'''''Fraidy Cat''''' was a 1975 Filmation cartoon. It originally premiered on ABC's ''Uncle Croc's Block'' (which had both live action and animation) along with two other cartoons. The others were ''Wacky and Packy'' and ''M.U.S.H.'' It should not be confused with the ''Tom & Jerry'' short from 1942.

''Fraidy Cat'', or at least some of its episodes, may have lapsed into the Public Domain, possibly because Filmation [http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm forgot to publish the cartoons with a copyright notice]. The musical cues were still under copyright in 2004 (administered by Warner-Chappell Music), as is ''Uncle Croc'' ([http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9naJtTMnBgE which actually displayed] a copyright notice for Filmation). As such, the copyright for both will expire at the end of 2070.

The show's title card

Status: Found

Date found: 2005

Found by: vcrfromheck

Fraidy Cat was a 1975 Filmation cartoon. It originally premiered on ABC's Uncle Croc's Block (which had both live action and animation) along with two other cartoons, Wacky and Packy and M.U.S.H. It should not be confused with the Tom & Jerry short from 1942 or the cancelled Disney animated movie.

Hallmark Cards acquired Filmation in 1995, and they converted the original master tapes from NTSC to PAL before discarding the NTSC tapes. This conversion pitched the videos up by a half-step. After a massive shuffling of rights, the Filmation library is now the property of NBC Universal under DreamWorks Classics.

Fraidy Cat, or at least some of its episodes, may have lapsed into the Public Domain, possibly because Filmation forgot to publish the cartoons with a copyright notice. The musical cues were still under copyright in 2004 (administered by Warner-Chappell Music), as is Uncle Croc (which actually displayed a copyright notice for Filmation). As such, the copyright for both will expire at the end of 2070.

Episodes

As of January 2021, the entire series has been found so far. Here is a list of the episodes that were created.

A Tumblr user found a few home video releases which contain the ten found episodes (and possibly the missing ones).

At one point, a user named Dark_Timur claimed to have found two episodes (Puss N Boots and Double Trouble), but it turns out that the former is a Looney Tunes short, while the other is a Tom and Jerry cartoon.
