'''''The Adventures of Paddy the Pelican''''' is one of the first made-for-television cartoons from 1950 that aired on Chicago's WENR-TV (now WLS-TV).<ref>[http://www.chicagotelevision.com/friends.htm Chicago Television's page on children's TV shows aired during the 1950s, including a mention of ''Paddy the Pelican''.] Retrieved 07 May '19</ref> This animated series was created by Sam Singer. It originally debuted in the US. The series is about a pelican and his adventures with friends.
It is notoriously considered among the worst cartoons of all time. This is thanks to the obviously low production budget, which led to its characteristic pencil sketch animation, dark backgrounds, looping sequences, and poor lip syncing.
Only six episodes of the series were made, and every episode has been available online since October 2016.
The series was originally conceived as a puppet show, and Sam Singer also created a tie-in comic book series called ''Paddy Pelican Junior Journal''.<ref>[https://books.google.com/books?id=m_UDAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA8&lpg=PA8&dq=paddy+the+pelican&hl=en#v=onepage&q=paddy%20the%20pelican&f=false An excerpt from ''Billboard'' mentioning Paddy's puppet show and his comic book series.] Retrieved 12 Feb '20</ref> However, any existing traces of either are currently lost.
