The Beagles was the last cartoon produced by Total Television Productions. It aired on CBS from September 10th, 1966, to September 2nd, 1967. It was inspired by the rock group The Beatles, who had a cartoon series (produced by King Features) airing on ABC.[1] The show focuses on the lives of the members of "The Beagles," including Stringer (voiced by Mort Marshall), Tubby (voiced by Allen Swift, an occurring voice actor for TTV dating back to The King and Odie), and their manager Scotty (also voiced by Allen Swift).

While Joe Harris (co-founder of Total Television and creator of Underdog) recently mentioned in an interview with Mark Arnold for the book Created and Produced by Total Television Productions that he has the masters of the show, it's unknown whether or not DreamWorks Classics, the current rights holder, will help or hinder a re-release of the series onto a new medium.[2] Much like its sister show Underdog, The Beagles episodes were typically told in four-part stories, with two per 30-minute episode, with the exception of the first and final episodes. YouTube channel “dandydeal” has uploaded the first two parts of the episode Man in the Moon, with a slightly obscured outro, and both parts for the final episode, I Feel Like Humpty Dumpty. The YouTube channel “toontracker” has uploaded the first part of the episode “Foreign Legion Flops.”

The “dandydeal” channel later disappeared, though the Man in the Moon episodes were also uploaded by the channel “The Hardy Boys Cartoon Show,” with its watermarks in tact. The Humpty Dumpty episode, however, disappeared.


On March 26, 2021, the YouTube channel “Total TeleVision Cartoons” uploaded the entirety of The Beagles original songs, which includes a song from every episode. On July 25, 2021, they uploaded the complete I Feel Like Humpty Dumpty. On Jan 22, 2022 the same channel uploaded parts one and two for the episodes Foreign Legion Flops and Man in the Moon (without watermarks), along with previews for the part three of these episodes. They were also uploaded to

On February 23, 2022, Twitter user “aleslostmedia” posted a thread revealing animation cels from various episodes and storyboards from at least two, originally posted on eBay by “investorcollectables,” on by an unknown user, and printed in the book Created and Produced by Total Television Productions.[3]
