The Baby Huey Show
The Baby Huey Show is an American animated comedy television series which aired in syndication. The show featured the character 'Baby Huey'. 26 episodes were produced by combining Paramount's 'Famous Studios' theatrical cartoons and made-for-TV shorts. Huey was voiced by Sid Raymond. The first season was produced by 'Carbunkle Cartoons Inc.', a company who did animation on selected episodes of The Ren & Stimpy Show for seasons one and two. each episode usually consisted of a new 8 minute short followed by two classic Harveytoons (the first featuring Herman and Katnip and the second featuring Baby Huey) and a clip from another classic Harveytoon.
The second season was produced by Film Roman in addition to a new Baby Huey short. Each episode of the show contained an uncredited "Richie Rich Gems" vignette, featuring Richie Rich with guest appearances by Reggie, Tiny, Pee-Wee, Freckles, Cadbury, Professor Keenbean, Gloria, and Dollar. One made-for-TV Baby Huey cartoon from the first season was also rebroadcast during each second-season episode. Finally, each episode also contained a theatrical 'Baby Huey' or 'Herman and Katnip' cartoon from Famous Studios. After the "hiatus" of Carbunkle Cartoons, the second season was produced by Film Roman and thus had different writers and directors (PAT VENTURA is the chief amongst them). Joe Alaskey was cast in the title role, instead of the original star Sid Raymond from the first season who had originated the voice in 1949.
Why It Rocks

- It became 1994's huge animation improvement over Don Bluth's infamous film A Troll in Central Park.
- It finally brought Baby Huey back to the screen.
- The character designs are pure clean, similar to the old series.
