Status: Partially Found

The Comic Strip is a 1987 American action-comedy children's animated anthology television series produced by Rankin/Bass Productions. It is that studio's final cartoon T.V. series. During the 1987 season, it ran for an hour and a half in first-run syndication.[1] There is one season with 65 episodes, each episode containing two segments, totaling up to 130 segments.


Each episode is split into two ten-minute segments. The segments are alternated from episode to episode.[2] There are four cartoon segments: Karate Kat, Tiger Sharks, The Mini-Monsters, and Street Frogs. Karate Kat centers on a crime-fighting, anthropomorphic cat who works for a detective agency and uses his martial arts skills to defend his city from evil-doers; Tiger Sharks follows a super team of human/marine animal hybrids who have underwater adventures while fending off villains along the way; The Mini-Monsters features two human kids and siblings who go to summer camp where they meet an unusual bunch of fellow campers who are based on mostly movie monsters, and Street Frogs revolves around a crew of rapping amphibians.


A limited number of episodes are available and tend to differ from one video streaming site to another. Some websites have compiled all four cartoon segment series, each including three segments. These compilations have been taken from VHS compilations released by Lorimar Home Video and are found on Dailymotion and YouTube. On YouTube, segments from various series are on individually, including Spanish dubs of Karate Kat and The Mini-Monsters on the same site. Another compilation on YouTube has three segments, one from each series: Karate Kat, The Mini-Monsters, and Street Frogs. On the Internet Archive, there are seven segments of The Mini-Monsters, three of them in Greek, whereas some of the Tiger Sharks segments are on there as well, but they vary from being in English, Spanish, and Greek, and a couple are incomplete. Most of Street Frogs is unavailable, save for three segments. Karate Kat isn't there at all, other than the theme song. The entire series in English has yet to be available on any streaming site.
