LOVE!! Hands down! There has never been a better 60's TV cartoon to watch on Saturday mornings than this! (Of course there's The Flintstones, but wasn't that primetime? :p)

LOVE Rocky & Bullwinkle. Bullwinkle's voice is hilarious, the characters are great and work well off each other, the segments are short but they have good stories. And no matter many times he says it, but Bullwinkle saying "Nothin' up my sleeve..." for the repeating magic show bumper will never get to old for me. I don't know why.

Plus, it's on Netflix.

I used to watch all sorts of cartoons on Nickelodeon every night as a child--Rocky and Bullwinkle was the very last thing I watched before bed. I absolutely adored it. Many years later, I picked up all the dvds--and the stuff is still absolutely hillarious. The voice acting and storytelling is top notch!

I think it's a damned funny series... but, like "Underdog", "Calvin and the Colonel" "The Simpsons", and Family Guy"; it's certainly not something that I would watch and enjoy for it's animation.

Sorry, they never showed that here, but Hippity Hooper makes a ton of references to it so... are they related?

I think the series you are referring to is "Hoppity Hooper" and yes, they are both series from Jay Ward.

How could anyone not love "Rocky & Bullwinkle?" Jay Ward showed that it was possible to do funny, entertaining cartoons on the miniscule budgets TV required.

Of course the animation is terrible from a technical standpoint. Ward turned what could have been a weakness into a strength, adding to the real charm of his series (which also includes the underrated "George of the Jungle"). It frequently mocked its own threadbare production values.

The writing and the voice work was absolutely top-notch. The supporting segments, particularly "Fractured Fairy Tales" and "Dudley Do-Right" were outstanding. There have never been a better pair of cartoon villains than Boris & Natasha. And without Jay Ward, there are no "Simpsons" and "Family Guy."

I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like the show apparently. :P I've just never found it funny.
