Saturday Morning Cartoons: “The Pogo Special Birthday Special”
A slightly less conventional (and certainly less played) Christmas special for you– from 1969, we bring you The Pogo Special Birthday Special, which also works as a holiday special for Valentine’s Day, Harbor Day, the fourth of July, and the entire month of Octember.
And it’s a Christmas special too? Well, any special which has Albert the Alligator and Beauregard performing and arguing over the correct lyrics to “Deck Us All With Boston Charlie” simply has to be a Christmas special.
So sit back, relax, and listen to June Foray as Pogo, Les Tremayne (yes, Mentor from Shazam!) as Churchy LaFemme, Chuck Jones as Porkypine, and Walt Kelly hisself as Albert The Alligator and P.T. Bridgeport.
And if you’re of a mind to, you might want to order a copy of Pogo: The Complete Daily & Sunday Comic Strips Volume 1. It’s worth it.
