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 Horton the hippo (Keith Knight), his partner Norton the boot-wearing bird (Neil Crone), and the various other citizens of Drain World operate a sort of lost-and-found where they attempt to find the owners of any lost items and return them.
