The title card for the show.

Status: Partially Found

Hippo Tub Co. was a CGI animated series which aired on CBC from 2001 until approximately 2003. It was loosely based on the novelty children's song "Hey Daddy" by Anne Murray.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The show centers around the underground city of Drain World, where everything that has ever been lost down a drain ends up. There, Harley the hippo (Keith Knight), his partner Norton the boot-wearing bird (Neil Crone), and the various other citizens of Drain World operate a "lost-and-found" where they attempt to find the owners of any lost items and return them.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Although there were allegedly VHS releases of the show, none of them have surfaced. However, a DVD of episodes 1-6 from the French dub is in stock.[1]

Although the exact number isn't too clear, according to many sources, there were 26 segments produced, meaning 13 24-minute episodes. So far, only 4 of the 13 have been found in English. The current distributor of the series is Octapixx Worldwide, who has the series on their website. [2] There are 'screenings' available for the series but no one has attempted contact with them yet.
