    Anyone remember a late 60's cartoon about King Arthur, I think was American. The knights were very hippie types in their speech. Could have been called Camelot, but cannot find any mention of it, had a very groovy theme tune - Arthur the King of Camelot etc etc..

    This'll be Arthur and the Square Knights Of The Round Table. It's Australian (I think Rod Hull scripted some), and was made circa 66-68.



    It's out on UK DVD - the whole lot, I think; �4.99 from HMV.com!

    I knew that wasn't American. I would have remembered something like that.

    You're in luck there, HIPPIEDAVE! That must be the dream reply to end all dream replies - a positive identification, then finding it's available to buy! I'm pleased for you.



    Well done, David

    It used to be shown quite late in the evening for a cartoon as I seem to remember it could be a bit risque(for the 60's).Probably not as much as the Simpsons is now.George Of The Jungle used to be shown here in the north east in a similar time-slot.

    Might invest in Arthur if I can get me card out of suspended animation.

    Blimey, I'd forgotten all about this series! Arthur wore a crown that was far too big for him I recall and yes, it had a super theme song.

    I seem to remember without Googling or anything that it looked a bit like "The Wizard of Id" cartoons?



    There's a similar knight errant/King Arthur cartoon on now with a slightly-Pugwashesque animation technique which my daughter enjoyed when it was on - don't know what its called though. Pretty funny.

    Can you remember how Sir Lancelot used to speak? He used to whistle when he pronounced his S sounds, particularly when saying 'Yesss Sssire!'

    All together now....



    Arthur, the king of Camelot; he's a ringa-dinga-ling of a king!

    Arthur, he likes to joust a lot and he really makes the kingdom swing.

    Dragons run from Arthur's lance and the Black Knight hasn't a chance.

    If you're in trouble send a cable to the hero of our fable.

    That's Arthur of Camelot!!!

    Never mind Arthur, who remembers Sir Prancealot ? great music, wonder who played it ?. While we are on the subject, who also remembers Astronut and Deputy Dawg ? They were all so much better that than the cheap garbage that the children are shown today. Wonder if todays Children will be nostalgic for todays TV when they are our age ?

    Of couse they will. And if they saw what we watched, all they'd see is the crappy limited animation and not how cleverly written the best of them were. Don't know Astronaut, fondly recall Deputy Dawg.

    Does anyone else remember Tomfoolery? For some reason my memory always lumps it in with Arthur, but I know full well the only connection is in my head.



    I'd love to see it again (Tomfoolery, not my head).
