Hippo Tub Co. (partially found animated series; 2001)
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.
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.  There are 'screenings' available for the series but no one has attempted contact with them yet.
