* {{Expy}}: Often considered one of Yogi Bear due to the general premise of an animal trying to escape from their captivity, with the voice and verbal quirks of Harum (a very minor ghost character who appeared in [[WesternAnimation/SnooperAndBlabber]]'s ''Gone Real Ghosts'' and [[WesternAnimation/{{Snagglepuss}}]]' ''Be My Ghost'').

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Most people acknowledge that the original run of the show was from September 1962 to August 1963. In actuality, the earliest it could have aired is March 1962 as that was when Hanna-Barbera started selling the new cartoon package, and the package was still being advertised to stations as late as January 1963 so the end could have been much later (as it was sold to {{syndication}} from the start and not on one network initially like every previous H-B show, the true dates are hard to trace).
** The name "New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series" itself is an example; the show has never been referred to by that name, at least not on air. They're three separate shows which were sold as one package.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As collated in [[http://yowpyowp.blogspot.com/2012/05/hanna-barbera-notes-1960-61.html this blog post]], there are a couple of interesting points about the series that can be found pre-1962;
** ''Wally Gator'' was the ''last'' series to be developed as a concept, even though it became the best known of the three shows that were entered into syndication together (''Touche Turtle'' and ''Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har'' prototypes were going to be the only two shows put into syndication, and had concepts as far back as late 1960).
** At one time, the show was planned to have the voice work of Creator/PaulFrees and Bill Thompson. Given Frees' previous voice work as [[WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle Captain Peachfuzz]], it's possible that Frees was playing Wally himself, and that the Ed Wynn impression was a character trait from an early stage.

** In fairness Wally always wanted to ESCAPE the zoo. In contrast Yogi knew the park was a soft touch and had no desire to escape it, apart from the very first episode 'Yogi' Big Break.' He learned his lesson there, after getting mixed up in a bear hunt and never tried it again.

** In fairness Wally always wanted to ESCAPE the zoo. zoo and was a recurring part of his gimmick. In contrast Yogi knew the park was a soft touch and only had no desire to escape it, apart from that in his earliest days. Such as the very first episode 'Yogi' 'Yogi's Big Break.' He learned his lesson there, after getting mixed up in a bear hunt Break' and never tried it again.others featuring Yogi sometimes out of the park. This soon was abandoned in favor of the gimmick Yogi is now famous as, so if anything Yogi passed that show theme on to Wally.

One of many of the roster created by Creator/HannaBarbera after the success of WesternAnimation/YogiBear and ''WesternAnimation/TheHuckleberryHoundShow'', and one of the first to directly lift its premise from an existing show. Created in 1962 as part of ''The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series'', a syndicated package which also contained ''Touché Turtle'' and ''Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har''. Wally Gator (Creator/DawsButler) was an alligator who craved going outside the confines of his zoo's walls, and as such tried to escape in almost every episode. Stopping him was his zookeeper, Mr. Twiddle (Creator/DonMessick), whose success varied greatly between episodes. Having any other character appear in more than one episode was itself a rarity.
