Cartoon in 80s or 90s - please help!

Name Space:
Page Type:
I am not sure how this works...I am looking for a cartoon that would have played in the mid 80s to early 90s. Unfortunately, the only thing I can remember about it is that there was a lizard/iguana/something and it had a frilled neck. In the intro, it would run around like a crazy thing and run at the camera. There may have been a koala. (Its been awhile lol). We didn't have cable, so it would have had to be regular tv, or PBS, or something along that line. We only had Disney when it was a free preview. TIA!

    This belongs in Remember That Show.

    First of all, we do actually have a section on the site where you can ask for identifications for something, it's called Remember That Show? (it's in the menu on the left under Troperville).

    Secondly, it almost sounds like you're describing The Rescuers Down Under; it has one of the "weird-headed things" in it named Frank, who was really spastic, and would run around in circles, and there was also a Deadpan Snarker koala named Krebbs. They were held captive by a poacher.

    Do you remember the reptile also riding a larger lizard, whipping his tail like a lasso, and yelling, "Howdy-howdy-howdy!"? If so, then The Rescuers Down Under is definitely what you're thinking of.

    You're not quite in the right place. YKTTW (where you are now) is for proposing new tropes.

    You can ask for help finding an old show or whathaveyou here; You Know That Show

    Sorry, I know that's where it belongs, but for the life of me, I couldn't find where to post there. I looked up Rescuers Down Under (its been years since since I have seen the movie, but that's not it either...

    There's an "Add new query" button on the right side, all the way at the bottom of the page.
