    Did Muppet Babies show any classic Paramount cartoons?

    Like This Thread!

    I've been reading the credits to a lot of Muppet Babies seasons, and I've noticed they had to clear a lot of rights.

    I noticed three companies' name in particular:


    Republic Pictures
    UCLA Film And Television Archive
    Kit Parker Films


    Those companies played (two of the three still do) a role in the pre-1950 Paramount cartoon library, so was some Fleischer and/or Famous Studios cartoons released by Paramount Pictures shown? Were they faded TV prints, or did they show any Technicolor (B&W for Betty Boop, LOL). If so, would you link to any clips of Muppet Babies references, shout outs, or short clip shows of Paramount cartoons?

    In answer to your question, I do remember the Muppet Babies episode "Six-to-Eight Weeks" having a bit that spoofs the old "clubhouse" kids shows of the 1950's and 1960's, with the bit using clips from "Popeye Meets Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves", "Christmas Comes But Once a Year", and one of the post-Hayes Code Betty Boop cartoons.
