Schnookums and MeatSchnookums and Meat
, created by Bill Kopp (of Eek! The Cat
fame), is what happens when Disney
tries to Follow the Leader
The series debuted in 1995. At a time when Ren and Stimpy
was doing well on Nickelodeon
, this show was made to try and duplicate its success. The end result was an allegedly wacky series. Each episode was composed of three segments:
- Schnookums and Meat: Follows the exploits of a dog and cat pair who live in a home with two faceless owners.
- Pith Possum, Super-Dynamic Possum of Tomorrow: A superhero spoof, similar to Darkwing Duck but more extreme. Pith and his sidekick Obediah the Wonder Raccon protect Possum City from a variety of bad guys.
- Tex Tinstar: A cowboy who fights alongside his friends to defeat the Wrong Riders. Done in a serial style similar to Rocky and Bullwinkle.
The show aired on CBS

, and eventually on Toon Disney
. Only two comics were made out of it in Disney Adventures
