The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, originally titled Rocky and His Friends in its first two seasons and The Bullwinkle Show in its last three seasons, was an animated television series produced by Jay Ward Productions that originally ran on ABC and later on NBC from 1959 to 1964. Known for its writing and humor that appealed to adults and children alike, the series was structured as a variety show, consisting of the following segments:
  • The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, the main feature, which appeared as the first and last segments of every episode. These segments focused on the serialized adventures of a flying squirrel named Rocket J. Squirrel and his dim-witted friend Bullwinkle J. Moose. The villains were the fiendish Pottsylvanian spies, Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale, who were forever attempting to catch the moose and squirrel for their boss, Fearless Leader.
  • Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties, a parody of early 20th century melodrama and silent film serials starring a heroic but dim-witted Canadian Mountie in constant pursuit of his nemesis, Snidely Whiplash.
  • Peabody's Improbable History, about a smart talking dog named Mr. Peabody and his adopted human son, Sherman, who travel through time with his "WABAC machine" to witness how historical events happened.
  • Fractured Fairy Tales, which featured famous fairy tales and children's stories in a satirical light.
  • Aesop & Son, which followed a similar structure, but with Aesop fables.

Reruns of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show were aired on Cartoon Network from 1996 to 2002, and were also briefly aired on Boomerang in 2011.
