Rocky and Bullwinkle turn 50 – Arts - The Press Democrat - Santa Rosa, CA - Archive: "When Jay Ward launched the “Rocky & Bullwinkle” cartoon TV show in 1959, he didn’t have a huge budget for fancy animation.
So he compensated for that with a daring new innovation — great writing. (How’s that for a concept?)
Thursday, Nov. 19, marks the 50th anniversary of the squirrel and the moose, one of the oddest (and funniest) couples in show biz."
