The Adventures of Paddy the Pelican is one of the first cartoons made for TV in the 1950's, airing on Chicago's WENR-TV.

Due to the low-production budget, it's infamous for its pencil sketch animation, dark backgrounds, looping sequences, and poor lip syncing.

Because of this, it is often mentioned among "the worst cartoons ever".



Only 6 episodes of the series were made. Of those 6, 3 episode names are known, and only 2 are available online.
