which episode, probably "That's Snow Biz".

Here's the footage I nabbed these shots from.



Note the mop top, popular men's hairstyle in the 1960s.  I previously blogged about it here and here.

Seems like a popular hairstyle for Yetis in the 1960s, too. Cases-in-point:

Popeye, Dick Tracy Show, and Snooper and Blabber

Flurridelphia, Pennsnowmania
