Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Peter Potamus vs. a giant (Fe Fi Fo Fun, 1964)

Peter Potamus and his sidekick, So-So, run afoul of an angry giant who thinks Peter is Jack, as in, Jack & The Beanstalk, the result of Peter & So-So looking for land to escape a lightning storm, in "Fe Fi Fo Fun". Could a giant stand up to Peter's Hippo Hurricane Holler? Well, let's find out.......

Edit: 4/21/15: "Fe Fi Fo Fun" has been deleted by YouTube due to copyright issues.

Nearly 40 years later, Peter was reduced to a one-joke supporting character on Harvey Birdman, Attorney-at-Law. Maxmercury reminds us what that joke is........



Such disrespect makes it impossible for WB to utilize Peter as he was meant to be, especially with his 50th anniversary next year. Maybe teaming him with Scooby-Doo in something other than a fever dream might help.........

Rating: B.

WB has disappointed me that Peter Potamus has never made it's way to DVD. Would have thought with them doing limited to orders dvd's now and doing stuff like Snorks, Pac-Man and Inch High, they'd finish out the early stuff from the 60's like Peter Potamus.

Peter is included on at least one volume of the 1960's editions of Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits, but I get what you're saying, Geed, about the lack of a stand-alone DVD of the series. If Magilla Gorilla merited one, so should Peter.
